DESCRIPTION

The bookkeeping function is a crucial part of the cycle that produces financial statements for various uses by different users. In this field, accuracy is a must! 

Enter Artificial Intelligence (AI).

AI is a revolution that is affecting every industry and profession in one way or the other – including bookkeeping. Gone are the days when all that a typical bookkeeper would do is sit and capture transactions all day long. There now exists new technology that is both faster and more accurate. 

It is important for bookkeepers to learn how to use and work alongside these systems as opposed to being replaced by them. If embraced, this technology will assist the practitioner to increase their efficiency greatly. Old methods just won’t cut it in today’s business world.
