Accountants have already started seeing the benefits of cloud-based accounting software, and it’s time that businesses start recognizing these benefits too.
Barcelona, Spain (PRWEB) July 13, 2015
GetApp, the largest cloud-based business apps marketplace, has released its Q2 GetRank of the top 25 accounting solutions in four different categories; Netsuite took the top spot in Accounting, Xero in Accounts Payable and Billing and Invoicing, while Concur took the lead in Expense Management.
The ranking will be updated every quarter to reflect newly available data.
A wide range of data points is what makes GetApp’s ranking unique in the industry, with data collected from GetApp and other third-party sources. These data points include User Generated Reviews, Integrations, Mobile Platforms, Media Presence, and Security.
User generated reviews and integrations were calculated using data listed on GetApp, while security scores were calculated using vendor responses to a security survey, based on the Cloud Security Alliance Self-Assessment Form. Mobile platform data was pulled from Google Play and the App Store, while Media Presence was calculated using data collected from social media monitoring tool Brandwatch.
The goal of the ranking is to provide valuable data to businesses looking to make a first assessment when choosing accounting software.
“Accountants have already started seeing the benefits of cloud-based accounting software, and it’s time that businesses start recognizing these benefits too. Notably, accounting apps are becoming extremely integrated and automated, and it’s becoming increasingly easier for non-accountants to easily use accounting software for their business,” says GetApp CEO Christophe Primault.
Along with the ranking, GetApp has released a research report highlighting software trends in the accounting industry this year. The report features interviews and insights from Sholto Macpherson, a business technology journalist, consultant, and analyst specializing in cloud accounting software.
