It’s official. We’ve only gone and won the 2021 AccountingWEB award for Practice Management Software of the Year.  

Although it feels weird to be celebrating an award win in February, we’re not complaining. Quite the opposite.

For us, awards aren’t just badges for the website or new bling for the office. They’re recognition – from our users and the industry – that we’re genuinely making a difference on a large scale. 

And what could be better than that? The fact that we obtain almost 50% of all votes in our category. 


Constant progress – and never forgetting where we’ve come from

AccountancyManager has evolved substantially over our first five years, both as a company and as a software. We’ve grown from two people (Co-Founders James and Alex) – building AM in the box-room of an accountancy practice – to over 30.  

Last year we welcomed Kevin McCallum and Kath Tenner as our new CEO and CFO respectively. Kevin and Kath bring a wealth of experience to the table, both having spent many years at FreeAgent. James Byrne is still very much involved as AM’s Chairman, while Alex Hawke continues as CTO.

2021 also saw us listed 33rd on Deloitte’s UK Fast 50 and 1st for the Midlands.

The software too, continues to evolve, with new features being added all the time. Last year saw lots of new integrations released and the much anticipated white labelling. This means practices can fully brand the Client Portal so it looks embedded into your website. It went down a storm.

To our users, partners and even our competitors: Thank you

We’ve said it before and we’ll never stop saying it, we wouldn’t be where we are today or winning awards without the continued support of our users. Everything that AM is and can do, is because of the needs, suggestions and ambitions of our users.

We’re working with more partners across the industry than ever before. There are software partners like FreeAgent, Xero, QuickBooks, Sage and Zapier. AccountingWeb, of course, and the brand gurus over at PracticeWeb.
