The Challenge

When Carrick Aland was formed in 2011 from the merger of Carrick Ashmead and Aland & Co Accountants, they faced a unique challenge: integrating their long-standing traditions with the demands of a modern business environment. Their clientele, spanning multiple generations of farming families and business owners, required not only impeccable accounting services but also a modern touch that catered to the evolving business landscape.

The Journey Begins

This journey started with a bold move – transitioning to the cloud. While many firms were slow to embrace the cloud, Carrick Aland, in partnership with Worktopia, was on the front foot, recognizing the potential of leveraging modern technology to better serve their clients. Over the years, as the business landscape evolved and the adoption of SaaS tools became the norm in the accounting industry, Carrick Aland, under the guidance of Worktopia, refined and evolved their IT infrastructure. This wasn’t just about staying up-to-date; it was about leading the charge.
