Walker & Sutcliffe, the chartered accountancy practice based in Huddersfield, has invested £25k in computer hardware that will enhance the company’s processes and deliver efficiencies for the team.

Furthermore, it will allow for the transition from a solely office-based workplace to a more hybrid formula.

Setting the foundations for a three-year strategy that is underpinned by expansion, this is the first phase of a longer-term plan that will see additional funds allocated to software and training over the coming months.

Practice partner, Nick Ledgard, comments: “Investment is the only way that we can ensure we have the systems and processes in place that we need to grow. We have strategic plans for expansion over the next three years and I want to make sure that we have everything we need to meet with our ambitions.

“Putting in place the hardware is just the first step. Next is the software and training that will allow us to use these systems effectively and benefit from the efficiencies that they can deliver. After all, it’s all well and good having the equipment but if we can’t access its full potential then we are not making the most of the opportunity it affords us.

“We are always looking at ways that we can improve, not just the systems that we have but also the skills within the team. This is a great opportunity to learn new ways of working that will benefit the team and our clients.”
