The Accountancy revolution (2 mins)

Alexander Scott are revolutionising their practice by moving all of their clients to Sage One Accounting and Sage One Payroll.

UK-based accountancy firm Alexander Scott Limited, has selected Sage One Accounting and Sage One Payroll for its 100 clients. The firm, which provides the whole spectrum of accountancy and bookkeeping services to SMEs, prides itself on giving the personal-touch to its valued customers.

With clients becoming more and more tech savvy, Alexander Scott set about evaluating accounting software in order to give its customers the opportunity to benefit from the increased accessibility, visibility and improved collaboration that cloud technology provides.

The firm undertook a thorough evaluation of software solutions from a number of providers over the course of the last year, including Xero, Just Accounts and KashFlow. However, they selected Sage for its market leading knowledge and experience across core accountancy products and solutions.

Sage One is the next step for us in providing a high level of service and continuing to add value to our customers, so we ourselves can ensure we remain competitive and grow organically.

Once the migration to Sage One is complete, Alexander Scott’s clients will have full visibility into their accounts and will be able to interact with their individual accountant online. They will be able to access details anywhere, anytime using their laptop, mobile or tablet device and benefit from the software’s ability to keep businesses compliant and up-to-date with the latest legislation for accounts and payroll, whether its changes to VAT or Pensions Auto-Enrolment for example.

Richard Delaney, Director of Alexander Scott Limited, explained “We want our clients to reap the many benefits of cloud technology; including feeling more in control of their accounting and bookkeeping, which is vital for business health. Sage One is the next step for us in providing a high level of service and continuing to add value to our customers, so we ourselves can ensure we remain competitive and grow organically.”

Kevin Patel, Sage Online Development Manager added “From my first conversation with Richard, I realised that Alexander Scott is a forward thinking practice that is ready to embrace advanced technology. It was obvious that Sage One Accounting & Sage One Payroll were the ideal products to meet their practice and client’s needs. Through this process, I have been lucky to build a fantastic relationship with everyone at Alexander Scott and I am looking forward to going on this journey with them. It will be great to catch up to hear first-hand how Sage One has transformed the way their practice works and the lives of their clients.”
