The future of accountancy is in the cloud – Armstrong Watson brings the future to Carlisle

Armstrong Watson’s ‘Xero Roadshow’ brings the future of accounting to Carlisle business owners in a specially crafted event held at Carlisle Archive Centre on Wednesday 19 June at 8.30am. Places for business owners are free but limited.

The benefits of cloud accountancy packages have long been recognised but many business owners are still unsure. The roadshow aims to demonstrate the many business benefits of the software such as being able to access to their accounting information from anywhere at any time, even via a smartphone, and will include a presentation from a business who made the switch from spreadsheets to Xero last year. This gives attendees the chance to gain real feedback from a business owner, and to see for themselves how Xero can streamline running the financial side of their business.

Armstrong Watson has spent the last 12 months reviewing the latest cloud accounting providers. After a great deal of research they were left in no doubt that Xero accounting software was the right product for clients ready to make the switch from desktop to cloud accounting.

Grant Smith, Partner at Armstrong Watson commented:
‘Because Xero is online we can better connect with our clients, Xero is a single ledger platform where both accountant and client can access the accounts at the same time therefore enabling us to offer our clients advice using up to the minute information. The clients who have switched to Xero are seeing the benefits of this state of the art software immediately.’

Armstrong Watson is the only Gold Certified Xero Partner in Cumbria. This high accolade demonstrates the level of knowledge and understanding the firm has of the software, and tells business owners that they can be sure of their experience and expertise in making the switch to Xero.

Grant Smith commented:
‘The roadshow on 19 June will give local businesses the chance to see the software and its benefits first hand, and also allow them to ask any questions they might have. Places for business owners are free but limited and we’re expecting a lot of interest so my advice would be to book as soon as possible.’
