DataTrust has been dealing with accountants since the very beginning.
For accountants, the biggest challenge can be the sheer variety of different accountancy packages out there among the customer base. They need to be able to receive the data files from these various packages and work on them.
On top of that, it can often be the case that even where you have the same package-there is incompatibility due to a difference in version.
Most accountancy software providers do now actually provide a "bureau edition" that allows the accountants convert between various version data files as required.
Equally, the same situation arises with payroll solutions - there are so many packages out there and some new versions of the various packages that this can pose its own challenges.
Online Accountancy Packages
Nowadays, most of the accountancy software houses are making online editions of their packages available. This has certainly made it much easier, from an IT perspective, to implement a solution that will support the associated requirements.
The only challenge, we find, with online accountancy packages is ensuring that a backup of same is made onto an alternative, independent system. We have heard of horror stories where an online system has gone "haywire" and the only backups available being in that online system. Not a good place to be!
Also, for accountants, the many different digital certificates there would need to have for the various online services e.g. ROS, CRO, CORE etc. can bring its own challenges.
Remote access is generally a significant consideration for accountancy practices as it is usual that they will have deployed staff onto client sites - sometimes for days on end.
Traditionally, these days onsite, site were followed by a few days, back at the office, updating their own systems, with whatever has transpired in the course of the site visit.
Secure Remote Access
With secure remote access directly from customer site, this means that this work can be done directly from the client site - cutting out unnecessary duplication and allowing that operative to spend more time dealing directly with their client.

We then backed up on tapes and CD’s but this was proving very hard in order to keep an offsite backup up to date.
