The Fastest-Growing Top 20 Firm Chooses Digita

02 March 2006

Bentley Jennison, the UK’s fastest growing Top 20 firm has chosen Digita to supply its software.

As a result of the firm’s ongoing programme of acquisitions and mergers, several IT systems were simultaneously in use and there was a need to harmonise and integrate IT operations.

Following a software market assessment in early 2004, a detailed review of Digita began six months later, with the Board confirming Digita as their chosen supplier in December 2004. Digita software was chosen for its ease of use, functionality and technical competency.

Bentley Jennison is deploying Digita accounts, company secretarial, personal tax, business tax and corporation tax software in their offices throughout the country. This is being conducted in parallel with a customised Digita training programme.

Established in 1984, Bentley Jennison is a national accountancy practice offering accounting and business advisory services to a range of organisations across the public and private sector. With an ongoing programme of acquisitions and mergers, the firm has grown considerably in recent years and now has 13 offices, 69 partners and 950 staff.

David Bentley, Senior Partner at Bentley Jennison, said:

"Our priorities are always client care and the quality of service we deliver. Having made the decision to switch to Digita on such a scale, it was essential that it not only provided the very best in terms of functionality and scalable performance, but that the change was as seamless as possible.

"We now have a technological edge and we are very happy with the outcome. By making this considerable investment we have greatly added to the value of the services we offer and established a strong relationship with a software supplier that is responsive to our needs."

Jerry Rihll, Digita Director said:

"The key to introducing wholesale change in software has been detailed consultation, knowing exactly what the practice wants to achieve and working together to produce it.

"Digita software is very intuitive; it looks like Microsoft® Office and is accredited by Microsoft® and the ICAEW. Consequently, the training and
roll-out process was fast and efficient.

"The consultation process has also had mutual benefits. Bentley Jennison has been a catalyst to fast-track a whole range of innovative developments in our software."
