From the June 2012 review of Document Storage Systems.

Best Firm Fit

CyberCabinet is a good fit for small firms that want to move to a cloud computing model. The suite of online applications from AccountantsWorld provides a “leave the driving to us” model for dealing with all of the IT infrastructure issues related to an on premise solution that can be particularly frustrating to deal with for sole practitioners and small firms that typically don’t have any internal IT staff.

 

Strengths:

  • Generous 5Gb storage space included in base pricing.
  • Portal application provided with Website Relief website application
  • Integrated with online practice management, payroll and accounting applications
  • 100% browser based SaaS (Software as a Service) solution
  • Customized folder structure
  • “CyberDrop” folder lets you drag and drop files into CyberCabinet from your PC
  • "CyberSend" adds emails from Outlook, with attachments, to client folders instantly

 

Potential Limitations

  • The online suite does not offer an integrated tax application

 

Features Overview
