“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.

L'ensemble de fonctionnalités puissantes de Nitro inclut tout cela et bien plus encore. Parce que Nitro Pro rappelle l'interface utilisateur en ruban de Microsoft, notre solution de bureau pour la création et la conversion de documents est simple à prendre en main, avec ou sans formation. De plus, la possibilité de l'ouvrir directement dans Nitro Cloud (notre solution cloud pour le partage, la collaboration et la signature de documents en ligne sur n'importe quel appareil) donne aux parties internes et externes la liberté de poursuivre leur travail où qu'elles se trouvent. Il était temps que les professionnels de la comptabilité puissent eux aussi gagner du temps, après tous les efforts qu'ils déploient pour en faire gagner aux entreprises. Par exemple, certains comptables proposent désormais tous types de conseils aux entreprises, et pas seulement financiers.

Une journée durera toujours 24 heures. Mais il existe une solution pour utiliser ce temps limité de manière optimale. Testez Nitro avec une version d'essai pour équipe, ou contactez-nous dès aujourd'hui pour en savoir plus sur notre programme de licences en volume.
