“Last year, it felt like MTD had dampened innovation across the whole profession and in the software industry.”
Twelve months on, software suppliers are responding to to the challenge rather than being suppressed by it. Developers are now constantly discovering novel and interesting solutions to accountants’ problems, and we've seen several of those bear fruit this year.
MTD was just one challenge. Another was open banking integration. In 2018, no app is an island and many of the emerging apps are interconnected to other systems in an ecosystem using application programming interfaces - known within the business as APIs.
The best software solutions make problems go away for accountants and their clients, opening the door to new and better ways of working. Cutting-edge innovators are harnessing AI technology and machine learning tools to help businesses make better decisions. And they are changing the role of accountants from scorekeepers to trusted advisers who make a difference on the front line. It's these solutions we're proud to showcase this year.
