The new portal, called Stream, was designed to meet growing client demand for software solutions that improve efficiencies in business and accounting processes.
The portal allows clients to store all their applications in one spot, and gives them access to over 4,000 cloud-based applications using a single login.
Stream also includes a document management system, an integrated calendar functionality, and a dashboard displaying critical business data in real-time.
Moore Stephens Victoria’s CEO, Steve Sakkas, said the portal will assist them to understand their clients’ business and tailor their services to meet their specific needs.
“Stream is... a secure, scalable technology platform that streamlines business data for clients and gives them an information edge, while simultaneously allowing us to work closely with them to service their specific accounting and advisory needs,” Mr Sakkas said.
“Stream will help our clients to grow their businesses by improving business processes, reducing costs in the long term and improving access to a wider range of professional business advisory services,” he said.
Moore Stephens Victoria associate director and Stream project lead, Amy Riddell, added that the portal would also help maximise collaboration opportunities.
“While SMEs are becoming increasingly aware of the power of cloud-based software solutions to enhance business processes, utilising the platform to enhance collaboration is critical to realising Stream’s full potential,” Ms Riddell said.
“We designed the solution to enhance collaboration with our clients, greatly increasing the added value proposition of our client services teams.”
More features are set to be added to Stream over the next six months, including electronic signatures, message boarding, payment systems, chat bots, industry benchmarking and investment dashboards.
