PKF Francis Clark teams up with Exact to provide industry-specific business software to clients in wholesale & distribution, manufacturing and professional services sectors
Exact provides leading accountancy firm with cloud-based tools to streamline operations, increase client insight and reduce admin time
26 June 2017 – London, UK – Exact, a leading provider of business software, has been selected by PKF Francis Clark, the largest independent accountancy firm in south west England, to provide a comprehensive portfolio of industry specific software, allowing it to collaborate, optimise and streamline client processes across the wholesale & distribution, manufacturing and professional service sectors. As PKF Francis Clark looks to provide tailored business services to clients within these sectors, Exact for Accountancy will offer a single view of client information in one cloud-based dataset. This will enable PKF Francis Clark to provide in-depth business advisory services as well as tools to help complement and automate client workflows.
With the increasing availability of cheap online tools, accountants need to offer more than traditional accounting tools if they are to remain competitive. By enabling PKF Francis Clark to integrate seamlessly with clients’ information streams, Exact will help the firm to spot issues early and provide perceptive advice on how to remedy them. It will also be able to use this data to provide front-of-house functionality to help clients in a range of sectors grow their business, evolving its role to a trusted line-of-business advisor.
PKF Francis Clark recognised that Exact’s end-to-end solution provides the ability to achieve this vision without the need for multiple apps and solutions. With Exact’s scalable platform in place, PKF Francis Clark was able to reduce the complexity of its systems as well as achieving a large reduction in admin time previously spent on learning multiple software packages to cover clients in different sectors.
“Exact’s approach to digitisation and its support levels have delighted our customers over the introduction period, and we’re confident that with Exact’s support we’ll be able to grow our ability to provide them with top-flight business advice,” said Martin Atkins, partner at PKF Francis Clark. “Not only that, but for the level of cover it provides, Exact is significantly more cost-effective than comparable providers in the market. Exact’s live data and integrated systems mean that we can bring clients in manufacturing, wholesale and distribution, professional services and beyond up to the next level of efficiency and insight.”
“We’re very excited to begin this project with PKF Francis Clark,” said Gavin Fell, general manager UK at Exact. “We look forward to working closely with them over the coming months to help provide the best possible service to their clients, and drive new efficiencies and intelligence within the business.”
