Access, the accounting software and consultancy company, has released its
FocalPoint for iPhone software which allows users to approve expenses,
timesheets and email reports via the device.
The software was launched at Softworld just weeks after Apple announced it is
to offer the iPhone on Vodafone and Orange networks.
As the first accountancy application designed for iPhone use, the FocalPoint
software can create reports as well as submit them through the phone allowing
better remote working capabilities for users.
Alistair O’Reilly, CEO of Access told Accountancy Age one of the
reasons the applications was made using Apple’s iPhone and not Blackberry was
because “you can’t really type on a Blackberry, the iPhone is much easier.”
“We tried to keep it simple and some applications work better on an iPhone”
He added: “FocalPoint for iPhone tools offer everyone within the business
at-a-glance, real-time and digestible information to improve business
performance and collaborate effectively with each other. It’s a much more
efficient way of working.”
