Many, many years ago we aspired to, that’s us guys in accounting, find ways to speed up data entry. The computer, along with the advent of accounting software did this for us, and we took to it like ducks to water. Over the years the IT evolution has become more demystified and the competency has grown in leaps and bounds, with most people being reasonably confident with how their accounting systems work.

Here at Acuity, we are excited to announce that Craig Roshier has recently joined the team as our new Senior Account Manager.

Over the last few months reporting and analysis have been highly prominent – a trend we believe reflects the huge extent to which technology is part of our everyday lives and the fact that so many of our daily activities are data-driven.
