Traditionally, everything in India was very paper driven – whether it be agreements, contracts, submissions and filing at various government departments, invoices, etc. and even payments!
India has made significant progress on this front and more so even during this pandemic that people have tried to minimize handling of paper and cash. RealBooks has been at the forefront on this from the very beginning. Our clients have found the paperless concept within RealBooks a blessing and so much so that clients who had initially migrated to RealBooks due to heavy volumes, multiple branches and GSTIN registrations,
now feel the single biggest advantage within RealBooks is the document attachment and referencing feature – you can actually approve invoices on the system, approve entries, payments – literally move the entire process online.
With offices functioning either from home or with limited staff in office to ensure some amount of social distancing RealBooks has been a blessing for our clients as it has ensured that you can actually control accounts from the comfort and safety of your homes. In fact our entire accounting outsourcing team has been Working-from-Home since March and we have added clients and business during this period. It has also reduced infrastructure costs and along with implementing task management tools – made the business vertical much more efficient. It is
not to say that physical offices / meetings aren’t required – they are very much required to ensure the human connect, but being in the same physical space while working individually is something most definitely not required.
Most successful entrepreneurs believe that a clear an uncluttered space gives them more clarity in their thoughts and help them stay organized making them more productive. Also, going paperless in a bigger way means saving the environment. A small contribution towards preserving our ecosystem.
Think about it! There are a number of software available – which if used smartly can help you achieve a truly paperless and online office!
Emiza is fast growing logistics start-up focusing on a spectrum of services such as Third-Party Logistics, Warehouse management, Order management, Multi-channel management etc.
We were earlier using Tally for our accounting and managing multiple GST, inter branch entries and consolidation was difficult and cumbersome. Everything had to be done on excel.
We were recommended RealBooks by a company in our network who had been happy using RealBooks. Our scope of operations was much broader compared to theirs, so were initially a bit hesitant.
After a detailed online demo, we felt confident that this is the right product for us. The implementation and training were very smooth and quick. Data from Tally was migrated easily.
The Realbook team supported us in migration from Tally to Realbook. Migration support was exceptionally well. Having used it for more than 12 months, I have no hesitation is recommending
RealBooks as a very robust, cloud-based accounting software.
Thank you Team RealBooks and wish you much success in coming future.
