Firm Operations Series: Managing Information Technology in Accounting Firms.

In a recent survey, almost 70% of firms cited keeping up with technology as a top challenge. Unfortunately, firms that don’t maintain up-to-date technology often find themselves struggling to compete with firms that do. Part one of our Firm Operations Series, this session will cover information technology topics, including:

  • Security – Practical tips for keeping your client and firm data safe
  • Business Intelligence – Useful examples of reporting tools and processes
  • Technology Planning – Real-world advice for using technology to spur growth and transformation

Improving firm operations can help firms grow profits and add value to client relationships. Don’t overlook this critical component of your firm’s well-being.
