Calculated IT solutions for your Accountancy practice
As an industry that is focused on figures, being able to suitably manage your clients’ data is essential - and having the right IT infrastructure in place is key to achieving this. Indeed in a recent survey 30% of respondents stated that technology issues were one of their top five concerns. This shows just how much the industry needs to adapt and re-evaluate their existing solutions.

Managing your Client’s Data
When dealing with the accounts of your clients you need to know that the software and IT infrastructure that your practice relies on will support the work of your employees and manage company data in a suitable manner. Slow Network Connectivity, for example, can really hinder the progress of work and potentially lead to delays for your clients.
There a number of solutions available to ensure that your company and employees needn’t face this issue. From our 100Gig Ethernet Private Network to Big Data solutions and Cloud for Enterprise, we have the solutions and services available to ensure that your firm can work to the best of its ability - and provide the best service to your clients.
The implementation of new technology within the Accountancy sector is not about increasing the level of automation, but providing your employees with the very best platform to work from; increasing productivity, employee satisfaction and revenue in turn.
The Basis for your Software
Without a fast, secure and reliable Network Connection Accountancy software will often face lag and jitter - frustrating and hindering your employees.
The memory intensive software often used by Accountancy firms, such as Sage and IRIS, needs a strong backbone in order to operate at the level required; so, ensuring that you have a reliable Network and Internet Connection in place to allow these programs to operate is essential.
Working from within a Private Cloud environment also gives your firm the knowledge that your client data and financial details are held in a private and secure way. The CAPEX/OPEX benefits will assist your firm’s balance sheet too.
Creating a Collaborative Environment
Unified Communications is an emerging trend amongst a number of sectors, and it is just as relevant within Accountancy. Enabling employees to work alongside their colleagues in a more collaborative way means that they can achieve more, and therefore provide better customer service.
By offering employees the opportunity to communicate with each other through IM, Video Conferencing, Screen Sharing and Presence, they will be able to converse with each other in the way that best suits them and their project. Whether they are at home, abroad or in the office - your employees can collaborate on a spreadsheet or document through the use of Video Conferencing and Screen Sharing.
