What Senta says

Your software shouldn’t tell you how to run your practice.  With our powerful and customisable workflow engine at its core, Senta will help you work just the way you want to. Practices use Senta to differentiate from their competitors, by helping to deliver great customer service every time, with frequent and personalised client contact. Senta also comes with a client portal that lets you exchange documents securely and e-signatures.

We release new features every week. Recent additions include auto-chase, to keep emailing your clients until they give you what you need,  new document importers to import your Virtual Cabinet & Docusoft documents; and individual file permissions - ideal for payslips or other documents that are sensitive to the individual.

What AccountingWEB says

Starting from a slick home-page dashboard, Senta gives the impression of being a very well engineered piece of code and the feeling continues as you delve into a collection of features that cater effectively for the needs of most accounting practices.

A sign of its quality is that even with a lot of power under its bonnet, Senta is easy to use. The dashboard has a clean, adaptable layout featuring user-configurable widgets, while the main client list includes pull-down options to filter different types of client and outstanding tasks.

The application’s foundation is a customisable workflow scheduling engine that links to lightweight, but functional CRM and marketing tools. Senta plugs into the practice’s existing email programs to show messages to and from clients by all colleagues in the practice in one combined view. The integration extends to most cloud bookkeeping platforms, data management tools such as Zapier and agencies such as The Pensions Regulator and Companies House.
