Daniel Teacher from T-Tech looks at the common challenges that need to be considered and shares a few hacks to establishing successful internal and external collaboration, along with the pros and cons of digital collaborative working.
Typically, each department in an accountancy practice has its own way of working and communicating. The traditional accountancy practice is often hindered by a legacy of manual processes that are underpinned by outdated systems, and firms have become so used to having multiple systems and dissimilar processes that collaboration is a challenge and rarely exists in this environment. This leaves many accountants unaware of the ease and benefits of working in partnership.
As we advance further into the digital age, we have recognised that businesses want to attain an environment of productive teamwork, sustain a collaborative culture, and be secure and compliant, whilst ensuring their people have the right tools to do the job. This is apparent as the drive toward digitisation of core processes (such as personal tax, KYC, payroll etc.) is increasing within the sector.
