ACCOUNTANCY software group Reckon has announced a global partnership with MyFirmsApp, a move it claims that will “help deliver closer interaction between accountants and their clients”.
MyFirmsApp provides accountants with an application that becomes the interface between their firm and their contacts, allowing the firm to improve client communication by providing useful tools such as calculators, gps mileage tracking and receipt management.
The partnership with Reckon Software will allow MyFirms customers to share documents more quickly and easily with their clients.
Clients will be able to look at documents on their smart phones and tablets, clients can now interact more closely with their accountants and speed up the approval process.
The announcement was made at the inaugural Reckon conference in London on 23 June and the partnership will extend to the UK, US and Australia markets.
Mark Woolley, commercial director, Reckon Software told the audience: “This is an exciting development as no other document management system has this deep integration into MyFirmsApp, enabling real interaction between the accountant and their client.
“Joining forces with Reckon represents a huge opportunity for MyFirmsApp as the Virtual Cabinet team has an outstanding reputation in the market for great delivery,” says Daniel Richards, Head of Sales, MyFirmsApp. “It’s a great fit with both organisations working with all sizes of firm, from the smallest up to the largest.”
