According to Reckon, the new ‘Find a partner’ website benefits both SMEs and accountants by allowing businesses to search for a suitable and trusted accountant or bookkeeper and easily connect with them.
Sam Allert, managing director of the Australia and New Zealand business, said the ultimate goal of the site is to strengthen small businesses throughout Australia by assisting them to find the right adviser for their needs.
“Being able to find an expert in the field, with a wealth of knowledge across the Reckon product suite, will help further take the accounting burden off small business owners.
“Technology and software in general is often underutilised – this site can help put businesses in touch with professionals that are able to optimise not only how their business operates, but add value to the bottom line by increasing productivity and automation,” Mr Allert added.
The site offers a searchable mix of accountants, bookkeepers, trainers and business consultants to help SMEs manage their business.
By simply searching by location or keywords, users are instantly provided with a shortlist of relevant professionals. They are able to not only drill down to see local partners in their area, but can also read their business profile and contact them directly from the site.
The site gives accountants and bookkeepers a platform to communicate to small businesses, as well as showcase their expertise and locality.
All accredited Reckon partners will be listed on the site.
