The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) has launched two iPhone and iPad applications for its students and accountancy professionals, according to a press release.
The ‘Student Planner’ and ‘Research and Insights’ apps will help students and accountancy professionals access relevant information about key accounting issues.
