11641401_lThe first two months of 2014 brought 72 new proposed U.S. regulations that directly affected small businesses, 12 of which cost $100 in increasing compliance costs according to National Federation of Independent Business, Small Businesses for Sensible Regulations coalition.

“Often, these agencies give little or no consideration to cost on businesses or jobs that might be lost. American businesses are increasingly feeling suffocated by the volume, scope and cost of all of these new regulations,” said an article about new regulations by the US Chamber of Commerce.

As increased government regulations seems a fact of life that shows no sign of stopping, small business are face increasing compliance costs that make it difficult to compete with larger, more established enterprises.  In order to stay competitive in this constrained environment SMBs have more reason than ever to look toward business management software and automated processes to keep up with ever changing regulations.

The upshot is that technology like enterprise resource planning that had been priced out of the SMB market just a few years ago is available to even the smallest of businesses thanks to cloud computing.  Of course the idea of storing valuable data and conducting mission critical processes over the web seems counter to regulatory compliance best practices, however this is a misconception.
