What are Accountants looking for?
Accountants have traditionally been highly dependent on paper. And they are becoming increasingly aware of the high costs of managing paper-based files and the limitations associated with the processing inefficiencies. In addition email has become the communication tool of choice and it is extremely inefficient to print off all emails to keep a client file up to date. Practice Management, Tax Software and Accounting Systems are utilised to generate client documents and in many cases duplicate documents are created for filing purposes. And there are numerous documents stored on network drives which need access and filing too. This all adds up to having to support a variety of documents in various locations, with inherent duplication, security, access and inefficiency issues.
Accountants are now looking at solutions to increase their productivity and efficiency by reducing their dependence on the paper store and by maintaining a single storage environment for all client information in all formats. In addition information needs to be available both locally and remotely, and access to the information needs to be provided when visiting clients.
