We are delighted to announce that Cornish Accounting Solutions have been named as finalists in the 2018 Edge awards.
The Cornwall Live Edge Awards celebrate Cornwall’s place as one of the fastest-growth areas for digital and tech businesses in the country. This year, they are highlighting digital innovation across a number of sectors where Cornwall is leading the way.
One such sector is ‘fintech’ – financial technology – where software and technology are used to enhance and facilitate working in finance.
As anyone that knows us will testify, technology has always been at the core of our business model. While other accounting firms were slow on the uptake, we immediately saw the innovative potential of cloud accounting for our clients and were one of the first 250 companies in the entire country (now 4,500) to become a partner for the award-winning Xero platform. Named as the region’s first ever Gold Partner, we have been able to introduce this software to our clients and dramatically reduce administration time, remove the need for data entry, and allow them access to their accounts wherever they are located.
But we don’t just offer technology to our clients; it is integral to our own business purposes too. Always keen to explore innovations, we use Trello for our job planning, Yammer for internal messaging, Skype and Zoom for virtual meetings, ReceiptBank for invoice storage, and many more. Where we find a solution that is particularly effective, we are perfectly positioned to introduce it to our clients where suitable.
We are honoured to be named as a finalist in this ever-growing field, and we’ve been up against some fantastic Cornish businesses.
Now through to the finals, could Cornish Accounting Solutions get the gong? It looks like we’ll have to wait until Thursday 15th of November to find out!
