We help you use technology to improve ways of working and transform your businesses.
Raffingers Digital Solutions was launched earlier this year with a clear vision: to empower forward-thinking business owners to harness the power of technology, improve ways of working and transform their businesses.
Our digital journey started in 2015 with the launch of our Cloud Accounting Department. We were ahead of the curve in recognising the benefits that business owners could discover through technology. Since then, we have worked with clients to migrate over to cloud accounting systems such as Xero, take control of their finances, and deal with the many changing faces of Making Tax Digital.
Fast forward to now and technology has evolved at a rapid pace. Through the powers of digital, we are now able to provide transformational improvements on the way that businesses can operate, manage their finances, access information, and even market their businesses.
These changes have led us to the official launch of Raffingers Digital Solutions, and we can’t wait to dive deep into your business and help you take it to the next level through the powers of technology.
BOOK A CONSULTATION.
Book a complimentary consultation with our Digital Solutions specialist so that we can deep dive into your business, understand your key challenges, analyse where you are now and start designing where you could be in the future.
DESIGN THE FUTURE.
Following the initial consultation, we will design a plan that will help you achieve your business and personal goals through the powers of technology. In this plan, we provide an analysis of your existing systems and processes, and prepare a roadmap of how our digital solutions can help you to streamline your business and experience transformative impact.
SET-UP & TRAINING.
Once we have agreed on the plan, we will get your business set up on the required systems and make sure your team are comfortable using them.
OUR CORE SERVICES.
We will carry out a review of the current cloud system you have in place, in order to determine if the data is kept tidy and if there is any room for improvement with regards to efficiencies and cost savings.
System Design & Implementation
You will receive a custom design and implementation of a brand new system that helps streamline all areas of your business.
Whether you have digital solutions or apps you currently use but don't quite have the hang of, or we recommend you something new, we can provide you with full training so that you feel confident with the software you are using.
We will conduct a full systems review of your current operational processes, financial data system, and business organisational structure, and provide recommendations on improvements and changes.
Implementing suggested or recommended apps in-line with your current system.
We can provide you with 1-1 consultations to discuss a systems review, answer any questions, or simply provide advice and support on your internal operations. This can be one-off or on-going.
