An accounting, taxation, financial and business advisory services firm has signed a deal valued at more than €300,000 with business software giant Sage. FDC, with a 15,000 client base, plans to roll out Sage Accounts and Payroll.
Under the terms of the partnership, which has a potential combined value of €300,000 over three years, Sage Ireland will also provide additional resources at FDC and a training programme to upskill staff at 22 FDC offices.
Sage solutions include Sage 50, Sage MicroPay and Sage QuickPay and the company is aiming to add a minimum of 100 sites per annum.
FDC offers a wide range of accounting, taxation, financial and business advisory services to a diversified portfolio of clients throughout the Republic of Ireland. The company’s first and foremost business objective has and continues to be the delivery of a quality service to clients proportionate to their needs.
“In response to growing customer demand and in recognition of the increasing requirement to comply with complex legislation, together with the lack of expertise most employers without IT departments find themselves in,” explained Jack Murphy, managing partner at FDC.
“We have entered into a partnership agreement with Sage to roll out the Sage range of cost-effective, flexible and business solutions that can be tailored to the individual needs of our clients,” Murphy added.
Headquartered in Cork, FDC employs more than 250 full-time staff. In addition, the company has formulated selective quality associations with other service providers – banks, life companies, selective solicitors, auctioneers, agricultural consultants, and business IT consultants, to allow them to deliver a quality service to clients proportionate to their needs.
