Partnership with Danbro
FreeAgent agrees UK’s biggest cloud accounting deal
The deal will see 4,000 of Danbro’s freelancer, consultancy and micro-business using Edinburgh-based FreeAgent’s platform.
The partnership is believed to be the single-largest deal involving any UK cloud accounting provider.
Danbro will offer clients the opportunity to use FreeAgent as their preferred cloud accounting system.
Ed Molyneux, CEO and co-founder of FreeAgent, said: “We’re thrilled to announce this partnership with Danbro, which is not only our biggest deal, but also the largest of its kind ever in the UK cloud accounting sector.
“Many more of their clients will soon join those who are currently benefiting from the FreeAgent platform, which highlights our mutual commitment to supporting micro-businesses and providing them with the best possible tools to manage their accounts.”
John Thorburn, director of accountancy services at Danbro, said: “This is a fantastic deal for Danbro’s customers and allows them to manage their money on the go while also giving them access to a wealth of innovative tools and applications.
“We have big growth ambitions and a reputation for using the latest technology to help our clients work more effectively and save money. While our clients will see no changes to the service they receive, this deal with FreeAgent will allow us to do even more for them and ensure they can concentrate on making a success of their businesses.
“This is the biggest cloud accounting deal signed in the UK and demonstrates the scale of our own ambitions. By giving people free access to FreeAgent’s innovative software alongside Danbro’s expert service, we’re confident we can help the self-employed sector to flourish.”
FreeAgent launched in 2007, “hewn from the frustration that managing company finances was just too damn hard for most small businesses and freelancers”.
