A Cumbrian accountant has launched an app to help its customers on the move.

David Allen Chartered Accountants, which has offices across the region, has created the app to add to its existing services.

David Allen said: “The app is the next phase of our investment in technology and a further development in effective communication with clients, for example through the use of push notifications.

“It will allow users greater accessibility to important information wherever they are, and as businesses are ever changing the app can be developed in line with this, which is an exciting prospect.

“I look forward to seeing the positive impact and effect the app has on our clients and their businesses.”

Available in Google Play and the app store, if clients download the app, it means that they can access cloud software on the go and the app also includes calculators, a mileage tracker and document scanner.

The firm was established in 1997 by David Allen.

He started out on his own working from his garage in Dalston.

The business has grown over the years and currently employs more than 100 staff who are based across four local offices at Dalston, Dumfries, Penrith and Workington.

It specialises in a range of services across many business areas, including accounting and audit work, tax advice, VAT advice, financial planning and IT support as well as all employer services.

The David Allen group of businesses is made up of the main David Allen accountancy firm plus David Allen IT Solutions, David Allen Financial Services, and David Allen Recovery Solutions.
