IT Services for Accountancy Firms
Our technology consulting services embed best practice throughout the IT system and provide full documentation to create a roadmap for your IT infrastructure. We offer the choice of local technology platforms, cloud-based hosted platforms or hybrid solutions. Our hosted desktop platform is relied on by many accounting firms to give them the flexibility to serve their clients more efficiently. Our in-depth knowledge of accounting systems and practices ensures rapid issue resolution and close alignment of the IT system with the business needs. Other managed services include support and remote assistance, data security and web development packages that can include hosting and maintenance.
Hosted desktop for accountants
Adopting a hosted desktop platform allows accountants to work seamlessly wherever business takes them. Hosted desktop solutions provide secure, cloud-based technology that can be accessed anywhere, any time, via an internet connection. Whether you need to be in another office, client site, or working from home, you have the flexibility to work from wherever your business requires. Staff can work offsite, easily gaining access to their systems using their regular login process. Productivity is increased as employees no longer need to be restricted to a single office desk or device. Hosted desktop helps to establish best practice in data management, ensuring data security standards as well as regulatory compliance requirements are met. We understand and have expertise in all of the standard accounting systems such as Sage, Xero, IRIS, CCH, and can support your users wherever they may be.
In an age of increasing cyber threat and more rigorous data protection legislation, you need to be able to trust your IT partner to look after your valuable business assets. HW Technology sets the highest standards in data security and is ISO27001 certified. This standard provides assurance that confidential records and business data are protected and risks are minimised.
We work with clients to create a highly secure, easy to adopt, data security strategy that works for their business to ensure GDPR and ICAEW compliance, as well as reassurance that valuable technology assets are kept secure
