Any time there is a change/shift in technology people get tense. This is totally justified; IT is an essential aspect in today’s CPA firm and how it meets the need of their clients. Thus, moving to the cloud can seem daunting since it touches both technology and people.
The reality of the situation is this: a CPA firm has on average 70 or so unique applications, likely hundreds of GBs of data, and nuances galore. There is no way to move a firm to the cloud without an ever-evolving, ever-improving process managed by outside experts.
Xcentric performs a cutover on an almost weekly basis throughout the (non-tax season) year. It’s what we do and can be compared to a decent-big size audit done by one of our clients. We take our firms’ transition to the cloud very seriously. So much so that we have a whole team dedicated to managing the process.
