IT Services For Accountancy


IT Services for Accountancy

Founded in 2000, Xara Computers has built its reputation by successfully delivering modern, flexible and cost effective IT services for accountancy practices and other professional services businesses.

Our specialist knowledge of accountancy and tax software, and the modus operandi of accountancy firms, has allowed us to develop the XC360 for Accountancy private cloud platform which provides accountancy practices with a fully managed remote desktop running all their own practice software. This allows accountants to work and collaborate in real-time, from any location, using any computer, laptop or tablet.

Whilst accountants have long been embracing cloud technology to run individual accountancy applications, the XC360 takes things a step further, by delivering all the benefits of cloud computing across the whole of your practice’s IT infrastructure, serving to offer network infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and drive efficiencies in terms of both time and money.


Benefits of XC360 for Accountancy Practices

The XC360 for Accountancy drives efficiency in terms of both cost and time by:-

  • Providing a fully customised Remote Desktop with all your own practice software, email, MS Office, individual files, shared data and personal settings such as favourites, running at the same speed as if you were in the office.
  • Providing secure remote access from any location, be that home, office, client site etc.
  • Providing secure access from any device – desktop, laptop or tablet including “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) or using a computer at a client’s offices.
  • Eliminating large capital spends on IT equipment such as servers, with a cost effective monthly subscription based model.
  • Reducing costs and providing flexibility to grow with your practice as needed, ensuring you only pay for the capacity that is needed, when it is needed.
  • Allowing accountancy practices to take advantage of state-of-the-art technology, utilising enterprise grade hardware and security used by industry giants, at an affordable price point for SMB’s.
  • Ensuring all software updates such as Iris, Sage Accountants suite and many more handled for you, freeing you up to spend more time on fee-earning client work.
  • Providing complete peace of mind that back-ups, cyber security and disaster recovery are all handled to the highest standards by our team of industry specialists.
  • Allowing accountancy firms to spend far more time providing fee-earning services and value adds to their clients, rather than worrying about IT related tasks like software updates, backups, software licencing, security updates and managing in-house server equipment.
  • Providing guaranteed system reliability and performance, backed by stringent Service Level Agreements, to ensure you can work whenever and wherever you need to.


In addition, those practices looking to gain further time and cost efficiencies can also benefit from the optional additions of XC360 cloud based telephony – allowing small and medium sized accountancy practices to utilise enterprise telephony features at a fraction of the cost – and/or XC360 print management – significantly reducing ongoing printing costs.

Full training is provided on all our solutions, and expert help and advice is available at all times from our London-based helpdesk and field support team.

Unlike many cloud computing providers, XC360 for Accountancy is provided from our ISO 27001 security certified datacentres based exclusively in the UK, giving our clients the peace of mind that their confidential client data is not ever transferred to other jurisdictions.

Whether your challenges lie in harnessing modern technology to enhance your practice, improving efficiency or streamlining IT costs, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your practice’s IT requirements. Please do not hesitate to contact us on 0208 732 5656 or email enquiries@xc360.co.uk if you would like to find out more about our IT services for accountancy practices.
