McGladrey Recognized by Accounting Today as a Technology Pacesetter
Annual designation focuses on leadership in business technology implementation and consulting
CHICAGO, IL – McGladrey LLP, the largest U.S. provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, was recently named by Accounting Today as a Technology Pacesetter, a designation which, according to Accounting Today, "focuses on what it means to be a true leader in the field of business technology implementation and consulting.
The publication narrowed its list this year, limiting the field of representatives. So while the list is not definitive, the firms included on the list are indicative of the types of firms that show where the profession is going, in terms of both technology and service.
Accounting Today notes that, "McGladrey has become the consummate consultant and partner to local, national and global businesses through the wide range of software and services it offers. These go beyond accounting-related technologies to include services in advisory, infrastructure, outsourcing, mobility and the cloud, as well as non-tech services in tax, audit and operational consulting. Its size helps, allowing the firm to attract and retain top talent and build teams based on the specific technical need and industry experience required by clients."
"McGladrey's focus on services innovation can be summed up in two words: cloud and mobility," said national technology consulting leader Brian Becker. "At McGladrey, we understand that what started out as a movement to anywhere-stored data is the desire to anywhere-access that data. In mid-2011, McGladrey broadened its ERP offerings with cloud-based solutions, and we've since seen tremendous momentum in that area of our business, while building to add other subscription-based solutions such as hosted e-mail, e-mail security and virus protection, cloud-based backup and recovery, and encryption."
