Founders of eaccountingplus claim it will be able to supply ‘service portals’ delivering SME-orientated information, tailored electronic newsletters and online accounting services and advice.
And co-founder and e-strategy development director Jit Karia, an ICAEW accountant who already runs his own practice – Karia Owen & Co – reckons the solution will offer smaller accountancy practices the kind of website that will rival those of large firms.
‘We are bringing powerful internet technology to small practices at a fraction of the cost paid by big firms,’ said Karia.
What’s more, eaccountingplus has said its service, which costs upwards of Pounds 6,000, allows accountants to change the content of their site without using the services of expensive developers.
Unlike many existing web building services, eaccountingplus promises to avoid using standard templates when producing websites.
‘Each site is fully customised,’ said Karia, ‘Accountants can bring in modules to shape their site to suit their client base.’
E-accounting has already attracted some 12 customers, with one site nearing completion.
