An ASP or application service provider allows a small business to login to their computers where popular accounting software packages (like Microsoft Office Accounting, and QuickBooks) are located. The small business owner’s books are then hosted on the ASP’s computer where they can be accessed anytime online.
SaaS or Software as a Service is typically a web based accounting system (such as QuickBooks Online, or AccountantsWorld Accounting Relief) where a small business owner would login to the accounting system itself instead of a computer that hosts the accounting software.
Which system is right for your small business will depend on a few factors so be sure to speak to a financial technology consultant and conduct a detailed needs assessment that focuses on your existing systems and processes.
