Whether it’s a fast-growing start up using cloud software for the first time, an established company which has switched from another starter cloud package, or an accountancy practice which demands the ultimate in scalable, reliable software for its customers, AccountsIQ is fast becoming the number one choice in mid-market Cloud accounting software.
Having explored the market for a new accounting software solution, we happened upon AccountsIQ. A needs assessment carried out with them very quickly established that AccountsIQ could do everything that we were looking for and more. The transition from our legacy system was seamless and the support throughout has been without fault. What is also hugely admirable is their commitment to continued development of their product roadmap and attention to customer needs and feedback, often missing with larger Accounting ERP system providers.
Ken O’Flaherty, Chief Financial Officer, (Tech company)
This powerful cloud accounting software has transformed our whole month end process through its intelligent intercompany & consolidation capabilities. Also impressed with its extensive suite of reports.
Sinead Miles, Group Financial Controller, Kefron (Tech company)
AccountsIQ gives charities robust tools to manage their financial processes and help them to comply with regulatory and reporting requirements and good governance standards. The AIQ offering for charities provides a system which is accessible, affordable and scalable. The potential for integration with other systems such as a CRM and Payroll systems provides for further data security and efficiency improvements.
Sylvester Murphy, Deputy CEO, Enclude (charity sector technology consultancy)
We’ve taken the opportunity to redesign and rebuild our reports because of the flexibility within AccountsIQ. We are no longer restricted to what, when and how we report; it is a big step change. AccountsIQ saves me a week’s worth of work every month end.
Simon Brown, Financial Controller, Getech (energy company)
Great product – lot of automation and powerful granular reporting! Saves an awful lot of what was manual work. Good API’s mean that you can adopt the best of breed approach to your business.
Chris Pomfret, iSAMS (Education tech company)
We decided to move to AccountsIQ as the company was growing and the software that we were using was not fit for purpose. We needed a package that could handle multiple entities, intercompany transactions and consolidation. AIQ was recommended to us by KPMG and I had also done my own research and came across you as a possible solution to our needs.
Liz Murphy, Finance Director, Terra Solar (solar energy company)
Mid February, I learned that Sage was withdrawing Sage Financials in December. We only put it in 21 months ago. So I have been looking for a good cloud-based replacement that is strong on Dimensions /Analysis Codes.
Among a dozen candidates was AccountsIQ. I took a peek at a demo system and really liked it. Great scalable product, with an innovative approach to Dimensions. I hoped we might break all records and implement it in a week as our new accounting year started on 1 April. I signed a contract Wednesday morning and we went live at 4:30 on Thursday afternoon.
Neil Goulder, Director of Finance & Operations, Artichoke Trust
Having implemented AIQ whilst covering a maternity leave, I got to know all the features and felt the system was a better fit for our rapidly growing business here in FourTheorem- a way to future proof our finance system!
Pauline O’Shea, Financial Controller, FourTheorem
It is easy to go with the larger names in the world of accounting, but after over 20 years in Accounting Software implementation, Accounts IQ is the easiest to use product I have ever used and the power of Accounts IQ equals and surpasses much larger and more expensive products I have implemented.
David Tinnion, Business Analyst, ION
My favourite thing about the AccountsIQ system is how easy it is to manage multiple companies and switch between them. I’m always moving from one company to another and it’s just so easy with AccountsIQ. I can very easily drill down into the detail and get from the big picture to the small picture very quickly which is very useful for me.
Neil Griffiths, Senior Partner, PRP Architects
Great accounting software package especially if you need to consolidate multiple entities/currencies.
Joanna Coomey, Finance Manager, Carma Technology (Tech company)
Great application with so much power for the price point. My go-to enterprise solution when a business moves up the maturity/complexity curve – in-application consolidation, simple and streamlined inter-company, powerful API and amazing data segmentation with up to 6 dimensions to grab data!
Alastair Barlow, founder, flinder (accountancy practice)
I’ve spent 20 years in finance and AccountsIQ is by far the best solution I’ve come across. Hands down beats the major players and has more functionality at a cost effective price. Wish I found this years ago.
