UK software group m-hance, whose client base is mid-sized organisations, has launched Financials to Go (FTG), a flexible cloud-based accounting solution for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
Based on established Microsoft technology, FTG is a hosted private cloud solution which can be deployed within five days or less and offers SMEs reliable and cost effective financial management to drive efficiency savings. FTG is also fully compatible with smartphones and mobile devices, enabling financial information to be accessed securely and remotely from anywhere in the world.
FTG has been developed with a flexible upgrade path specifically tailored towards new business start-ups, expanding SMEs or for those wishing to leave their current accounting solution provider. Designed with MS Word and MS Outlook templates, FTG includes a full range of intuitive out-of-the-box functionality built on technology which can be accessed via the cloud. Onsite training is also provided by m-hance’s team of consultants with additional support available via its web-based portal.
Andrew Hayward, managing director of m-hance, said: “Good, solid financial management is the cornerstone of a healthy and successful business and so it is essential that SMEs have a solution that they can rely on. FTG has been specifically developed by m-hance to enable SMEs to be quickly up and running with a cost effective financial management solution via the cloud that is scalable to grow with them, but one that is also trustworthy and easy to use.
“We have developed FTG with a clear and scalable upgrade path, ensuring users can move on up as their business does. This makes it an ideal choice for SMEs that have outgrown their existing accounting system and who don’t typically have the resources to purchase and support a new in-house solution. In addition as FTG is hosted in m-hance’s UK-based data centre SMEs can be reassured that their data is both highly secure and compliant, leaving them free to concentrate on innovation and other value added projects.”
There are various ways for financial institutions to benefit from advanced technologies and business models provided by FinTech's. Whether a business' approach is radical or incremental, data management can help a company to increase their return on investment, argues André Casterman, INTIX.
