Titan Partners leads the accounting sector to the cloud
While the cloud accounting software category flourishes, accounting firms have been slow to adopt cloud technology in their own businesses, with most still favouring on-premise servers. Sydney-based accounting firm, Titan Partners, is breaking this trend and has partnered with ITonCloud to run its IT completely from the cloud.
Titan Partners is running its whole business using ITonCloud’s proven cloud desktop platform. Programs for email, data, practice management, business applications and all client accounting software all effortlessly integrate and are easily accessed in the cloud using a web browser.
ITonCloud CEO, Andrew Tucker, said, “By using our cloud desktop platform Titan Partners’ employees can access their desktops and applications from any internet-enabled computer or mobile device with absolute security and speed. Titan Partners does not have to worry about any upgrades, maintenance or even backups, it’s all done automatically without any downtime for the users.”
“The number one concern we find accounting firms have about using cloud technology is migration and the potential disruption to their business. Because of the amount of data they store and the complexity of different accounting software applications, and their various versions, the IT environment for accounting firms is intricate.”
“To manage this complexity ITonCloud has developed a unique methodology that allows us to do the implementations and integration of these applications quickly and easily,” added Mr Tucker.
Shane McLauchlan, General Manager at Titan Partners said, “Titan Partners have long realised the benefits of a cloud desktop solution. Our staff enjoy the seamless experience between working both in and away from the office and we do not have to worry about the responsibility of maintaining physical IT infrastructure. We recently went to market seeking an organisation with the expertise to continue our IT strategy, the IT on Cloud desktop solution was the natural choice.”
“Once we made the decision, the transition process was very smooth. ITonCloud took the time to work through the integration process so on go-live day everything was 100 per cent up and running,” added Mr McLauchlan.
Mr Tucker added, “There is a growing interest in having your complete IT environment, including all desktop applications, in the cloud. Most businesses already use some type of cloud-based software or platform, such as banking, file sharing, and CRM and communication tools.”
“The next logical step is the move away from on-premise servers, and the cost and maintenance that comes with them, to having your desktop and applications in the cloud, all regularly updated, backed up and available to use whenever and wherever you need,” said Mr Tucker.
