Accounting information systems
Accounting information systems (AIS) combines traditional accounting practices with information technology resources.
AIS is a computer-based method for tracking and reporting accounting activity which can be used internally by management or externally by investors, creditors and authorities.
Accountants are finance and information specialists, and the major decision-makers in a wide range of organisations.
