For the first time accountants and clients can interact together through a document portal directly from the firm’s own app
Reckon Software, developers of Virtual Cabinet, the preferred document management & cloud portal solution of professional firms of all sizes including 30 of the top 100 UK accountancy practices, announced today an important global relationship with MyFirmsApp that is set to benefit 150,000 end users.
MyFirmsApp provides accountants with an App that becomes the interface between their firm, their contacts and the systems they use allowing the firm to improve client communication by providing useful tools such as calculators, gps mileage tracking and receipt management. The deep level of integration made possible by Reckon and MyFirmsApp joining forces is an Industry first that allows accountants to share documents more quickly and easily with their clients. Not only are clients able to look at documents on their smart phones and tablets, clients can now interact more closely with their accountants and speed up the approval process.
Virtual Cabinet provides an easily deployed solution to the challenge of new privacy-focused legislation. The portal speeds up the approval process and is used in 110 countries and over 1.5 M documents were published to the Virtual Cabinet portal during the 12 month period ending December 2015.
The announcement was made at the inaugural Reckon conference in London today and will extend to the UK, US and Australia markets. There is a great synergy between Reckon Software and MyFirms App with more than 50 years shared experience in the UK accountancy software market and shared values that put the interests of the accountancy firm, first and foremost.
Mark Woolley, Commercial Director, Reckon Software told the audience: “This is an exciting development as no other document management system has this deep integration into MyFirmsApp enabling real interaction between the accountant and their client. This is just the beginning with some exciting developments being planned.”
“Joining forces with Reckon represents a huge opportunity for MyFirmsApp as the Virtual Cabinet team has an outstanding reputation in the market for great delivery,” says Daniel Richards, Head of Sales, MyFirmsApp. “It’s a great fit with both organisations working with all sizes of firm, from the smallest up to the largest.”
