Sinclair Scott

The company

Dedicated to providing a first class service for their clients, Sinclair Scott is a firm of 4 partners and 13 staff, based in Ayr, Scotland. The company was created following the merger of established firms Sinclair Maclean, formed in 2000, and Alfred T Scott, formed in 1901.

The problem

Initially Sinclair Maclean only used IRIS Accounts and Tax software as Andrew freely admits “At the time we thought we weren’t a big enough firm to use IRIS Practice Management. We used a system of spreadsheets to list the jobs as they came in and this worked reasonably well.” However, things changed when Andrew read an article in the IRIS newsletter in 2005, about a firm that had decided to go paperless. Andrew explains, “We were of a comparable size to the firm featured and as we were looking at a possible merger with another firm (Alfred T Scott), we knew space would become an issue. It seemed that installing IRIS Practice Management would be a natural progression.”
