At last! The long-awaited results are out of the Accountants & Technology Survey 2017. We had a fantastic response, so thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the questionnaire.

We think the results are quite revealing and there were some surprises in there too. A massive 89% of respondents said that their clients had cloud accounting systems with an equally massive 79% of accountants offering cloud accounting training. However, 73% of accountants do not cover cloud technology in their engagement letter and only 24% have all their own main software systems in the cloud. 42%, however, said they use Xero in their internal systems.

With regard to digital marketing platforms, again, an impressive 79% of respondents said they have a mobile friendly website, 94% said they use LinkedIn and only 12% use Instagram.
