Client integration improves as accounting technology evolves

11 Apr 11

Businesses throughout New Zealand now have access to powerful accounting software over the internet, following Reckon Limited’s release of a new website that completes the launch phase of Reckon Online – QuickBooks software hosted over the internet, letting you access it anywhere and anytime you need to.


Online accounting is growing in popularity across the globe as accountants and business owners recognise the value in having an online system that offers greater flexibility to run their business and support clients.


Reckon Online has attracted thousands of users already in a very short history. While many online accounting solutions support only very basic functionality, the Reckon Online application is a comprehensive product.


Based on the top of the line QuickBooks Enterprise, the feature-rich software includes, multi-currency, advanced inventory management, multi-company reporting, customised reporting, advanced user based security and virtually unlimited list lengths making it suitable for both small and large businesses. An added bonus is that it looks, feels and functions in exactly the same way as the desktop product, so users of Reckon’s existing QuickBooks products do not have a new product to learn or train staff in.


"The legendary ease of use and functionality, familiar to thousands of QuickBooks users, accountants and bookkeepers in New Zealand, is identical in the online version. Modern business professionals looking for a world-class online accounting system will be impressed by the sophisticated capability and user friendliness,” says Reckon’s Business Division CEO Gavin Dixon.


Apart from convenience, benefits of moving online include eliminating the need to manage software upgrades; having only one copy of the ledger for better collaboration between accountants and clients; reduced IT infrastructure burden; and advanced security.


Reckon has made a large investment in state-of-the-art data security that complies with New Zealand privacy and security laws. Files are automatically backed up to two mirrored servers in Australian locations. And, uniquely, Reckon Online allows users to also save company data files to a local hard drive or network drive for added peace of mind.


Members who are Reckon Accredited Consultants or Professional Partners receive a free Reckon Online account that can, with approval, provide instant access to client’s Reckon Online data files. This removes the hassle of transferring information between accountant and client while reducing the time involved to complete work at the same time.
