TechnologyThe secret of success?

The secret of success?

I was recently asked what can technology do to make life easier for accountants?

Momentarily I was stumped. There are many upgrades in the pipeline; online and remote working capabilities; technologies that use less energy but run twice as fast; even technology which is able to calculate carbon emissions or VAT payments.

But then it suddenly dawned on me…… how about technology that just worked!

Accountants, and the public at large, have consistently complained the technology they have is not compatable with other programmes, or is slower than expected ,or is too complex, or just doesn’t work the way they thought it would.

Technology companies take note all we want is something that does what it says on the tin.
