Digital automation requires firms to have the right foundations
Digital automation is transforming accountancy, but firms need to put the right foundations in place first writes Mike Mulholland, Head of Services and Solutions at Brother UK. The latest print and scan solutions can deliver seamless integration between paper-based and digital information, he writes, making it easier for accountants that have yet to go fully digital to benefit from some of the latest digital innovations. Systems that scan documents efficiently and in high volumes can allow those practices that still receive a lot of client information in hard-copy form, to harness the power of digital document management and automation. Further, the need to work with the documentation formats being used by clients also means that printing is set to be an essential function for accountants for the foreseeable future, requiring an efficient and reliable solution such as a managed print service.
