From numbers guru to financial coach. Xerius and TOCO join forces for a new role for accountants.
Antwerp and Ghent, 13 May 2019 - Xerius and TOCO will actively assist and inspire bookkeepers and accountants so they can better help their customers achieve their ambitions. The current wave of digitalisation offers many new opportunities.
While new technologies, and even banks, are taking over repetitive tasks, the modern SME needs more personal advice and a clear insight into their business figures. As a result of the time freed up by automation, bookkeepers and accountants are able to communicate better with their customers and thus provide an appropriate service. Reinventing oneself is not a must, but rather a logical and natural evolution for the profession.
The market is also asking for an all-in-one solution: accounting package, communication module, easy connection with service providers, social secretariats, and integration with reporting tools, such as e.g. Silverfin. TOCO is such a collaborative instrument. It is an online platform that gives the company direction, while the bookkeeper remains in control and has more time to advise the entrepreneur.
Xerius is now joining this new portal and will become an integrated TOCO functionality. In the TOCO solution, Xerius now provides an up-to-date overview of the SME’s social contributions. The entrepreneur will also be informed when he has to pay these. Moreover, accountants can easily connect with their customers, right from the portal. In the long run, entrepreneurs will even be able to onboard to Xerius via TOCO.
Franky Haesevoets, Managing Director, Xerius: "Today's customer is looking for an integrated solution that gives him a clear overview of how his company is performing at a glance. At Xerius, we strongly believe in platforms such as TOCO to connect with our customers. And very important, the bookkeeper or accountant always has an overview of the status of the customer. This will strengthen his advisory role."
Philippe Kimpe, CEO, TOCO: "Our mission is to become the entrepreneur’s financial compass. The collaboration with Xerius is an enormous step forward on the road to a more efficient management of every SME".
