09/10/2017On 1st October, we hosted a ‘Leveraging
Technology to Drive Business Success,’ event at Timber Lodge Cafe, Queen Elizabeth
Olympic Park, Stratford. Over 40 business owners attended the event which provided
expert insights and practical guidance on the latest business technology that
is enabling businesses to gain a competitive advantage and become more responsive
to the ever increasing demands of a competitive marketplace.

The seminar featured presentations from two
recognised leaders in business technology, both with proven track records of
facilitating business success;

Andrew Collings from Xero, leaders in online
accounting software, presented some of the platforms unique features that are
enabling business owners to gain better financial control, including; the
dashboard where bank balances, invoices, bills and expense claims can be viewed
at the same time; online invoicing software that enables scheduled bill
payments and professional recurring invoices; and automatically tracked
payments, returns and credits that reduce manual labour and increase
productivity.

Iskren Kulev of iZettle, an innovative card payment
and point of sale software solution for small businesses, gave an excellent presentation
on how these payment services and apps are helping businesses to gain a
competitive edge. He demonstrated how
both card and cash payments can be taken using a smartphone or tablet;
how products can be added into the app and organised in folders to speed up
payments and easily track sales; and how the software provides the flexibility
to give customers receipt via email or print.

Gary White, Business Development Director at CBHC,
also took to the floor to present some useful software packages that are
driving business success, including Evernote; a versatile document storage
solution that not only enables you to keep the physical and digital details of
a project with you at any time, but also facilitates collaboration by enabling
you to share information in real-time; Market IQ; a brilliant piece of software
for collecting business intelligence, whose reports can be obtained by
companies for free, via CBHC; and Chaser; an automated credit control system
which links in with Xero and sends emails reminders regarding unpaid invoices
automatically so you can have confidence in your cashflow and spend less time
chasing invoices.

Gary said, “At
CBHC, we pride ourselves on going beyond the traditional accountancy remit to
provide business owners with access to the latest innovative strategies that
drive success. We believe that it is critical for today’s businesses to adapt
quickly to new advances in business technology and to determine how they can
utilise these innovative solutions to simplify business processes, streamline
business operations, provide a better customer experience and importantly
generate increased sales and growth.”

“The seminar
provided the perfect platform for knowledge sharing and learning best practice
from technology experts who are providing business owners with the tools to
drive their business forward. We received an overwhelming amount of positive
feedback from attendees who were able to gain a good understanding of how these
technologies can be implemented in their business to overcome their own
real-world challenges.”
