New Twitter and Facebook-based interface has been developed in recognition of the need for closer collaboration between clients and accountants
Twinfield UK, Wolters Kluwer’s online accounting business has launched a brand new interface for users of its Twinfield online accounting system.
The Twinapp Store, which was unveiled at Twinfield’s National Accountancy Day (NAD) 2013 in The Netherlands, includes new features and functionality designed to meet the operational needs of national and international clients in a range of sectors.
The AppStore, which is the latest in a number of developments by Twinfield, will enable Twinfield’s partners to position their products as apps within the existing system so that users can pick and choose which products they would like to use without the need for third-party intervention.
The new interface also includes new quotation functionality and expanded sales invoicing features designed entirely on the premise that traditional accountancy software no longer reflects the working processes or needs of the profession. The new UI is based entirely on the needs of Twinfield’s end-users who need and want to collaborate more closely. The technology behind the new system is also used by Facebook and Twitter.
Barbara Kroll, managing director, Twinfield UK commented: “We have developed the new user interface in direct response to the feedback that we have received from our SME end users. Accounting processes are increasingly becoming automated and real-time collaborative and we want to make it as easy as possible for business owners and accountants to work together.”
André Kwakernaat, CEO of Twinfield also revealed the company’s impending ‘Audit Rule Set’ at the NAD, a brand new feature which will allows customers to set rules and criteria so that accounts can be automatically verified, providing accountants with increased efficiency and the assurance that data is accurate and up to date.
