Renewal of agreement between Ignition and ACCA UK promises a deeper partnership with multiple benefits for accountancy practitioners.
Ignition and ACCA UK will help accountants take the next steps in delivering a more streamlined and automated client onboarding experience using Ignition’s innovative technology.
Using the Ignition app, practitioners will be able to create stand-out interactive proposals and engagement letters, alongside ensuring they get paid on time, every time.
For the accountancy profession, a Letter of Engagement (LOE) is an essential and mandatory part of the client relationship. Ignition has incorporated into this new system ACCA UK's LOE template. For ACCA UK, the integration of payment, data protection requirements and services provided to clients into a single onboarding process with Ignition is the solution to making things compliant, but also efficient.
Emma Crawford-Falekaono, Head of EMEA at Ignition says: ‘ACCA’s one of the world's most respected and influential accounting industry associations. Our work together is pivotal to our regional goal of ensuring accountancy and bookkeeping firms are best equipped with the right tech to drive revenue, reduce admin, remain compliant and increase value for clients. Working side by side empowers us to enhance our connection to the industry while opening opportunities for ACCA to continue fulfilling its mission.’
Glenn Collins, head of policy, technical and strategic engagement at ACCA, said: ‘We are delighted to renew and strengthen our partnership with Ignition, following three incredibly successful years. We understand the challenges our practitioners face and listen to our community to establish partnerships that truly benefit them. Ignition delivers practical solutions to help our community and their clients work better together and helps manage the relationships. We're excited about our partnership and how we can support our practitioners and drive the profession forward.’
