Staying Ahead of Change: The Coexistence of Accounting, Bookkeeping and Technology

Technology is continuing to drive rapid change in both the bookkeeping and accounting professions; in many cases this is leading to uncertainty, anxiety and inertia in how to respond to this threat/opportunity. The lines of demarcation are becoming blurred, with accountants venturing into the “traditional domain” of the bookkeeper, technology automating the bookkeepers’ data entry roles and bookkeepers becoming technologists. So can the accountant, bookkeeper and software consultant happily coexist and thrive in the future? The answer is a resounding YES! But how?

 

Attend this session to learn:

  • How to proactively participate in your own redundancy (of tasks) before technology does
  • Expand your sphere of influence and relevance to your clients
  • How accountants can find great bookkeepers to refer their clients to
  • How bookkeepers can engage accountants that are looking for professional bookkeepers to refer their clients to
  • Discover new roles that provide a golden opportunity to create a bookkeeping and accounting business that is built to keep
  • How to use technology to unlock the latent demand for value-add services that exist within your client base
