Farnell Clarke Chartered Certified Accountants

KashFlow online accounting is “a competitive differentiator” for Farnell Clarke

Lawrence & Co is active in building its client base and has recently drawn on IRIS for website creation and maintenance services. Partner Jay Chatwani explains why, with so many web service providers targeting the accountancy market, Lawrence & Co picked IRIS OpenWebsite. “After ten years, our website was looking rather tired and we decided to embark on a radical refresh. Web technology had moved on and so had our business. We were brimming with ideas, but when we discussed them with our website provider, they said ‘No’. What we wanted was apparently too technically challenging for them. It was a similar story with other potential providers. However, when we contacted IRIS, we received a positive response; their can-do attitude was a great start to the relationship!”

Farnell Clarke has offered its clients the KashFlow online accounting solution since 2009.

Explaining the background, Will says, “The old model of working with clients is such a painful process, with them supplying records on a memory stick, and the issue of different software versions. I wanted us to be able to access clients’ records all year round, not just when an HMRC deadline looms. I knew that giving both parties a shared view, with us both working to a single ledger system would help us to support our clients. I knew it would be better for clients too.”
