Digita appoints experts to support the accountancy profession

03 August 2010

EXMOUTH, August 3rd 2010 – Digita, part of the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters has announced that is has strengthened its Client Services team with new appointments from the Big 4 – a move that further enhances its support to the profession.

The announcement comes at a time when practices are preparing for the introduction of mandatory iXBRL compliance in April 2011 and are likely to take the opportunity to review their software needs and possibly switch software suppliers. Professional assistance in managing the transition and the migration of data will be an important consideration for those embarking on this course of action along with a reliable post-implementation support service.

The new members of the Client Services team, who look after both day-to-day support issues and implementation planning and consultancy, are based in Exmouth and London. Each new appointee has years of experience and breadth of professional knowledge relating to a wide range of tax and accounting issues.

The Digita emphasis on support is unique in the accountancy software market and the ratio of staff employed in Client Services is one of the highest in the industry. The company currently employs 16 support staff – out of a total staff of 100 and 14 specialist software testers to ensure that software is thoroughly tested before it is shipped.

Jerry Rihll, managing director, Digita commented:

"Accountants like dealing with fellow qualified professionals and the work of the Client Services team sets the standard by which our customers judge us. Our aim is to employ the highest calibre of staff who through working within the industry really do understand the issues affecting accountants."

One practice that migrated to Digita has only positive comments to make about the migration experience and the Client Services team. Peter Boddis, IT partner, Thompson Jones LLP said:

"Digita reassured us that they had the experience to manage the change and the migration of data professionally and that turned out to be the case. The change-over was quick and it only took a day to convert the data and it was simple and straightforward."

Digita applications are used by a whole range of companies, from the sole practitioner to the multinational corporation.
