Case Study - Sterlings

"...When we get an update from other software suppliers, it fills us with fear. Every time we install updates from them there are problems, once it took our entire network out for two days. When we get an update from Digita we get excited as we have never had any problems and we always look forward to seeing and using the new features"

Sterlings and Software
"We are looking for an all-encompassing Practice Management software that delivers in every practice area including time and fees, tax, corporation tax, accounts production and company secretarial.

"Currently we use a variety of suppliers. We are very happy with Digita who supply Personal and Business Tax, Company Secretarial and Digita's Dividend Data Feed.

"We are not so happy with our other suppliers and their Practice Management software. There always seems to be one problem or another.

"When we get an update from other software suppliers, it fills us with fear. Every time we install updates from them there are problems, once it took our entire network out for two days. When we get an update from Digita we get excited as we have never had any problems and we always look forward to seeing and using the new features."

"We want to provide the very best service to our clients so it's worth waiting for the software that will fulfil our needs."

"It's truly a pleasure to deal with Digita. When you need to ask a question, you get an immediate response."

"As far as I'm concerned, what sets them apart from the rest is that we trust in and believe what Digita tell us. We simply don't have that faith in other suppliers."

"When I read the glowing reports some other practitioners give about their software and their suppliers, I feel that the partners concerned can't be actively involved in using these products as they don't appear to know what they are talking about - and I am being very truthful here."
