Business owners are busy, constantly trying to divide their time among countless, often repetitive, tasks and activities. They search for efficiencies and smarter solutions that can not only add value to their company, but also give them some of their precious time back. Oftentimes, they barely realize where those hours are spent, as calendars fill up with mundane tasks that, while necessary, drain time relentlessly.
One way to get some of that time back is with automated accounting software, such as Accounted. By simplifying your accounting processes, you will save time and money, benefitting your business in more ways than you can count (pun intended). In addition to automating various accounting systems, there are also numerous useful add-ons to meet each business’s own unique needs.
Breaking Down Different Add-ons
Authorize.Net is a payment gateway that simplifies the process of accepting electronic payments and credit card purchases in person, online, or over the phone. Founded upon the understanding that payment processing can be a large part of business, the goal of this add-on is to help you save valuable time with the payment process. With Authorize.Net, transactions are automatically sent over a secure connection to the Processor. The Processor then passes the transaction to the Credit Card Interchange System, where Authorize.Net stores the transaction results and sends them back to the customer and/or the merchant. The integration of Authorize.Net into Accounted provides a great resource to start streamlining the processing of your payments and help to optimize cash flow.
Stripe is a payment processing platform that can also be integrated with Accounted. It allows you to transfer money from a customer’s bank account into your business’s account via credit or debit card transactions. Stripe accomplishes this by eliminating the need to store credit card information, a limitation business owners experienced in the past. Previously, when setting up an internal online payment system, web developers had to follow strict regulations surrounding the storing of credit card information, as per the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This is a complicated process that often requires an enormous amount of paperwork and costly third-party consultation. Fortunately, Stripe takes care of much of that work for you.
