Clean sweep as entire Digita range gains accreditation from Microsoft

24 October 2005

Just one month after becoming the first accountancy software developer to have all of its core practice products built on Microsoft SQL, Digita has become the first in the sector to have all its products accredited by Microsoft for Windows XP.

The clean sweep follows the accreditation of Digita’s company secretarial software CoSec Pro which now joins Digita Accounts Production, Digita Business Tax, Digita Corporate Tax and Digita Personal Tax with the ultimate Microsoft recognition and the right to use the ‘Windows XP’ logo on its products.

Microsoft advises that for the best Windows experience users should look for products that carry the Designed for Windows XP accreditation as this identifies products that have been developed to meet Microsoft's rigorous quality standards.

Digita is the only software supplier to the profession to receive these accolades from Microsoft.

Jerry Rihll, Digita Managing Director, explained why Digita considers Microsoft accreditation to be so important:

"Digita has a unique relationship with Microsoft in that we perform bespoke development for MSN and the Microsoft Office Group. Consequently, we are much closer both technically and strategically and this gives us a huge advantage in developing our solutions for the profession."

"This accreditation is a test of quality, providing accountants with the reassurance that Digita software has been independently tested by Microsoft. The accreditation is a source of great comfort to practitioners and businesses alike."

Microsoft UK Managing Director Alistair Baker said

"Microsoft's partners are critical to our continued success. For many parts of our business they represent us within customer interactions and are inextricably linked to the perception of Microsoft amongst businesses using our software and solutions. The work that Digita has been doing with Microsoft is a further example of how much we value our relationship."
