Background

Rushtons Chartered Accountants & Business Advisers (www.rushtonsaccountants.com) are an independent, full-service firm of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers operating from offices in Preston and Blackpool, Lancashire. Employing 35 staff, Rushtons have been a long-standing customer with A&N who have provided a range of IT services over the years.

Requirements

Although many key staff at Rushtons had been working remotely for a number of years, Covid-19 meant senior management needed to act quickly to enable even more staff to work from home. As “lock down” approached, they immediately turned to A&N for assistance.

Solution

By combining a number of key technologies, A&N were able to roll out & deploy remote working quickly & efficiently to all the Rushtons staff that needed it.

Result

Having implemented the solution, the Rushtons Management Team were delighted.  Chris Calvert, Director at Rushtons commented, “Work from home for all our staff is running smoothly – a big thanks to A&N. Years in the planning, it isn’t a fluke we were well prepared & we’ve seen the benefits.”

Andy Procter, Technical Director at A&N said, “As soon as this Coronavirus pandemic hit the UK, we knew hundreds of local businesses would be totally reliant on the advice from their accountant. Helping Rushtons staff to work flexibly & provide those services to their clients was foremost in our minds.”
