The Australian Accounting Tech Report: Solving the time/tech conundrum

Join us to discuss the results of a major survey exploring the increasing demands on accountants’ time and barriers to  adopting new technology.

As they head into a new financial year, accountants and bookkeepers are facing growing workloads and limited staff, placing ever-increasing demands upon their time. Refining their working processes can help, yet many also lack the time to research which systems and automation can best create efficiencies.

In this preview of an exclusive new research from Dext, The Australian Accounting Tech Report, this webcast will examine the findings of a survey of over 550 accountants and bookkeepers across Australia. It will feature several expert speakers:

  • Glenn Castle, Dext
  • Cassandra Scott, Laurus Bookkeeping
  • Alan FitzGerald, Practice Connections
  • Shaye Thyer, Quickbooks
  • Tim Goode, Ignite Accountants

We’ll provide detailed insights on how to solve this ‘time/tech conundrum’ in the new financial year, helping firms find systems that will greatly reduce the need for manual labour and free up time, without becoming overwhelmed by options.

You will learn:

  • Biggest time burdens on accountants and how they can be relieved
  • Strategies for working smarter in the new year by simplifying processes and systems
  • Major barriers to tech adoption and how they can be overcome
  • How to use technology in a meaningful way that avoids ‘tech fatigue’

This webcast will be live and interactive, so come prepared with your questions for our panellists to answer live.
