Over the years we have developed a deep understanding of the technology services that are required for a successful, modern and efficient accountancy practice. With our exclusive partnerships we can provide you with access to systems to help you streamline processes and deliver an exceptional service to your clients.
Our in-house technology teams provide dedicated support and training to all franchisees and their staff. They work alongside recommended outsourced partners and software providers: Acora One, Dext, TaxCalc, Practice Ignition, Xero and QuickBooks, to help franchisees with the adoption and integration of software, as well as suggesting and sharing best practice use of the software estate to gain efficiencies where possible.
They build and maintain the TaxAssist websites, internal support website including ticket and lead management systems, and are responsible for the relationship management with our recommended IT, telephone, and software providers as well as the continuing development of our web-based systems.
