Diamond Cloud Solutions provide a complete desktop for your online working environment. If you’re familiar with a Windows desktop, start menu and other common features, you’ll have no problem navigating Diamond Cloud Solutions.

Rather than focusing on features, consider how Diamond Online may help you in your working practices:

Diamond Cloud Solutions for Business Management

You will have your own Diamond Cloud Solutions desktop installed on our servers in a secure data centre. Licensed software applications and a user account will be applied according to your requirements and you will be able to process your accounts from the office, home or from anywhere with an Internet connection. Diamond  Cloud Solutions provides the benefit of a powerful business and accounting solution without the problems of upgrades, re-licensing or data security.

Diamond Cloud Solutions for Accountants

The accountant will have a dedicated sector on our servers in a secure data centre with a full suite of licensed software applications available. Individual accounts can be issued for in-house users and each of their clients that wish to use the service.
