Cheshire based Josolyne Medical Services is using Twinfield, Wolters Kluwers cloud-based online accounting solution to offer its clients real-time accounting and tax services.
Josolyne Medical Services (associated with Josolyne & Co. which has over 120 years experience within the industry) is the first accountancy practice to offer this service to medical professionals. Using Twinfield, Josolyne provides proactive advice on how to maximise income, generate new sources and mitigate tax and pension liabilities.
Nicki Pace, Head of Medical Services and Partner in Josolyne & Co, says: Medical practices are understandably often short of time due to the nature of the profession, and now want much greater knowledge and exercise of management skills than has been required in recent years. Without an online accounting system, financial reporting can be very time consuming.
We quickly recognised a trend for accounting in the cloud and, having used CCH Accounts Production software from Wolters Kluwer in the past, it was very easy to integrate with Twinfield. Prior to using the system, we used Sage, but Twinfield seemed to fit the bill.
Pace continues: We chose to tailor Twinfields online accounting system to be readily used by medical practices, to help save practice managers time by automating processes, which in turn ensures that they have the most relevant and reliable data to hand. Online accounting provides us with much better visibility of a clients accounts, without having to ask them to pull the information together. Data is usually electronic within medical practices; therefore it is much easier to input data. Previously, we would have to chase clients for information by phone and theyd have to email huge PDFs which were often difficult to send.
Since January 2013, weve been using Twinfield to work more collaboratively and closely with our clients who range from hospital consultants to GP Practices, and are able to help with year-end reviews, performance indicators, budgeting and management accounts. Many of our clients are located some distance away from our office; therefore Twinfield enables us to have more regular interaction, in addition to our usual advisory meetings. Fundamentally, weve been able to add value to our service.
Pace concludes: Weve also integrated with Twinfields partner, Basecone, which allows clients to scan invoices from any location, so that invoices can be processed and then the data can be populated within the system for reference. The ability to scan and automatically populate the system with data is unique to Twinfield. We have a good, professional relationship with the Twinfield team theyre friendly, listen to our feedback and are very proactive with resolving issues when required.
Josolyne Medical Services will now look to move further clients across to the system to enable greater collaboration. As the client base expands, the company hopes to explore other reporting and stock applications.
Barbara Kroll, managing director of Twinfield UK, comments: Josolyne is really taking the lead with online accounting for medical practices they are using online accounting in a way nobody else is. By designing and setting up reports tailored specifically to the medical industry, theyre able to offer a service that many other accountants just simply couldnt provide.

The recognition and visibility that these young women receive lead to educational and workforce opportunities in technology, encouraging them to persist in one of the fastest-growing and most stable fields. We are excited to support these young women as they continue on their paths to success.
The award has encouraged and impacted thousands of young women since its inception in 2007, widening the talent pool and closing the gender gap in computing, a critical 21st century skill.

Research has validated that encouragement is one of the most important factors in helping girls pursue computer science, which is why Microsoft is pleased to support the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Award," said Microsoft Research Principal Research Director Rane Johnson-Stempson.
Encouragement is a driving factor in how likely female students are to complete a computing major/minor and to choose a computing career more important than young womens confidence in and perceptions of their ability. Find related research at http://www.ncwit.org/thefactsgirls.
