Accounting Apps Podcast | Accounting Technology | formerly Cloud Stories

“Cloud Stories is the world’s coolest accounting podcast” A guy on the Internet told me this once, and I choose to believe him!

The Cloud Stories podcast explores how business solutions integrate with online accounting software (Xero, MYOB and or QBO), and can, in turn, automate processes and improve productivity and profitability. By sharing Cloud Stories from the community listeners gain insights into how small businesses and advisory services can thrive in a brave new world of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robots.

Over the years, Heather Smith has interviewed Accountants • Bookkeepers • Business Consultants • Cloud Advisors • Cloud Integrators • Developers • Small Business Owners • and Solution Providers • who have generously shared their own Cloud Story on the popular podcast.

I had a cushy corporate job as a Project Manager at Cap Gemini. The people were great, the role was enjoyable & I had a secure career. As is the nature of the corporate structure (and my impatience), my career progression was not at the pace I wanted.

This frustration led to a conversation with an old friend over a BBQ and a beer, which resulted in us both quitting our jobs and starting a company.

The next day was quite the hangover…

We purchased BlueHub a Software Development and Integrations company. Up to this last year, our focus was on bespoke development until we made the move to Xero.
BlueHub focused on software development for over ten years. The cost of bespoke priced us out of smaller businesses.

We began using “off the shelf” cloud products to manage BlueHub. We started using Xero and WorkflowMax. Once we saw how good these cloud-based systems were, we asked ourselves;

“Why are we reinventing the wheel?”

We started testing a range of Xero Add-ons & cloud systems, re-marketing to lost clients and spread the word of affordable Cloud.

The uptake was incredible! We found a solution that cut the costs, sped up the delivery and increased the amount of people we could help.

Now we help clients across sectors find, set-up and integrate cloud systems. From our past, we are able to assist users with complex integrations.
