IT Services for Accountants
IT Services in the Accounting Field
Accounting is a profession that requires preservation of lots of financial information pertaining to many businesses and individuals. Handling all of these financial documents comes with the responsibility of keeping them safe and organized. Financial accountants, tax accountants, and even managerial accounting all benefit from managed IT services.
KCM Technology has provided managed IT services to the field of accounting, and have designed networks suited to the needs of the perspective client. For large and small, the most common denominator between them is the need for simple file sharing and disaster recovery planning. Instant access to all business information and financial documentation is easily achievable with a structured domain environment with a file server. This alleviates problems with files sharing between peers on a network, and provides an environment welcoming to document scanning and storage.
One of the most important considerations when looking for IT services is identifying your goals as a business, and problems that it currently faces. We at KCM believe that the first priority is to establish a solid infrastructure in the IT security with firewalls, backup retention policies, and recovery plans with redundancies. Once this is established, we can then begin to build on that backbone, and custom configure all of the nuances of your network.

Software for Accountants
Depending on the niche of accounting your business focuses on, we are flexible in supporting a multitude of software. Here are some of the software titles we have worked with and have experience with:
QuickBooks Enterprise (On-Prem)
QuickBooks Online (Cloud)
Cloud services vs. on-prem services are a major discussion point in all of our consultations. The ease of access to cloud software from anywhere is attractive for more remote environments, however on-prem servers are just as reliable and downtime can be easily controlled. KCM is not partial to either service form, and will work with your business to accommodate whatever existing software you may have.
