MyFirmsApp’s customers hear it first
As Philip Hammond unveiled his first Spring Statement this afternoon, the MyFirmsApps team was busy updating over a thousand Apps so that a quarter of a million businesses would be amongst the first to get a live update from their accountants.
The independent, award-winning accountancy practice, Tait Walker has been working closely with the MyFirmsApp team to ensure that the changes in the Chancellor’s Spring Statement are quickly communicated to the customer base in real-time. 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. 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.
Joel Oliver, CEO, MyFirmsApp, commented: “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.”
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.
