For accounting and CPA firms, time is money. Every hour spent dealing with recurring IT issues, data loss, security breaches, and so on, is billable time wasted. The challenges facing your industry today are unique, and so is the way you do business. Your IT solution should meet your company’s current and future needs while safeguarding client data and adhering to industry compliance standards every step of the way.
When we talk to accounting and CPA firms, we often find that their technology and business pains can be traced back to a poor IT strategy that fails to address IT security and future business objectives. This lack of planning gets in the way of their success, maybe not in the beginning, but eventually. Whether productivity is stalled by a large-scale data breach, or employees constantly facing small, recurring issues that never seem to get fixed, lost time is lost opportunity.
Today, a positive technology experience is key to creating a productive and motivating work environment for employees—that’s where outsourcing your IT can help. When your team has the right tools and knows how to make the best use of their technology, they can work together to deliver a quality customer experience and promote trust across the organization and with those it serves.
Focus on Improving Your Business, Not Your IT
You can’t be an expert in everything. But, you are the expert in your business, its operations, and the challenges employees face as they work to meet their goals. IT Strategy and IT Security are two components of the Aldridge Framework for Successful IT Operations. While they are essentials to maximizing the value of your technology investment and human capital while minimizing business risk, they cannot stand alone.
