Some may say that I’m a Xero love child. Back when I was an senior accountant when Xero exploded into the Australian market, I fell in love with it’s ease and simplicity of the single ledger, and what that meant then and still now for small business accounting.
Now I don’t think that Xero has all the bells and whistles that some other platforms have, or that it suits every business, in fact, I’ve spent a bit of time affectionately bagging it at times, all in the name of future improvement...and that’s what I love about this software so much. Xero listens to the constructive feedback of the industry and continues to develop the platform, to make beautiful accounting software. They also like to keep the industry and it’s clients up to date in one of the biggest and brightest event’s of the year, that would be #Xerocon with just over 3700 delegates, 40+ speakers and some very wild pre and after parties!
Do you still fancy behaving like a Post Office after last weeks topic? This week, in the last of the series of the 7 Steps with Clarity Street that EVERY Accounting firm needs to Improve On, we talk about a topic that is dear to Clarity Street’s heart. Like all of the posts in this series, although they’ve been predominantly pitched at Accountants, this week our final blog relates to every business, no matter what industry or size, because it’s true to say that…you can’t be half pregnant, it’s time to fully adopt!
7. YOU CAN’T BE HALF PREGNANT
Have you sorted out your Debtor issue yet, like we touched on last week? This week our topic is predominantly for the accounting industry, however it’s totally applicable to any service based company that receives mail on behalf of their clients.
6. YOU ARE NOT A POST OFFICE
To follow on from last weeks topic where we asked, “why are you acting like a Bank?”, let’s talk about Debtors. It’s a serious issue for any service based business, so much so that there is an entire industry and software platforms, dedicated to reducing the impact this has on businesses of all shapes and sizes.
Clarity Street was conceived from years of engaging with Accounting firms on a daily basis and a constant desire to make Accounting firms & SME’s more efficient and profitable.
