novi AMS® founder and QuickBook Certified ProAdvisor Pete Zimek discusses the role of technology in workplace automation and financial risk reduction with Steel Rose of CPA Magazine.

How does technology help CPA firms?

“Well first I think technology really automates things that we spend an inordinate amount of time doing by hand.  We’ve got some of our clients that report their staff spending 20, 30, even 40 hours per week, just on basic data entry.  The challenge is, not only is it that time consuming and expensive, but it also is a place to bring in risk. If you think about it, if you’ve got lots of manual data entry, its a place where people can make mistakes, or even worse.”
