Technology is at the heart of the best accountancy practices. Without good systems and a reliable IT provider to manage them it’s hard to deliver good client service or work efficiently.
This is why it’s important to stay up to date with the latest developments. You want a toe in the water so you can keep up with the ripples of change. Blog articles by industry experts are a great way to do it, so here is a list of our top five blogs about IT in accountancy:
On top of the latest technology news, AccountingWEB has a forum for members to ask and answer tech related questions. They also have an IT library for expert guides, a Gadget Zone and an entire zone dedicated to the wonders of Excel.
AccountingToday has fewer bells and whistles than AccountingWEB but its technology section is well laid out, easy to digest and useful. If quick insight is what you’re after, AccountingToday is a great resource to tap into.
