GP adopts a robot

by | Aug 3, 2018 | Blog | 0 comments

Major shifts in have hit almost every area of modern life. Somewhere, someone is trying to disrupt your /industry/life; perhaps even more than one! This concept of constant disruption also goes hand-in-hand with the saying “there’s an app for that”, which can either save time or waste it (good or bad, depending on your objective).

The disruptive forces of are also setting their hooks on and , long stalwarts of “same as last time” and “those who fear change.” GP has been on the Xero (for those who don’t know about click HERE)  bandwagon for over 5 years and just that one element of change has broadened our ability to serve our clients dramatically. Having a cloud based platform is just one way that brings the function closer to real time instead of a study of history. Therefore, we can say we welcomed that disruption with open arms.

As the function becomes more IRL real-time, there are time savings based on streamlined processes and the availability of more information. A bookkeeper would always work on a time delay, needing bank statements, receipts, and a large amount of other [paper] source documents to be able to close out a standard month’s worth of financial activity. There are apps that reduce the entire bookkeeping function (Expensify, AutoEntry) from [human] weeks to a robot software platform minutes or hours. By cost comparison, a bookkeeper and subscriptions to the latest automation software run about the same cost per month, but the killer robots software work on nights, weekends, and does not wear plaid! GP has adopted many of these automation programs into our processes, which allows us to turn the numbers around much quicker and provide actionable insight into your .

With all this newfound time on our hands and since the robots are working for us (at least for now), spends some of that time reviewing and testing new apps. Before we recommend any program/app/software to our client, we spend a considerable time testing and often times breaking the latest and greatest software. Once we have identified the quirks and moved past the integration hurdles, we start recommending the battle-tested apps to our clients. The most common side effect of our recommendations is longer, more frequent vacations for our clients. If you are wondering how to do more with less or want to see how a modern advisor can move your business into the future, is the way. Killer Robots included.

Unfortunately, I found GMP when my mother passed. She had a trust set up and I had no experience with one. I received excellent advice prior to filing taxes, that allow for the transfer of assets with little tax implication. The tax process was simple for me, Justin took over once he had details and cleared up all question from filing our taxes. Thank you for a job well done!read more

My partner and I started our very first small business last year. Justin has been a blessing to us. Being new at all of this, we didn’t understand much of how business taxes work. Justin explained and answer all of questions that we have. He took care of everything for us throughout the year and have made life so much easier for us. I couldn’t have asked for a better CPA. Highly recommended!read more
