“We felt it was important to use a company with the specialist knowledge of accountancy and tax software”
Batchelor & Co. is an accountancy firm based in Cullumpton, Devon – local to the Hosted Accountants office in Taunton. Jeremy Batchelor, Managing Director joined HA in November 2013. Although it’s a relatively new working relationship, Jeremy couldn’t be happier, despite some initial reservations.
Modern and reliable backups
“Our office server, running on Microsoft SBS, at five years old was at the end of its useful life, which prompted the decision as to whether to replace, with the prospect of having to do so yet again in another five years, or go down the hosting route.” explains Jeremy. By moving to a cloud based solution the practice then had modern, reliable, and secure regular backups.
“We were initially anxious as to how well it would work, and it really does work so well, fast and trouble-free.” Jeremy Batchelor, Managing Director.
HA’s hosted solutions had many benefits for Batchelor & Co both in terms of financial and time saving.
“Software updates are all done for us, with the Digita suite in particular being previously very time consuming. Also, we no longer have any capital outlay on a new server.
HA also provide the accountancy firm with a knowledgeable and efficient support team for any issues they may incur – luckily, these are very few and far between. Jeremy says “we felt it was important to use a company with the specialist knowledge of accountancy and tax software and modes of operation rather than just a generic hosting company” .
