Accounting is transforming.
Let's take a look
Technology is driving change in client services and working practices. Opening up new opportunities. Here we share views and advice on how to respond.
“Accounting is in the middle of a major shift in purpose, services and business model. Technology is playing a foundational role in supporting firms as they change and look to turn transformation into business opportunity. We call this the era of connected accounting.”

The future of accounting is connected
Changing client expectations and technology are transforming the traditional services of the accounting profession. Clients want much more than annual compliance reporting from their accountant.
Core accounting services need to be fast and efficient. Advisory needs to be based on reliable data and insights. Automation needs to free up resources to dedicate to clients and the delivery of advisory services. We call this future connected accounting.
