Leading into the first day of #Accountex, there was a bit of a question mark around the #MTD delay. Seemed like a bit of a ‘wait and see’ approach. For us though, the hot topic was actually more about firms moving to cloud services sooner rather than later and streamlining and standardising as much as possible.
Why do we go?
#Accountex is a pivotal platform to showcase our latest innovations. It’s a great meeting point to reach potential new clients, and to network with other firms and partners. A big part of it is also to discover and learn more about the current needs and concerns of our clients/accountants.
Who from our team went?
This year we had around 9 team members rotating through our stand. This included a mix of product, development, support and sales team from our London offices, and we also brought in our Product Manager from Australia so she could experience Accountex and immerse herself in the UK accountancy world… “G’day Katie”!
Steve’s live product demonstration was extremely popular, at times there was standing-room only, the number of visitors was overwhelming and the response was very favourable!
MyWorkpapers CEO Rich Neal’s keynote presentation on Day 1 hit on several topical points, including technology and processes firms need to standardise and streamline with minimal effort, and using cloud technology and integration to collaborate with clients.
