Discover cloud for accountants at IRIS World
The accountancy market is constantly evolving, with legislative, technological and businesses changes happening more and more frequently. To help you and your practice stay up to date, we are holding our annual IRIS World conference throughout October. One of the key topics to be featured in this year’s IRIS World is cloud computing, and the benefits this new technology can bring to your organisation and your clients.
Even with the best software in the world, there are a whole host of factors that can come into play which are completely out of your control. Sudden weather changes or natural disasters can leave you unable to get to your office. Hardware can be stolen or damaged, leaving vital data in the wrong hands or irretrievable. These scenarios become a distant memory when you move your software away from your business premises, adopting cloud technology will become part of your disaster recovery plans.
Cloud can help you increase your practice efficiency and productivity. Imagine being able to access critical software systems at anywhere and from any location. With a solution that is easily accessible online, you’re no longer restricted to working from the office. You can be just as productive as you would be from behind your desk while you’re at home, with a client or on the road.
Using the cloud can also bring you much closer to your clients, by eliminating the time taken to exchange and approve documents. With cloud solutions you can simply upload your files to a secure online server where your clients can access them instantly, saving the time and expense of printing and posting out paper copies of accounts and tax returns, and avoid the security risks of sending confidential information by email.
We spoke in a previous blog post about how cloud technology is shaking up the audit market by increasing the level of competition in the market. But how exactly can arriving on an audit site with no more than a tablet or laptop allow you to still conduct a full and efficient audit? Our “Transform auditing with the cloud” session at IRIS World will enable you to understand and make the most of this new opportunity. Additional choices of cloud sessions to attend include: Cloud computing for accountants, Leveraging the benefits of cloud alongside desktop applications and revolutionise the client accountant relationship with cloud bookkeeping.
We have a range of other sessions happening throughout the conference, which you can find out more about by registering your interest for IRIS World. To find out more or to book your free place, visit the IRIS World page.
