Every professional firm needs to be agile and deliver modern services to each of your clients. One of the most effective ways to support your existing clients and attract new business is to join the App economy.
To celebrate we even asked the Dancing Accountant to 'get Appy' at Sydney Central train station.
Join the App Ecosystem
Launched in 2013, MyFirmsApp is a unique App creation service that has taken the UK by storm with over 75,000 end users. Every accountancy practice, law firm, financial advisor or bookkeeper in Australia can now take advantage of this service and move their businesses into the digital fast lane.
The App has become the critical interface for hundreds of accountants and bookkeepers. It’s the link between their firm, their customers (and future clients) and their systems (MYOB, Xero, NetSuite, Freshbooks, Receipt Bank, Kashflow, FreeAgent, Sage etc.).
And now, this tried, tested and proven technology is available in Australia.
The App your business can create today enables you to deliver your latest services personally to each client, but more importantly securely. The App MyFirmsApp can create places client security at its foundation. You can make a close connection with your clients safe in the knowledge that they are fully protected by the latest digital security technology.
The App economy is alive and waiting for your firm’s App. According to the latest Australian Lifestyle Index, 89% of Australians now own a smartphone, 60% own a tablet PC with 32% of respondents that didn’t own a smartphone would be purchasing one in the next 12 months. Deloitte also found that 57% of Australians considering their phone their ‘go to device’ for services. And smartphones have now officially overtaken laptops are the preferred mobile device.
What this means for every accounting practice in Australia, every law firm in Australia, financial advisor or bookkeeper working across Australia is that they have a direct channel to their existing and new clients via their digital devices. This delivers a new age of service delivery.
Thomson Reuters’ Scott Fleszar commented: “The mobile app enables practitioners to bring their clients a whole new dimension of functionality while maintaining their own branding and identity,” he said. “It’s a way to collaborate and stay productive without being chained to a PC, to automate the delivery of information and build better relationships, and to provide a level of service and sophistication that wasn’t possible for small and mid-sized firms in the past.”
In the past the credentials of a business were defined by their website. Today, whether a business has an App is now the defining factor that many enterprises and individuals use as a key differentiator when buying financial and accounting services.
Scott Fleszar, vice president, Strategic Marketing at Tax & Accounting, Thomson Reuters said: "The mobile app enables practitioners to bring their clients a whole new dimension of functionality while maintaining their own branding and identity. It's a way to collaborate and stay productive without being chained to a PC, to automate the delivery of information and build better relationships, and to provide a level of service and sophistication that wasn't possible for small and mid-sized firms in the past."
The development of Apps has until now been long and expensive. With the arrival of MyFirmsApp in Australia, accountancy practices, law firms, bookkeepers and financial advisors can create their own App with no technical knowledge and to their exact specification. With a tiered pricing model, your business can have the perfect App developed in full knowledge of the precise costs.
