Deloitte Jumps on the Internet Bandwagon
Feeling the pressure of rival Big 5 firms who announced in recent weeks a move to more Web-based consulting services through new alliances and partnerships, Deloitte & Touche also have announced a migration to the Internet.
Deloitte will parter with US Interactive to provide high-tech services like Web design, Internet strategy and implementation services alongside the firm's already-established consulting practice.
Source say Deloitte and US Interactive are working on their first project that will be announced in early 2000.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
