ACCA develops new apps

By Kokumo Goodie, Lagos, Nigeria

Global professional accounting body, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) has developed two new apps for students and people working in the accountancy profession.

According to the body, the two apps, the Student Planner and the Research and Insights app, are designed to give students and accounting professionals access to information at their fingertips and keep them organised and informed of key accounting issues.

The Student Planner app is free to download and is available for iPhone. It offers students advice on how to get started with the ACCA qualification, pass exams, gain experience and behave ethically and professionally; a countdown to key dates relating to exams and recording experience, with the ability to set alerts for these events and synchronise them with their iPhone calendar.

The body explained that it is an interactive tool to work out when they might become an ACCA member, based on their progress and if they stay on track with their study and plans for gaining experience just as it gives an insight into how fast they are progressing and tips on how to move faster through to ACCA membership.

A free Research and Insights app has also been produced for the iPad, which keeps users up-to-date with the latest reports that have been published – such as Risk: The Inside Story.

The app also explores trends and issues crucial for business, economies, society and the accountancy profession, now and in the future.

There are other features to the app such as exclusive video interview with ACCA’s leading experts and interactive infographics.

Commenting on the development, Ewan Willars, policy director at ACCA, said: “These apps have been designed to make it easier to access information on technology that more and more people are now relying on, such as smartphones and tablets, in their busy day-to-day lives.

He adds: “This is part of ACCA’s digital strategy, which is about making our products and materials available to the online community.”
