Roger at Digital Transformation

Roger was recently asked to speak at the Digital Transformation Forum, which took place in May this year. The topic was an interesting one for ambitious small businesses, for it addressed the subject of how outsourcing can enable SMEs to cater to larger clients. 

Xledger is an excellent example for us at Essendon. We love working with family businesses, but we also thrive on servicing larger concerns. Our challenge is their needs are different. They’re more complex and they require far more evidence of tight control. To cater effectively to them, we need a different accounting package. Xledger is ideal because it’s scalable, offers real-time reporting, and facilitates multi-dimensional insights that accounting packages for smaller businesses don’t. It also has a common configuration that we can use across multiple clients, and this saves us a lot of time in onboarding and ongoing account management. 

What’s our message to you here? It’s simply this… If you’re an aspiring SME, there is no reason why you can’t offer services to much larger organisations. And when you get it right, you’ll find you can still maintain the SME personal touch that matters. 

We’ll keep you posted on other events Roger’s asked to speak at. He always gives us food for thought!
