Key Takeaways

If your data wasn’t up to date, if you weren’t lodging the relevant tax or GST statements, or you didn’t have up to date books, it was you who will be chasing your tail to apply and get government stimulus. But everyone who’d worked closely with their accountant had up to date books, and the accountant could just take them on that journey and submit and they got their stimulus packages. -Sam

But the reality is accountants, are often at the forefront of technology adoption and big drivers of cloud technology. AI, machine learning is all about automation. And for us, it’s about automating as much of the process to make accountants more efficient, essentially. – Sam

And a lot of the times, it all comes back to the customer. It is about what we are doing for the customer using AI and tech, and integration and automation to make it easier. – Paul
