Family company finds new ways to mange multiple currencies Exports

A family run company, located in Kent, that exports to over 20 countries found itself struggling with their current accounting software.

Their existing system simply couldn’t continue carrying out straight forward tasks when required. Additionally this resulted in all sales inquiries having to be entered manually and with more complex transactions later being created using an Excel spreadsheet. Aqilla were able to demonstrate an easier and more efficient way this could be done with the use of their systems.
