Technology in Accounting
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
By the end of this event the participant should:
- Understand that technology is changing the accountant’s old way of doing things;
- Know of the tech trends that are happening in the accounting sector;
- Understand what this means for accountants in practice;
- Understand which key strategic moves to make to survive the digital revolution; and
- Gain practical insight on various tech that may be used to run the accounting practice.
The survival of today’s accountant no longer rests upon his or her number-crunching abilities. This part of the accountant’s role is now slowly being taken over by robots or “bots” as they have come to be called in tech lingo. And these bots do the job at amazing speeds and with brutal efficiency!
Rather than fighting change and looking at it as a curse, everyone needs to acknowledge and embrace this as a blessing! Trends in the profession show a movement away from compliance services to a more advisory services focus. Those who are a step ahead are adopting technology for its efficiency while they focus on adding real value to their clients. This is where the accountant’s survival lies!
There is a lot of tech available today that can be used to change the efficiency of an accounting practice many times over for the benefit of both the practitioner and the client.
