LedgerDocs is an online document management application and collaboration tool that allows businesses to scan and upload financial documents that can be accessed off-site by their bookkeepers who can then respond with questions and comments using the same platform.
The service is now integrated with DropBox, a leading provider of cloud storage and document sharing for personal and business users. Its wide range of functions simplifies the process of uploading and storing documents. Integrating LedgerDocs and DropBox provides a streamlined process for users to upload, manage, and share documents.
Typically, off-site bookkeepers spend a lot of their time trying to communicate with clients by phone, fax or e-mail, or they have to travel to clients' offices where they sift through piles of paper sorting out receipts, invoices and other financial records they require to keep the company's books balanced and up to date.
If a client is not available at the time to answer questions about the documents, the bookkeeper usually leaves notes and schedules a return visit or a follow-up call to get the answers. LedgerDocs puts the whole process online. In effect, it becomes a virtual shoebox coupled to functions that allow storage and sharing of documents and information and collaboration between bookkeepers and clients.
For example, clients scan and upload the documents to the LedgerDocs platform, and their bookkeepers then sort, search and file them quickly and efficiently and use the platform to send notes back clients requesting more information if necessary. The service is available 24/7 which adds to its convenience.

"LedgerDocs is a pure document management system and not tied to any specific accounting software platform, so it can be used anywhere in the English-speaking world - and translations of the app into other languages is on the cards," says
And at a cost of only about
"We wanted to develop an application that would lower the cost of business for bookkeepers by reducing travel time to clients' offices while also enhancing the level of service they were providing," says
For clients, the benefit of LedgerDocs is their ability to deal with questions and requests for more information when it suits them, which is often after business hours, and then respond via LedgerDocs.

The three trends are:
-- The migration of text documents from paper to digital formats. -- A migration from business affairs being conducted in person and at a
specific location to being conducted online from whatever location is
most convenient. -- A transition in business organization from large integrated corporations
that staff up internally to meet all their requirements to a hybrid global model in which core functions are still done internally but context functions are outsourced to specialist providers.
"LedgerDocs is perfectly aligned with these trends," says
