We Speak Accounting and Tax
For small and medium-sized accounting/tax firms, frequent hardware upgrades are a perennial challenge. As the software become more and more powerful, they get resource-hungry and need greater processing capabilities to perform the best; upgrading the hardware once in a year to keep up is just not sufficient anymore. Besides, there is quite a bit of maintenance to take care of, in the form of installing updates, service packs, and patches to the Operating System on a regular basis. Equally important, the data/information across the CPAs’ PCs/laptops, the juniors’ desktops, the bookkeepers’ home computers etc. has to be kept in sync, updated, and backed up for disaster recovery. A hard disk crash would mean loss of invaluable data and several man-hours of efforts. And of course, there is the tax season demand for short-term resources and the temporary desktops that need to be procured, keeping the security and reliability considerations foremost in mind. Along with the computers come the need for additional workstations and office space.
Here is where Apps4Rent provides a single, meet-all-needs solution.
