On 1 August, The Access Group completed the acquisition of APS and Elite products to create a unique and significant new entity in Australia and New Zealand – The Access Accountants Group.

For APS and Elite clients, there is no longer any dilution of focus that comes from building both client software and Accountant’s software. There is a lot more to running a successful Accounting firm than just client ledgers. Being part of Access Accountants Group, we can be one hundred percent dedicated to delivering and continually enhancing the specialist Practice Management software and Compliance software that is critical to enable Accountants to grow their practice and advise their clients, from sole practitioners to the big four accounting firms.

“In bringing together two businesses with a strong track record over more than 30 years delivering end-to-end solutions tailored to the specific needs of accounting firms in Australia and New Zealand, our combined industry experience, capability and resources, means we are uniquely placed to continue to deliver and build on the breadth and depth of software solutions that accounting firms require to adapt their practices to their clients’ rapidly changing needs.” said Kerry Agiasotis, President of The Access Group Asia Pacific.

We recently brought our newly combined leadership team together to share, collaborate and ideate around our future vision for our combined Accounting customers.

“The voice of the customer was at the core of these sessions in which we focused on expediting the delivery of our current product roadmaps such as the APS+ range, as well as our vision for a complete end-to-end cloud native tax and practice management solution. The excitement around our new vision was palpable and the talent we have to achieve this is the best in the business.” David Francis, GM Access Accountants Group.

This is great news for existing APS, Handisoft and Elite clients who will see their product roadmaps speed up as we combine capability and people to enable additional resources and investment, as well as providing a wider range of solutions in time. We’re on the cusp of something really exciting and our teams are reinvigorated in what this means for our customers.
