2. Reduce Unplanned Downtime

Whether it’s because of a natural disaster, breaking technology, or poor planning, unplanned downtime happens.

With Custom Cloud, you can get your network back up and running quickly so that you can get back to work.

3. Struggling Internal IT Department

With today’s rate of technology change, it is hard for an IT team to keep up with the latest equipment and monitor application updates, all while keeping up with support tickets.

Custom Cloud takes the technology burden off your team and puts it in the hands of account specific, technology experts.

“We had an internal IT person for about twenty years. When they left, we were able to find a young, energized, organized internal IT person as a replacement, but they only stayed three years. The next IT person we hired was in over his head. He wasn’t driven, put band-aids on issues, and no new initiatives were implemented during the three years he was here. Then we decided to outsource to a local IT vendor –this was a disaster! That’s when we came to Custom Cloud.”

4. Network Administrator Leaving

Do you know how long your network administrator will be working at your firm? Most firms face the dreaded “two weeks notice” time frame to hire a suitable replacement and opt for Custom Cloud instead.

5. Difficult Outsource Experience

Some firms have come to Custom Cloud from outsourced IT companies that didn’t understand the accounting industry.

The Custom Cloud team speaks accounting – that’s all we do. We work updates and maintenance windows around the accounting industry’s calendar, and we understand the interaction between all the applications that firms use.

6. Growth

Mergers and acquisitions are great times to consider moving to the cloud. Custom Cloud can help merging firms streamline IT environments from two different and diverse working cultures. We provide all employees a cohesive technology experience, across all offices, making for easier collaboration.

7. Start a New Firm

Small firms can benefit from the same level of security, efficiency and service to their clients as a larger firm. Custom Cloud offers high-quality technology at a price a small firm can afford.

“A hard lesson that we learned was: you can’t outsource to just any IT company. Most accounting firms, including ours, use numerous applications –over 60. We need these applications to work in unison. This is quite a necessity, and unless an IT company has accounting firm experience, this is difficult to understand, let alone implement.”

8. Change of Leadership

During times of transition, it’s a good idea to evaluate your current technology. Many firms will upgrade to the latest technology so that their leadership team can focus on the big picture, and not the headaches of an outdated machine.

9. Get Out of the IT Business

Chances are you didn’t start an accounting firm to be a technology expert. But with IT becoming more and more integrated with every aspect of your firm, it may feel like it.

Many firms move to Custom Cloud so that they can focus on their core competencies instead of IT. We take care of your technology so that you don’t have to. Our team works exclusively with accounting firms. We know your applications, your deadlines, and how everything works together.

10. The Accounting Profession is Moving to the Cloud

General trends within the accounting profession show that more and more firms are moving to cloud-based solutions for their technology infrastructure. Efficiency, security, peace of mind, long-term costs, and work from anywhere capabilities are just some of the factors behind this trend.
