We specialise in helping financial controllers understand the accounting software options that are available. With so many accounting applications, it can be a struggle to know which one to change to and to have the confidence in making that change. It can also be a challenge to ensure that everything gets transferred accurately and everyone is well trained and supported.

The problem today is that most accounts departments are not working as efficiently as they could be. They are using legacy accounting software that is expensive to maintain, tedious to use and is no longer fit for purpose.

If you are feeling frustrated, perhaps it is your system that is keeping you and your team from being as efficient as you could be and exhausting you from the amount of time it takes to get things done.

Why not book a Strategy Call with us. This will provide us with the opportunity of initially identifying your frustrations so we can point you in the right direction. Step two is to produce a Fact Find report. This will show us a clear picture of what is currently going on, what your current system does and what processes are in place. It will also identify your key objectives.

We now have a clear understanding of your requirements. A new application can be recommended based on these requirements and a smooth transition with accurate data transfer can take place based on a project plan. The ultimate result is a smooth transition from your old to your new accounting system which will save you time, save money and save on frustration.

We have implemented accounting software for hundreds of organisations over the last 30 years and provided direct support and training. More recently, we have implemented cloud accounting systems to recruitment agencies such as The Recruitment Business, Greycoat Lumleys and the head office of the Empresaria Group plc.

We love to plan, organise, clean-up and transfer accounting data. We believe in taking the time to understand the real needs of an organisation and set the system up in a way that will provide long term benefits.

We focus on building relationships with a small number of clients where we can provide on-going help and training and, whilst working with you, we will look for opportunities that will save you time and help you get the most out of your software.
