It was the 1st time I have visited this event, and I wasn’t expecting to gain a great deal of value either.
However even before the event had begun, it was clear that the whole ethos of the show mirrored the thoughts I have within Rodliffe Accounting and all the subsidiary “Accountants 4” businesses.
John Stodyk, from Accounting Web, plotted the digital revolution within Accounting Practices back to 2006, the year we 1st began business and were 1 of only 2% of the market that had embraced ‘online accounting’. John then presented statistics that see this rising to 50% of the market now and the large fish are circling to try to join the party. So long as we continue to play our A game, we will rise above them.
When I relate back to previous smaller shows I have attended, they have had masses of people trying to sell ‘websites / brochures / cards etc.’ but at this show it was all about ‘who has the biggest tech stack’, with Xero leading the way for more than one reason.
For information on how we leverage the services of those with the largest ‘tech stack’, like Xero, and more news on how to keep your money in the safest hands possible, stay tuned in to our blog.
