Course Description

Growth in business takes place in two primary ways: complexity and uniqueness. As your business grows, you also must understand the complexity and uniqueness in your clients’ financial requirements. If you want to provide accurate advice to your clients depending on the growth pattern of their business as an accounting, taxation, or finance professional, you need to understand the concepts of accounting platforms and accounting applications. This is why the differences between an accounting platform versus an application matter.

One enables you to grow freely and adapts to this growth, while the other doesn’t. Whether you’re a C-level executive, a division or department lead, IT administrator, or company accountant, this impacts your work. Remember, accounting data is tied to sales, support, and operations. 

The accounting system structure directly impacts how fluidly other applications and departments can understand and process accounting information. The definitions of Accounting application and Accounting platform is: 

  • An accounting application is a software program that captures and records all accounting transactions. It often divides functions into modules such as accounts payable, accounts receivable, inventory, and more.
  • An accounting platform is an open environment where you can grow and scale your accounting and financial management. A platform allows for seamless connectedness between multiple softwares, enabling users to run their entire business in one ecosystem.
