IT Services for Accountancy Practices

Established in 1994, Connexion Ltd provides IT consultancy, IT services and IT support to mid-size accountancy practices throughout the UK. Our focus is on delivering IT solutions that create real value to our clients' firms.

We understand the time pressures that accountants face, working in a deadline driven environment, and the need to maximise productivity and efficiency. As such we work with accountancy firms to leverage technology in a way that will enhance their business, whilst carefully managing the risks around issues such as cyber security, data protection and GDPR.

As specialists in working in highly regulated sectors, we fully understand the compliance challenges that accountants face with regulatory pressures, changes to taxation rules, the imminent arrival of the GDPR, and far-reaching initiatives like MTD. Many of the accountants we work with are also looking to transform their firms from compliance-based task delivery, to providing more advisory services.

Effective use of technology plays a key part in addressing all of these challenges and Connexion work closely with Senior Partners and Directors at accountancy practices to help them leverage the many commercial benefits of technology to enhance their practice, whilst also implementing the stringent controls needed to mitigate the risks around issues such as cyber security, client confidentiality, data protection and GDPR compliance.

Working closely with our customers’ in-house IT Managers, our structured and managed approach to delivering IT is paramount in ensuring our clients can maximise the business advantages technology can offer them, whilst minimising their risks.

Understanding your firm’s objectives is always our first priority, as we believe the effectiveness of your IT should be clearly measurable and aligned with your business goals. As such, we consult on a wide range of issues such as:

  • Providing consultancy and practical solutions for GDPR compliance and data protection for accountancy practices.
  • Delivering secure and compliant remote working solutions, not just for your accountancy software, but for all your firm’s software applications and data, ensuring your fee earners can maximise their productivity and efficiency. Our solutions include managing the risks around mobile devices and the associated data protection and confidentiality threats.
  • Assisting accountancy firms in reducing their risk of becoming targets of cyber-crime, including guiding practices through Cyber Essentials accreditation and carrying out one-off or continuous cyber vulnerability scans.
  • Improving accountancy firms’ productivity by integrating separate systems/processes and creating powerful workflow applications.
  • Designing and implementing appropriate levels of resilience, backup and disaster recovery to ensure your firm’s critical business functions can operate at all times, thus ensuring that efficiency and billable hours are not impacted by IT failures or cyber threats such as ransomware.
  • Providing insightful business intelligence to Senior Partners and Directors to provide meaningful and understandable measurement of business KPIs.
