MyFirmsApp’s (www.myfirmsapp.com) clients became the first to hear the Chancellor by app in real-time as Philip Hammond unveiled his first Spring Statement.
“The speed with which this is now achievable demonstrates how new advances in App-driven technology are being used to power day-to-day processes and change the ways accountants interact with their clients,” explains Joel Oliver, CEO, MyFirmsApp.
“Before the development of Apps, accountants would update their clients with printed cards detailing the changes announced in the Budget but now, changes can be communicated with push notifications that are personalised messages and reach the selected recipient in seconds.”
The Spring Statement was short in length compared to the Budget in November and lasted less than 30 minutes. It contained economic and public finance forecasts and the Chancellor unveiled a series of consultations on future policies.
“Our priority is putting accountants first and helping them take advantage of the digital world for real-time communication with their clients. Using Apps to update clients frees up the accountant’s valuable time and allows them to focus on value-added work,” continued Oliver.
“MyFirmsApp gives accountancy firms an affordable branded presence in the mobile world on the devices of their clients and staff. Our App platform provides a suite of compliant and approved tax tools, calculators, mileage and income trackers, receipt management, finance news, calendars and push notifications that make direct communication easier.”
MyFirmsApp integrates with popular accounting software to ensure accountants are giving their clients the tools they need to succeed in an increasingly digital landscape. The monthly subscription covers all technical, tax and technological updates including changes made in the Spring and Autumn Statements.
