Accounting software provider Reckon has announced a partnership with AusDocsOnline, to expand its offerings to include legal documents. The new alliance follows a deal last month to boost Reckon’s services to include stock and inventory management.
The partnership will see access to over 500 legal documents from AusDocsOnline’s self-service portal that have been written by legal document provider LexisNexis Australia.
In addition to legal documents, AusDocsOnline will provide access to professional advice covering workplace and commercial law, as well as services for HR and industrial relations.
“Workplace legislation is tougher than ever today. Small businesses are typically unable to afford HR or legal professionals, or the time to review policies, they tend to expose themselves to costly, damaging claims,” said Shaun Locke, national sales manager for Reckon ANZ.
“AusDocsOnline provides business owners with quick, easy and affordable access to legal documentation, policies and procedures, enabling them to run better businesses.”
AusDocsOnline co-founder and director Gary Kendrick welcomed the partnership, saying the additional service offerings would benefit client adviser relationships.
“This partnership with Reckon is an exciting one,” said Mr Kendrick.
“Raising the level of knowledge through access to quality legal and compliance services, SMEs will have a more valuable experience with their advisers."
