Unleashed Software has launched a new Referral Partner Programme for UK accountancy practices seeking to develop their advisory services. The new programme enables accountancy firms to gain a competitive advantage by providing clients with advice on optimising their inventory processes via the Unleashed Software platform.
Used by thousands of businesses worldwide, the cloud based software makes inventory management easier and more efficient, allowing businesses to take control of their stock control processes and scale with confidence.
Unleashed integrates with market leading cloud-based applications like Xero and QuickBooks Online, enabling accountants to advise clients on an end-to- end business solution. It is particularly relevant for accountancy practices whose customers include manufacturers, wholesalers, distribution companies and retailers.
The new Referral Partner Programme is ideally suited to progressive accountancy firms that have recognised the need to take advantage of the time efficiencies technology can bring. It enables them to create new income streams by offering a greater range of advisory services in areas such as budgeting, cashflow and data analytics as more businesses undertake their own bookkeeping with cloud-based software.
Accountancy partners are provided with training and customer support tailored to their needs. This includes access to the Unleashed application and online ‘Partner Portal’, regular updates and newsletters, referral partner materials and support for client events. Both advisors and their clients can access real-time data from practically anywhere, at any time, to set and track efficiency goals.
Stephen Jones, Head of Partnerships for Unleashed Software says: “Accountants looking to stay ahead are already creating additional revenue streams for their businesses to boost firm growth and differentiate from the competition. We have decided to make this easier by creating a bespoke partnership solution that helps accountancy firms achieve revenue growth through a focus on client advisory services.”
Stephen also sees a growing demand for data analysis technology from business owners to help them to understand their own business in real-time. He adds: “Opportunity awaits for accountancy firms who can offer a range of services that help clients make better business decisions. Progressive partnerships can embrace the opportunities that cloud-based services offer, particularly those which integrate with established real-time accountancy platforms such as Xero and QuickBooks Online. Those who rely on more traditional platforms such as Sage Desktop will be missing out.”
Paula Nurse from MHA Carpenter Box agrees. She said: “Unleashed Software allows us, as accountants, the ability to easily see how the stock has been computed and advise our clients proactively, moving away from traditional accounting services.”
David Oliver from Valued Accountants, who works with business owners throughout the UK and Ireland, has also collaborated previously with Unleashed Software. Welcoming the new Partner Programme, he says: “As a Xero-based practice, we recommend Unleashed Software to our retail and manufacturing clients. It’s a robust, easy to use system and with UK-based support from their Bristol HQ, it’s a real win for our clients and for ourselves.”
Tim Johnson, Managing Director, Pro-point Equipment Ltd in West Sussex adds: “We used Sage as our accounts programme for the past 15 years and always felt there must be something better suited in the cloud, something that could handle not just the money but the stock control, margin management, etc. As a small company with ten members of staff and thousands of transactions, we needed something nimble, easy and accurate. Our accountants recommended we use Unleashed Software in conjunction with Xero – what a great fit! My staff are happy and I am happy. We are very impressed from the switch-over of historical data to the day to day information running which Unleashed provides.”
Unleashed Software was recognised as the ‘Industry-Specific App of the Year’ at Xerocon 2017. For further information about its new Partner Programme, please visit the Referral Partner page.
