Top 80 accountancy firm
Goodman Jones said
it is “not possible” to work easily with international clients or keep staff
connected without the use of online accountancy software.
The firm announced it is signing up with Twinfield online accountancy
software suppliers, to “enhance” its services to clients.
Larry Phillips, managing partner at Goodman Jones, said: “We have a number of
international clients, as well as staff who are based remotely, and we can now
connect our people and our clients at anytime, from anywhere. The ease with
which this can be done is simply not possible with traditional accounting
Phillips said traditional accounting systems were “high maintenance” while
online systems require no installation from clients or the firm.
Online software significantly reduced time spent on IT maintenance and client
book-keeping management while also giving real time information, he added.
Goodman Jones, which ranked 76 on the
50 + 50 tables this year, has 14 partners and more than 70 staff.
