Now in its third year, the highly sought after Best Use of Internet: Practice
award has been won by Baker Tilly.
The mid-tier accountancy firm’s Revas service picked up the title following a
dominant performance by rival Goodman Jones in previous years.
The accountancy firm developed its online software service, which has
combined Software-as-a-Service methodology with the skills and resources
available to a major firm. It sought to deliver a solution that is best
described as a software-enabled service.
Clients using Revas could typically expect to see cost savings of between 15%
The judges said Baker Tilly had ‘done what others have only talked about’. The
site included a variety of online services such as accounting, payroll, payments
and billing, corporate secretariat and composite reporting.
Another judge said ‘it was an outstanding entry, it uses established
technology very nicely, it does something people want.’
The firm said it worked closely with clients and software providers to
implement an application and reporting system that could deliver flexibility and
efficiency gains, as well as offer new ways of working within the profession.
The judges added: ‘Its success can be measured by its incredible sales
growth.’ Revas, which has only been in existence for two years, started to make
a profit just 12 months after it was made available and is now growing at a rate
of 80% per annum.
The firm battled against stiff competition in a shortlist of Danbro, Goodman
Jones and SJD Accountancy.
