This is the second installment of our series about the benefits to you of selecting LedgerDocs for your business document management and storage needs versus using one of four popular online storage solutions.
In our last post, we compared LedgerDocs with Dropbox, the #1 general document storage application, and LedgerDocs is the superior choice for businesses, bookkeepers, and accountants. This post will outline the reasons why LedgerDocs, which is specifically designed for the unique document management needs of bookkeepers, accountants, and businesses, is still the best choice over SkyDrive by Microsoft.
SkyDrive is a relatively new online application from Microsoft that gives users access to all of their files on most browsers, smart phones (especially Windows phones), and tablets. There are dedicated apps for Windows phones and iPhones and iPads; all other smart phones can access SkyDrive via their phone browser. The Microsoft OneNote application is also available through SkyDrive. Files of all types and all sizes can be easily uploaded and shared with emailed links. If your office and your team are standardized on PCs and Microsoft Office, SkyDrive is an especially good solution for your general files and sharing.
SkyDrive is free for up to 2GB of document storage, and the top pricing level is US$50/annually for an additional 100GB of online storage. In order to access the documents, users must also have the Microsoft Office Suite and OneNote installed on their PC computers. If you have a Windows shop, SkyDrive is a good general solution.
For managing the financial documents your business needs to access and store every day, LedgerDocs is designed to manage all of your financial documents in its secure online storage system. All of your cheques, invoices, bank statements, project documents, and receipts can be stored by project, and securely shared with your team members, bookkeeper, and accountant depending on permissions you set. With LedgerDocs, you can:
- Setup customized project folders and subfolders to file and manage all of your financial records.
- Take pictures of your receipts and send them directly by email to LedgerDocs from your iPhone, Android phone, or Blackberry.
- Type notes to your bookkeeper or accountant.
- Search, browse, and annotate your documents right within your browser without having to open the actual documents in another application.
- Stay productive away from the office with the dedicated free and universal iPhone and iPad apps.
SkyDrive is a great solution for your general online storage needs; especially if you use PCs and Microsoft Desktop Office Suite products. But if you are a business owner, bookkeeper, or accountant, LedgerDocs offers you exceptional enhanced benefits that are based on your projects and the ability to set up your online files to suit your circumstances and have everything you need for your financial documents all in one place.
