When you’re running an accounting firm you need the right technological equipment for your needs. Before you purchase any equipment you need to ask yourself if the staff will be working from the office or if they’ll be working remotely. If they’re working in the office then you will need computers – desktops or laptops that can supported software updates for at least five years. If on the other hand they are working remotely then you’ll need to make a decision on if you will supply your accountants and support staff with computers or if they’ll supply their own. If they supply their own then you’ll need to ensure that each computer used by one of your accounting firm staff is suitable for your requirements that that it is capable of supporting the software you need.
You will also need to ensure the computers have adequate security. When dealing with sensitive client information the last thing you want is for someone to gain access to your information and use it maliciously. It is therefore important that all of your staff, whether working remotely or from the office know what steps they need to take to ensure their systems are secure and won’t be compromised. Urban IT services has the ability to recommend the best security software. Before we recommend any software we take the time to get to know your business, so you can be assured that you are getting a personalised service specific to your individual company requirements and will be protected. It’s extremely important that your security systems are stable because without them your entire business could be compromised. Just as you wouldn’t leave your car parked on the street without locking it first, you should never leave your IT infrastructure without adequate security in place. Losing your data is bad enough in itself but whenever there is a data breach because of weak security you are also risking your business reputation and that can take months, if not years to return to the levels it was at before the breach. A prime example is Facebook when they had customers’ data breached.
In addition to security software, Urban IT services is proficient in other software specific to accountants. We work with all the major accounting software programs and we can also assist with ones that aren’t well-known so you wont need to spend hours, weeks and months searching for the right software or the right IT support company to help you with your software management because we can do it for you. When we say we will do it all for you we mean that we will help you choose the right security software and then if you need assistance with the installation we can do that for you too. Some IT companies only help clients with installing the software but we believe that customer service doesn’t stop at the end of the installation so if you need any post installation assistance we are keen to help.
