FINAL UPDATE - 1:00pm
Hi everyone,

Just providing some further insight to the issue some users experienced this morning relating to Reckon Accounts Hosted access.

Further investigation uncovered 2 separate issues which contributed to the overall experience on Friday morning.

The first being issues with our website platform which prevented access to a number of areas including the Reckon Accounts Hosted login link on our site. We have identified the root cause of this problem and put procedures in place to ensure prevention of recurrence in future. There were no underlying issues with the Reckon Accounts Hosted program itself this morning.

The second aspect was connectivity issues for some customers on the Telstra & Optus network. This issue was external to Reckon and resolved earlier this morning by Telstra which restored access to Amazon Web Services (AWS) for this group of affected customers.

Thank you for your patience today as we worked through the issues this morning and our sincere apologies for the inconvenience and frustration caused.

    I can fully understand your frustration Tiffany.
    The team are doing everything they can to resolve this matter with the utmost urgency.

    We believe there may have been a potential connection with the Telstra broadband outage this morning.

    There is no issue with the Reckon Accounts Hosted program itself and we are getting a number of reports of successful logins from users.
    Please try accessing the Hosted login page here - https://hosted.reckon.com/RAHV2/ReckonAccountsLogon.aspx

    Thank you for your patience.

    Hello Vivien,

    We are very sorry that you experienced an interruption to the Hosted Service today.  
    We found no issues with the Hosted Service itself and located the problem with a general Telstra outage earlier today that affected some subscribers like yourself accessing the service.  Telstra has now restored its service so you should now have no trouble accessing Hosted through the standard link:  https://hosted.reckon.com/RAHV2/ReckonAccountsLogon.aspx.

    Thank you for your patience and please let us know if you continue experiencing any difficulties logging on.  


    regards,
    John
