Presented live at Accountex 2013, this slideshow covers the key statistics to encourage you that making your website mobile is now vital for every accountancy firm small or large.

It also presents options through www.myfirmsapp.co.uk to help you do just this through the use of 'adaptive technology'. In short, that means for most firms you don't need a brand new website but instead can have a solution that recognises the device viewing it; presents your website in the perfect way for that user; and avoids you being one of the sites that 61% of people say they would quickly leave if it is not mobile friendly.

We hope this presentation is both helpful and encouraging for you and if you would like to talk any more about your circumstances, goals, your website and options to best support you - then please look at www.myfirmsapp.co.uk or call Dan Richards direct on +44 (0) 7879 654191 or in our office on 0800 8030826. Best wishes!
