Major boost to Exact Online’s international roll-out

Agreement signed with UK top 25 chartered accountancy firm

Delft/London, July 29, 2014 - Business software supplier Exact and leading chartered accountancy firm HW Fisher have signed a memorandum of understanding. As part of the agreement, HW Fisher will make the software available to its SME clients in the manufacturing, wholesale and distribution, and professional services sectors.

Erik van der Meijden, CEO of Exact: “Accountants are the gatekeepers to local entrepreneurs in all countries where we offer Exact Online. Following the deal with EY Belgium, which we announced earlier this year, the agreement with HW Fisher is another resounding endorsement that our international accountancy outreach program is working.”

A key reason for HW Fisher’s decision to partner with Exact was the proposed complete nature of the company’s cloud offering, meaning clients only need to use one solution for their finance, business and ERP functions. In addition, Exact software allows SMEs to grow and scale quickly, without needing to change software providers along the way. Exact’s global footprint and its comprehensive customer support were also important factors in the decision for the London-based accountancy firm. 

Managing Partner of HW Fisher, Michael Davis, commented, “We are looking forward to working with Exact to help our clients move to the cloud. We were searching for an all-in-one solution which allows clients to scale rapidly and which offers more functionality as they get bigger. We are looking forward to working with Exact to achieve an integrated solution for our clients, which in turn will help us to fulfil their reporting and compliance needs.”

Hartmut Wagner, Managing Director Cloud Solutions at Exact, added, “With record numbers of small businesses starting every year, the UK is enjoying a golden age of entrepreneurship and we are delighted to be partnering with such a leading light in helping these businesses to succeed.”
