A few of us from Johnston Associates South Chartered Accountants have just returned from XeroCon, the biggest accounting technology conference in New Zealand. It was slick, impressive and a great experience and we think the Xero accounting system is great, but one of the biggest takeaways from this conference, for me, was listening to former rugby league coach, Graham Lowe. As a speaker he was entertaining and offered real gems of wisdom. He also endorsed something that we believe at Johnston Associates South, and that is;
Although systems are important within your business, the thing that really makes your business successful is the people working within it.
We’re proud to have a team of people with a “can do” attitude at Johnston Associates South, and a range of skills that cover many bases. We work for you to make your business smarter and more productive; if you’re successful, we’re successful. We’re also adaptable and will work with whatever you’ve got as far as accounting systems are concerned. So whether you’re using Xero, MYOB, Reckon One or one of the other systems on the market we can work with you. This is what one of our client’s, Johnson’s Barge Service, said about us…
We use an accounting software package called Quantum and instead of trying to make us change our system, like others did, Johnston Associates South bought their own Quantum software so all we need to give them at year end is a backup.
If you need advice on switching to a cloud based accounting system, and don’t know which one to turn to, come and have a chat, we won’t try to sell you anything, because we’re not affiliated to any particular provider. Instead, we’ll listen to what your needs are, and base our recommendations on that.
Thanks for reading, Ben
