Our comprehensive IT expertise enables us to meet the demands of the Accountancy and Financial Services sectors tailoring our services to the individual needs of your business.

Lumina Technologies provide first class managed IT services for accountants and finance businesses. We have an understanding of the needs and pressures that exist within the industry and the importance of data to financial services providers cannot be underestimated. It is your key asset, so the software and hardware involved in its processing, storage and protection must be taken very seriously by any practising accountancy or financial services firm.

By working with Lumina and our managed IT services and support, you can rest assured that you are taking the best approach both to optimising the efficiency of IT within your business and to the safekeeping of your organisations data and information.

We work with our finance & accountancy clients to get a high-level understanding of company strategy and what their business is trying to achieve. We also look at what people need to accomplish, establish where the bottlenecks are and analyse the fee earners’ time. We will then give them the tools that will enable staff, and fee earners in particular, to do more work in less time.

This means your fee earners can spend more of their time with their clients, giving them a better customer experience. The business adage that ‘people buy people’ applies – all professional service firms offer similar services, but it is the ability to give clients a superior ‘white glove service’ that makes you stand out from the competition, at the same time as increasing trust, loyalty and reputation.

In the long run, your company will not just save money, you will also have more time to research revenue creation opportunities which could potentially add even more value to your business.

Our consultants work with you to help you develop their systems and gain a competitive advantage. From creating and managing effective IT strategies, through to advising on specific accounting and finance software selection, our consultants have a wealth of experience to help meet all types of challenges.

What sets us apart

  • Client Experience

    What sets your firm apart from the competition? – Providing sound financial advice to clients is not enough. Customer service excellence is an essential part of improving client retention and increasing the take-up of more services. This is achieved by giving your fee earners technology that has the ability to improve productivity, enabling them to service clients more efficiently and boost billing potential.

    24/7 support – Your fee earners are willing to work all hours of the day and night, and so are we. Whatever time you need our support, you can be sure one of our Helpdesk engineers will be working on your issue within 30 minutes of your initial call. The majority of problems are generally resolved within three hours.

  • Compliance

    We work together with firms to ensure they are compliant with the FRC, taking steps to identify risks, provide and monitor protection controls, and resolve any issues as soon as they appear.

  • Data Security

    Client confidentiality and data protection are key issues for all businesses, but in the Accountancy sector, this is even more important. Ensuring your clients’ financial information remains confidential is becoming increasingly difficult. We are fully Cyber Essentials certified and will work with your firm on a security maturity plan to protect you and all your clients.
