We are living and working through unprecedented times, and there’s no telling what new habits and practices will develop after the quarantines and shelter in place mandates end. At Anderson ZurMuehlen Technology Services, we like to think we’re a bit ahead of the game. Our team of professionals has worked from anywhere, at any time, from any device for years because of our custom cloud solution.
At AZ, we’re accountants at heart. Since we’ve had some practice figuring out what does and doesn’t work for a hosted cloud solution, we want to share the three elements your cloud solution needs for your firm.
1. Mobility is Key.
Pandemics aside, more and more professionals are working from out of the office. A hosting platform that works virtually anywhere there’s a Wi-Fi connection is a crucial element of our customized solutions. Some days your CPAs will want to work from Starbucks to get out of the office and shake things up. On other days there may not be a choice to work anywhere but home. Wherever your employees are, giving them the flexibility to be mobile and productive is a huge win for your firm and, ultimately, your clients.
2. Security is Non-negotiable.
Security is a big deal in the accounting world. One breach of your firm’s client information could mean years of damaged trust and recovery. Our cloud solution is protected by extremely knowledgeable professionals, round-the-clock maintenance, and immediate alerts if your information is compromised. With your employees working mobile, they have to be able to do so without jeopardizing your firm. We make that possible.
3. High Performance is Essential.
No one likes a slow internet connection. We know how frustrating it can be to work on outdated equipment. Our systems are constantly updated, ensuring our cloud platform performs, regardless of the computer the user is using. Our standard is not just good performance. Our goal is great performance.
Working from home isn’t a question of if anymore and there’s no telling what the work environment will look like after COVID-19 has subsided. Our team will guide you in designing a mobile, secure, high-performance environment that works for your firm and meets best practices.
We are passionate about what we do and how we do it. We look forward to spending some time talking about partnering with your firm and building a successful partnership around technology.
