Accountancy and consultant firm Grant Thornton is using Huddle's cloud collaboration technology to connect its member firms, allowing client teams across the world to communicate and share content.

The cloud service means business units can share best practice more easily, as well as shortening response times to its client and stakeholders.

The company said that up to 39,000 staff will be able to access to software as a service tools.

"Our member firm client teams are dispersed across the globe and these teams need important information at their fingertips," said Gernot Hebestreit, global leader, business development and markets, Grant Thornton International.

"We are always mindful of the legal requirements to safeguard client information - but just as critical is our need for these teams to be able to respond to changing client needs immediately and to collaborate in a safe and productive environment.

"With access to this agreement, our teams can now easily access and deploy Huddle's cloud collaboration service to support effective communication with clients and stakeholders worldwide."

Last year, Huddle was been chosen by accountancy firm Grant Thornton to provide the communication platform for the government-backed GrowthAccelerator programme designed to support new businesses.
