As an IT service provider to a number of accounting firms, Exigence understands their unique technological requirements. From small local practitioners to a large national accounting firms, the role of IT in facilitating seamless daily operations can not be overstated.

We understand that efficiency and reliability of technology leads to better services for your clients and increased revenue for your organisation. Our hands-on expertise transcends the entire gamut of finance-related services, so that you can get the best out of leading accounting packages and cloud-based services such as Xero, MYOB Essentials, QuickBooks Online, BQE Core and many others.

What makes Exigence unique in the Acounting Sector?

Cybersecurity and Data Privacy

Exigence has the skills and proven methodology to protect your organisation and your client's personal data. Using a cost-effective approach, we align your systems with the Australian Signals Directorate’s 'Essential Eight' controls to ensure emphasis on Cybersecurity and Data Privacy.

Unfortunately, it's all too common for accounting practices to select IT providers based on simply ticking a set of boxes, e.g antivirus - yes, backups - yes, etc. and then looking at the price. The problem with this approach is that is provides a false sense of security. Our approach ensures that what we propose legitimately address all of your security and privacy issues.

Compliance with Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA),Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) controls and Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB) policies

Exigence is a subject matter expert when it comes to regulatory compliance. From a hands-on understanding of APRA compliance requirements, to ATO/ASIC legislative provisions, we can assist in a cost-effective manner. 

While we don't profess "accounting" expertise, we understand how to configure and implement IT systems that adhere to strict requirements, including management of client's financial and personal information as well as "Service Organisation Controls" (SOC TYPE 2) that govern utilisation of cloud-based accounting systems. 

Reducing IT Running Costs

We've yet to meet an accounting firm that wasn't concerned about reducing their IT running costs. Indeed, to do more with less is one of the "goals" that never goes away. The common approach of moving "everything" to the cloud in the hope that removing your on-prem hardware will somehow reduce your IT capital and operational expenses is a "red herring". 

As a cloud migration expert, Exigence will analyse your current IT infrastructure, build a "Total Cost of Ownership" model and compare it against recurring cloud running expenses. Only then can an IT strategy can be developed that not only aligns with your business requirements, but also reduces your costs.

By becoming our client you will align yourself with Australia's leading IT experts in the cloud space. We have the depth of knowledge and expertise to recommend cloud services specific for your business case. 

Over 25 years of relevant industry experience

From sole practitioners, small local practices to large national accounting firms, we understand the requirements and know how to address them. Moreover, our familiarity with the requirements of most accounting systems creates a single-stop helpdesk where we can work together with your vendors to address any issues. This saves you the time and frustration of having to liaise with multiple providers to address even the most basic issues.

Covid-Safe IT Services

We are on the forefront of IT technology and innovation. Our monitoring and maintenance services can be delivered remotely 100% of the time. Our support desk is designed around cloud platforms, thus allowing our engineers to support out clients from any Internet-enabled location.