Lee Camp, Group Finance Director, Salamanca Group (merchant banking company)
The software is intuitive and quite simple to implement which means you are up and running fairly quickly. It’s very easy to use. We’ve got ambitions for growth and we know AccountsIQ will allow us to move quickly when we add new entities to the group.
Marcus Karia, Group Finance Director, Arix Bioscience (Biotech investment company)
Using the TransferMate Global Payments service within AccountsIQ has enabled us to make significant savings on our FX payments. On one recent FX transaction alone we saved €2,500 versus the rate quoted by our bank. It was also easy – doing it directly from within AccountsIQ as part of the normal payment run process. Saving money while streamlining our FX payment process – it is a no brainer for me.
David McMahon, CEO, Emydex (food processing software company)
Great cloud based accounting product and easy to use. Able to produce statutory and management accounts efficiently and the reporting capabilities are numerous for any sized business wanting to enhance its business intelligence information.
Stephen Plant, Finance Manager, Gayhurst School
We would like your opinion, add your own testimonal
We were looking for accounting software that was very clear and easy to use but still powerful enough to provide great business analytics and manage consolidations effectively. AccountsIQ has ticked all the right boxes and we are very happy that we have made the move.
Neil Griffiths, Senior Partner, PRP Architects
The implementation process was faultless, we migrated from Quickbooks and had regular meetings and encouragement to keep us on track. The API was the feature that sold AIQ to us and it has been great. AIQ support is superb so any issues we have ever had have been resolved quickly.
Helen MacDonald, Finance Manager, PortSwigger
We have been using AccountsIQ (AIQ) for a number of years. In the last couple of years we acquired some entities that were on different accounting platforms. We had been happy with AIQ and decided to expand the platform to take all our entities to the one platform. This will ease the general management of the company and greatly simplify the consolidation process.
Mel Lynam, Director of Finance, Smartfrog
AccountsIQ saves us a day a week in processing time in data entry from other business systems, reconciliation, and automated invoice processing. This allows us to spend more time on the more “value-add” aspects of the Finance function, analysing and presenting information on which the senior management team can make more informed decisions.
Nicholas Treanor, Financial Controller, Hibernia REIT (property investment company)
AccountsIQ has really helped us maximise efficiencies by being so user-friendly and versatile, with some really useful tools. My favourite tool is the GL Explorer, it allows us to review both live and retrospective P&L and balance sheets instantly, as well as drill down to a transactional level. Also, the automated bank reconciliation is very efficient.
Aoife Smith, Head of Finance, EPIC (Museum)

We needed quite complex functionality including multi-company consolidation and multi-currency accounting and were delighted to find a mid-market cloud solution for hotels in AccountsIQ.
Ian Bremner, Director of Hotel Accounting, French Duncan (accountancy practice)
I have used numerous accounting packages over the years but AccountsIQ is the most intuitive relative to the vast amount of functionality available. Its in-depth reporting functionality is a standout for me and when management often requires variations to the standard monthly P&L, the ability to tailor the reporting parameters saves me valuable time and frustrations.
The other key differentiators are its multi-currency and consolidation functions. We recently bought another company which was operating on MYOB so reviewing both sets of accounts each month highlighted the superiority in multi-currency that AccountsIQ has, amongst other advantages.
Morag McKeand, Financial Controller, Educrowd (skills management company)
Fincovi selected AccountsIQ as our accounting platform for its unique capability to manage wind and solar farm SPVs in a highly controlled environment.
Ray O’Neill, Executive Director, fincovi (renewable energy financial services company)
AccountsIQ is a great user friendly management accounting software package which makes the month end process substantially quicker. The software is straightforward to navigate with an impressive consolidation tool, as well as automatic foreign exchange functions.
Highly recommended for groups with multiple entities in different currencies. There are various online modules to assist with using the software and a helpful support team.
Paul Cran, CFO, Assure Hedge
AccountsIQ build good relationships with their clients. They really get stuck in to learn the business and are solution oriented. If something isn’t working, they’ll work with the client and figure it out.
