Titan Partners and the Sydney accounting firm's tech partner plan bring adaptable cloud technology to the old-tech accounting industry. With its long-time tech partner ITonCloud, the firm will introduce cloud computing and storage technologies to interested firms.
The accounting firm attests to ITonCloud's development efficiency as Titan Partners runs ITonCloud's email, data, practice management, and client accounting software. They also run all the features of its cloud desktop platform.
According to ITonCloud CEO Andrew Tucker:
"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." He added, "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."
Educational institutions such as the University of Georgia are using cloud technologies for keeping records from student grades to fees and payrolls. Online Athens reports that the university finds cloud technology useful for data storage precision and security.
ITonCloud's CEO highlighted that accounting firms often have an issue with data migration causing huge setbacks and disruption to businesses. Cloud technologies handle vast amounts of information accessible through uniform programs that function in different platforms.
The Sydney-based firm's General Manger Shane MacLauchlan said cloud desktops have a huge advantage, one being the "seamless experience of working both in and away from the office" without the expenses of IT infrastructure - a major issue for many accounting firms worldwide. He iterated Titan Partners' experience with ITonCloud's technology, saying "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."
He went on to suggest that the technology is necessary for the future of accounting. "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," Titan Partners General Manager concluded.
