Advanced Professional Solutions (APS) in the UK, market leading provider of Practice Management solutions for top tier accounting and professional service firms today announces the availability of a new software interface between Advance Practice Management (Advance PM) and the accounting package, Access Dimensions.
The solution enables accounting firms to ensure relevant information entered in to one system is duplicated in the other, reducing administration time, improving billing accuracy and time to payment. The software has been developed in close partnership with integrated software solutions provider, dhc.
Advance Practice Management and Access Dimensions are two mission critical systems widely in use by accountancy and professional service firms throughout the UK. By developing this interface, APS and dhc are enabling these organisations to use Advance PM to log billable activity, related expenses and disbursements on to the system, whilst the software link automatically populates the relevant fields and/or records in Access Dimensions. Furthermore, the software interface is bi-directional with Access Dimensions also updating client, engagement and disbursement records held in Advance PM.
Business Development Director at APS, Tim Bennett, commented “APS and dhc eliminates the need for data re-entry between the two systems, minimising inaccuracies and discrepancies. By automating this step in the process the gap between logging billable activity and accurately invoicing the client is closed, thus improving cash flow and delivering significant efficiency benefit to the firm.”
Director at dhc, Matt Garman added: “The new interface is very effective in addressing two of the major challenges faced by every professional services organisation. Maximising billable hours and reducing the time between invoicing and payment.”
During a proof of concept implementation for the new software interface one professional services organisation has reported saving five administration days per month.
