Client’s books piled up, account reconciliations, tax deadlines to be met…
This is how a day in the life of an accountant used to look. Limiting them to focus on petty tasks like keeping track of the financial records, matching them, and updating them on a regular basis.
However, from the age of the abacus to the present times where Accounting software has become a wand every Accounting wizard must know how to work around with, technology has been playing a vital role in redefining the working ways of an Accountant.
With the rapid infusion of technology, today’s accounting professionals aren’t merely number crunchers but an organization’s most trusted business advisor. Internet, availability of analytical tools, and cloud-based software sit at the core of an Accountants transition into tech-savvy business advisors.
We at Zyla are no different. Tech-savvy, number-loving Accountants & business advisors for small businesses. We are now Xero Gold Partners as well!!
Zyla Accountants – Tech-savvy number handlers with solid IT expertise
We are new-age accountants who not only enjoy doing our client’s books but also have expertise in leveraging the power of technology. This is the core of how Zyla works. It allows us both time to focus on more revenue-generating Accounting tasks as well as analyze in-depth data that we can use to help grow our client’s business.
From the very beginning when Zyla was founded, we wanted to take Accounting a step ahead. And our millennial tech-friendly mindset allowed us to incorporate a fully-fledged tech ecosystem in our Accounting practice.
Look at us now, transforming and redefining the basics of the Accounting industry. Our clients see us as their Accountant, trusted advisor, mentor, and trainer as well.
Was it easy?
Not exactly but surely an innovative approach to Accounting.
Technology in Accounting – Changing the dynamics of the industry
While traditional accountants were still figuring out if technology can be a costly affair to handle, we envisioned the future of Accounting and fell in love with it. You love it or hate it, but you can’t ignore the fact that technology has become an important part of every business aspect. Now, even our clients expect us to be up-to-date with the latest technology trends.
Accounting softwares like Xero have allowed us to increase our efficiency and productivity. Be it collaboration, be it real-time analysis of our client’s financial position, or be it a data-driven approach to cash flow forecasts, technology has made decision making easier.
Accounting on the Cloud while client’s revenues touch the sky
Who would have thought Accounting professionals would have to become software gurus? But again adaptability has always been the thin line that differentiates mere survival from growth. The same holds true when it comes to using Cloud Accounting software to grow your practice.
Cloud Accounting offers us to access our client’s data remotely via highly encrypted servers. We don’t need to rely on manual calculations anymore since automation is already taking care of it for us. We are able to save ample review time and use it to focus on ways to generate more revenues for our clients. Integrations further allow us to keep track of all our client invoices, keeping their balances accurate at all times.
How do we become tech-savvy?
We have a variety of tools, assisting us with different processes so that we can invest our Accounting skillset in helping our clients. Some of the tools that have made us tech-savvy are:
- We use Slack, Whatsapp for communication.
- Xero Accounting software is our magic wand.
- Google Sheets help us with sharing data via the cloud.
- Accountancy manager is where we meet and greet our clients & managed our own workflow.
- Our remote team work from My Quick Cloud from locations around the world.
- All of our passwords are encrypted in Lastpass to ensure our client’s data security
- Workflow Max helps our clients in better managing their Projects.
- We prefer Startling Bank for mobile banking.
- Taxfiler helps us keep our clients tax-ready always.
- We also specialise in Zoho, Clearbooks, Sage, Quickbooks, and a ton of other software as well.
How becoming tech-savvy helps us help you?
It’s a mutual relationship that benefits both of us. We can:
- Invest more time helping your business rather than number-crunching:
Gone are the days when Accountants were next of kin to Bookkeepers. Technology has changed this relationship a lot and Accountants now aren’t dealing with just numbers but real-time data. With this data, we have been able to help businesses minimise their losses and maximise their profits whilst meeting their financial and tax obligations.
- Prioritise client communication and experience:
Technology has brought us closer to our clients. With end-to-end encrypted communication channels, we are always in touch with our clients. Remote is just another word for efficiency for us.
- Reduce human errors:
As Automation with Accounting software continues to get better, it has immensely supported us in replacing the erring human nature. Reduced error means lesser review time and perfect reconciliations.
When we have technology helping us with other day-to-day human-intensive tasks, we are better equipped to hand over our client’s work before the deadline dies.
- Harness data to provide sound advice & make quick decisions:
Numbers have encrypted stories to tell and technology allows us to decrypt them and make better-informed decisions based on the available data. It also helps us to figure out the right solution much quicker. Had we been still relying on Excel, we would have found it hard to excel at what we do!!
It’s all about choosing the right tools for the right process. We’re not just here to make sure you’re meeting your accounting deadlines – we also help you operate your finances in a more efficient way, so you can grow your business confidently and sustainably.
