Accountancy Age is teaming up with award-winning software developer Validis to launch a new product designed to improve the service accountants in practice are able to offer their clients
Validis Amatino is the latest offering from Accountancy Age Professional Services, which already boasts a professional indemnity insurance product and an online software selection tool.
The web-based application allows users to automate much of the process of reviewing client accounts. It combines advanced analysis, search, process management and reporting functions designed to rapidly complete comprehensive, auditable accounts reviews.
It also enables accountants to offer more insightful graphical financial analysis of clients’ businesses that can form part of a cost-effective monthly management reporting service.
Validis Amatino also produces review working papers that show what work has been done, records reviewer’s comments and adjustments the client should be aware of.
It works with Sage Line 50, with more packages to be added. The monthly £200 fee entitles users to unlimited access to as many client company accounts as required.
Chris Poll, CEO of Validis, said: ‘We're very pleased to be bringing the benefits of Validis Amatino to Accountancy Age readers. It enables accountants to provide precisely the type of proactive reporting and advisory services that businesses now demand - not only to maximise financial control but also to satisfy the growing requirements of lenders, credit ratings agencies and insurers.’
