“Time is money” – it’s a phrase we bandy about, but what if it impacted your business in such a way that doing things slower resulted in penalty fines for your firm and your clients? The logical solution is to work faster, but with the challenges of migrating from a legacy IT system, to staff training, to choosing from a myriad of productivity solutions to fit your business requirements, it may seem all too daunting.

An easy win adopted by the likes of accounting firms such as MacKenzie Strategic and Northern Business Consultants (NBC) is to tackle common pain points – such as cutting down on paperwork to move towards a streamlined paperless environment. At ATSA 2015(Accounting Technology Showcase Australia) in October, we ran a survey to find out what other accounting firms thought about this:

Notion of ‘work’ is challenged

The old fashioned notion of ‘work’ is out the door – no longer do businesses expect, nor want, pencil pushers for employees (or in this case, paper pushers). Working smarter is important for 67% of survey respondents who found manually following up on paper-based processes to be their top frustration, followed by 49% who are most peeved by the time and resources wasted when mistakes and edits are made on documents.

Convenience trumps cost

Compared to 20% of survey respondents who said competitive pricing is a top consideration when making a decision to go paperless, an overwhelming 71% said ease of deployment and use is the most important factor, while 43% singled out mobility as a key factor.

Electronic signatures are here to stay

No longer a ‘nice to have’ option, accounting firms are demanding for e-signatures to be deployed across the business with 86% of survey respondents finding it the most useful paperless office feature. This is followed by the ability to convert PDFs into multiple file formats (61%) such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and the option to secure sensitive documents with passwords (39%). If you want to learn more about this and the entire accounting field, in general, to make a successful career change consider getting an accounting degree to launch yourself into a rewarding career.

Die leistungsstarke Funktionssuite von Nitro umfasst all dies und noch mehr. Mit der Vertrautheit einer Microsoft Ribbon-Benutzeroberfläche ist Nitro Pro – unsere Desktop-Lösung für die Erstellung und Umwandlung von Dokumenten – mit minimaler oder sogar ganz ohne Schulung leicht zu erlernen. Die Möglichkeit, direkt mit Nitro Cloud – unserer Cloud-Lösung für den Austausch, die Zusammenarbeit und die Online-Unterzeichnung von Dokumenten auf jedem beliebigen Gerät – loszulegen, gibt dabei internen und externen Beteiligten die Freiheit, ihre Arbeit von überall aus zu erledigen. Wir freuen uns, dass die Buchhaltung selbst Zeit spart, nachdem sie genau dies für das Unternehmen erledigt. Beispielsweise können Sie nun einen Buchhalter kontaktieren, der alle Arten von Beratung zu Geschäften anbieten kann, statt nur finanzieller.

Es ist zwar unmöglich, mehr Stunden in den Tag zu packen, aber sehr wohl möglich, die vorhandene Zeit gut auszunutzen. Testen Sie Nitro mit einer kostenlosen Team-Testversion, oder fragen Sie unser Volumenlizenzprogramm an.
