RSM Tenon has chosen internet based accounting system E-conomic as one of its accounting system solutions to support its finance and HR outsourcing proposition to franchisors and SMEs.

Grant Sayer, Technical Director, Outsourcing Operations, for RSM Tenon says that he wanted to give a more active service where clients can interact with their accountant — a common platform to share information and tasks. “Franchisors and SMEs want a cost effective accounting solution for their franchisees and custonmers that creates the least amount of effort to utilise and maintain — their procedures and software packages need to be integrated and it also needs to be flexible to grow with the business. We’ve obviously looked carefully at other systems but we found that the functionality, flexibility, pricing and scalability of the E-conomic system meets all of these needs.”

“RSM Tenon is well known for its progressive and entrepreneurial approach and we are always looking for new ways to improve and broaden our service offering — this SaaS solution really fits in with our overall ethos.”

Sayer says that the key advantages of the system are its strong reporting capability, its scaleability and its depth of functionality. “It’s really easy to integrate data either through templates or web API integration tools and it also has an open data architecture so that historical data can be imported. It also has wide ranging applications covering a host of scenarios — timesheets and expenses for project oriented clients; web trading, integration into CRM systems and EPOS.”

”We’re obviously delighted to be working with RSM Tenon, says Anders Bjornsbo, co founder of E-conomic and UK Operational Director. “After a year of testing, the fact that the UK’s 7th largest accountancy firm has chosen the system is testament to the quality of the E-conomic product.”
