Accountancy-based business services group Tenon launched its technology healthcheck last week, and outlined the growing link between accountancy and technology, writes Alex Miller.
The Tenon Technology Solutions subsidiary has launched the seven-point plan to assess company IT systems. It follows the group’s #9m acquisition of the Windsor-based firm Williams Allan last November.
Tenon technology solutions managing director David Rankin, said: ‘Accountants are the key deliverer of software and it is becoming crucial firms help businesses to grow by guiding them through the dos and don’ts.’
It is understood that the Tenon arm will be based on the formula used by WA before the acquisition, allowing Tenon to strengthen its position in the outsourcing, financial services and information technology consultancy fields.
The firm also suggested it was looking at further deals to sell additional software alongside and Great Plains technology.
Rankin added: ‘We are looking to expand the business rapidly and have launched technology representatives in all regions of the UK.’
