Accounting Apps Podcast| formerly Cloud Stories | Accounting Technology

“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.

Whos is Helen Goodman?

For over 20 years Helen Goodman worked in the corporate sector as a Management Accountant and Business Analyst, for companies such as the mobile communications giant ‘Vodafone’ and for the healthcare leaders ‘Abbott Laboratories’ until moving to Australia in 2001. Being a passionate management accountant at heart and perfectionist by nature, an early adopter of cloud technology, Helen’s warm vibes shine, not only from her enthusiasm and never say never attitude, but also from her genuine work ethic. As a Cloud Integrator Helen facilitates businesses to adopt the cloud and become more efficient, have access to information like never before and provide them with a competitive advantage.

Invisible Business Solutions was founded in 2012, with the core goal of providing financial management to Small Business. We were amongst the first to be recognised as a Xero Authorised Cloud Integrator when the new market channel was launched in August 2015.

Our reputation as an Authorised Cloud Integrator has grown, based on our experience, commitment and standard of excellent customer service. We are proud to be MINDBODY’s first partner in Australia to provide implementation, training and support for clients in the Health & Wellness Industry. We are also partners with ServiceM8, WorkflowMAX and Unleashed, but pride ourselves on our independence and Ecosystem knowledge.
