"In 2018, bolting on cloud services and other new technology isn’t enough for a practice to be considered truly innovative."
Today’s most innovative firms have gone beyond the use of technology for basic bookkeeping. Some take inspiration from other industries – notably tech startups – to identify new tools and new ways of working.
Technology is also helping firms track customer queries and response times. Thanks to custom dashboards and reports, it’s enabling firms to give clients better visibility of key finance data, management information and KPIs.
The most innovative firms don’t just have one-to-one relationships with clients. Innovative practices provide repositories of information in the form of text-based content, videos and podcasts, as well as interactivity via social media.
Innovative firms are using all available digital platforms to create a true community of active, engaged businesses and encourage networking.
The world of accountancy is transforming, driven by changing regulation and advances in technology – and accountants are using this change as a reason to innovate their practice.

You are not just an accountant – a ‘number cruncher’ – you are your clients’ trusted guide, confidant, and even dream maker, attributes that make you pioneers in the accountancy industry. We are proud to sponsor an award that reflects the hard work of the most innovative practices
