Software that simply makes life better

When it comes to change, you want to change for the better. It’s the same when changing your software.

You expect the basics to be absolutely right. You also expect to see real value improvements in the way you work and a positive impact on your organisation.

With HCSS Accounting, we are confident that we have delivered.

Work from any location at any time

Like the rest of our software portfolio, HCSS Accounting is cloud-based. What does this mean for you?

It means greater accuracy as your financial data is all in one place and everyone in your team can access the latest information.

It means greater security as there’s no need to send sensitive information via email or on USB memory sticks.

It means greater convenience as you can access the data in real-time, for example during management meetings. You can work from any location, which is great if you are based remotely or need to catch up outside office hours.

All you require is an internet connection.
