Microsoft have just released Office for iPad and it’s available right now on the app store and could be a huge game changer for businesses of all sizes.

If you use an iPad for business but have to revert to a laptop or desktop to do ‘Office’ based work i.e.. spreadsheets, presentations etc then this will be very welcome news.

As mentioned its out today and its free but there is a catch to that. You can download it right now and get the ability to open Word, Excel and Powerpoint documents which is great if you are doing a presentation only or don’t need to edit.

If you want to use it just like you would in the office to write documents, create and edit spreadsheets or create presentations then you will need to subscribe to Office 365. Subscription rates vary so you’ll need to check which one is for you.

McPhersons have again separated themselves from the traditional accountant by becoming one of only 2% of accounting firms who have developed their very own app. So what made them decide to launch their app this week?


Mcphersons new app menu screen. Get it on your Android or Apple device today.

Says Mark Finch, Director at McPhersons “The way we all communicate has changed and will continue to change. With most of our clients using tablets and smartphones, this App is perfectly designed to enable us to reach them. With an estimated 830 million enterprise smartphone and tablet App users, it’s a channel that accountants and financial service companies can embrace to stand out from the crowd.”

There are thousands of apps out there, what makes this one so good?

  •        It gives you access to a wealth of useful financial information, wherever you are;
  •        There are some extremely clever tools e.g. a Mileage Tracker so you never have to record your business miles manually                  again;
  •        You can find out all the latest tax information, thresholds etc. and these will always be kept up to date
  •        You have access to various calculators e.g. VAT, Loans, Mortgage, Savings and more…

And best of all, it’s FREE!

You certainly can’t accuse McPhersons of being stuck in the past. They might be 57 years old but their forward-looking vision places them in a strong position when helping their clients plan for the future.
