What is App Advisory Plus and why did we set it up?

App Advisory Plus was built on the back of frustrations at Farnell Clarke. Despite having lived and breathed cloud accounting since 2009, the vast array of new apps coming to market made it impossible to keep up to date for a mid sized accounting firm.

Whilst implementing an app stack for a client the Farnell Clarke team spent a number of hours trying discover how to integrate Receipt Bank, WorkflowMax and ApprovalMax. When multiple apps are involved it is a minefield to get to the right people to get the answers you need. Even with a comprehensive address book of contacts within Farnell Clarke it proved a struggle.

We know first-hand from our experiences the power of technology to transform the way businesses operate. We also know that the App ecosystem can be a bit overwhelming and this is the reason we built App Advisory Plus

App Advisory Plus has been designed to provide the answer for Farnell Clarke and any other accounting or bookkeeping firm that has encountered the same challenges.

Specifically App Advisory Plus has been created to support accountants and bookkeepers to deliver profitable app advisory services and provide increased value to clients by ensuring they make the most of technology to grow their businesses.
