Wireless accountancy towards norm

A report by the Centre for Future Studies reveals a growing trend of wireless
networks alongside new broadband and mobile technology, creating a rise of the
‘virtual’ office.

The study reveals 63% of Britain’s north-east based SMEs now offer flexible
working opportunities, including accountancy jobs, involving elements of home
working, according to Witan Jardine.

Witan Jardine cites Ian Byron, IT provider Powerdial Systems sales director,
who says new technology is gradually adapting working practice to place less
importance on the office.

‘If you have a mobile phone in one hand and a computer in another, it doesn’t
matter where your desk is,’ he said. ‘But you do need decent bandwidth to enable
certain software systems to run effectively.’
