Online software for accountants can aid better client relations and help make your accounting service more productive.

The way accountants interact with their clients is evolving. In recent years there has been a shift from using centralised server architectures for accounts and document management, to working online via Software as a Service (SaaS) platforms (also known as cloud computing).

One of the key reasons for this shift is the fact that as businesses begin to use more software as a service working models, so accountants need to keep up with the demand for this new online way of working.

What are the client benefits of online accounts software?

With online software, interactions between you and your client can happen in real time thanks to instant messaging and electronic communications built into the service. With less time spent receiving and sending documents, communications are vastly improved.

Some businesses are lagging in the move to cloud software because outmoded, but familiar, ways of working have become ingrained in their operations. It’s up to accountants to recommend more efficient and effective ways of managing accounts to their clients.

What are the benefits to accountants?

Accountants can now manage multiple clients’ from an internet-based platform. There is greater opportunity for multi-tasking, and work processes are more streamlined, productive and efficient.

Marc O'Dwyer

After completing a Graduate program in Marketing, Marc’s impressive sales career began at Allied Irish Banks, Pitney Bowes and Panasonic where he received numerous Irish and European sales performance awards and consistently exceeded targets and expectations. In 1992, Marc’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to set up his own business, Irish International Sales (IIS). Initially, this company was a reseller for Take 5 Accounts and Payroll software. Within four years, IIS became the largest reseller of Take 5 in Ireland, acquiring four other Take 5 resellers. He also found time to set up two mobile phone shops under the Cellular World brand and a web design company offering website design services for small businesses. In 2001, he bought the majority share in a small Irish software business, Big Red Book. At that time, the company was losing money. The company became profitable within two months, and Marc then acquired a payroll company to compliment Big Red Books Accounting products. In 2003, IIS were appointed as Channel Partners with SAP for their new SME product, SAP Business One. Marc sold his Take 5 business and concentrated on developing this new market for SAP As a result, by 2007, IIS was recognised as the largest Channel Partner for SAP in EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa). In 2008, the IIS Sales Manager bought the Company from Marc in an MBO. He launched Big red cloud in June 2012, the online version of big red book, to date the company successfully converts 59% of trials into sales and the number of customers is growing rapidly.
