Last week we spoke about the importance of having a sound document management system in place. This week we are going to talk about the often neglected but primary function of Human Resources (HR) and in particular how getting this right from the start can allow for a smooth on boarding and exiting of staff members and heaven forbid if there is a non compliance HR claim made against you!
In our last blog in this “App Stack” series, we discussed the options around E-Sign and Xero’s recent announcement on that topic.
This time we’re discussing document management and storage, providing a little love for you all this Valentines Day, on a pretty involved topic!
In our last blog in this “App Stack” series, we discussed the communication apps essential to any accounting firm or business for that matter.
We were going to discuss the options around document management this week, however with a recent announcement from Xero, we thought it timely to discuss the options for E-Sign or Electronic Signatures.
With the modernisation of communication in general, relying on hard copy documents that need to get posted and signed, is fast becoming an anomaly in many firms. It’s slow, costly and takes much more manual input to manage.
In our last blog in this “App Stack” series, we discussed the additional compliance applications that help you as the trusted advisor around corporate affairs and self managed superannuation funds.
This time we’re discussing the communication apps, both internal for your team and external for your clients.
As of 26 January 2019, Xero will no longer be “supporting” (pun intended), the ability for their customers, yes both business and their accountants, to email in a support request. Instead Xero will now be utilising a portal that is housed within their Xero Central support platform.
Welcome to 2019 and we trust that all our followers and readers had a superb break and if you’re back at work now, that you’re pumped for an exciting year ahead!
Before the break and in our previous blogs, we discussed the core applications and Reporting Applications of our App Stack which we think are vital to the operation of a cloud based accounting firm.

Accountech.Live is the new and revamped ATSA with some fresh new ideas and the batten being passed from Smithink to National Media, who have done a terrific job with Australian Business Expo (ABE). Clarity Street focused on two tracks during the event, the round table discussion groups and the apps live track being the most relevant.
First impressions were that Accounttech.Live wasn’t as impressive as ABE. It didn’t seem to have as much foot traffic as its sister event, perhaps the venue was larger or accountants are getting a bit over all the tech conferences???
Our key takeaways from the event are:
Wow, what a fantastic webinar we were part of yesterday with the wonderful Jack Kay of Practice Protect!
We took a deep dive into the secrets of a cloud integrator <insert shameless plug for Clarity Street!> and how they can assist accounting and bookkeeping firms transition to the cloud.
Not only that, there were some fantastic tips presented by Jack, around the real security risks that are out there in this ever changing landscape of technology within business. He talked a lot about how to mitigate those risks with some simple tips around passwords and your downloads folder.
