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.

Chris Hooper the CEO  of  Accodex

“I honestly believe that accountants have the ability to change the world, they just don't realise it yet.

I am in the business of predicting the future of the accounting profession, and it's my mission in life to change the accounting game forever.

Some of the ways I am working toward my mission are: 
• Leading by example with my company Accodex, a support platform for freelance accountants.
• Teaching and mentoring accounting and business students that are going to change the world.
• Writing and speaking about accounting industry trends”

In this episode, we talk about . . .

  • Chris wanted to be able to write his own destiny and work as hard as he wanted too
  • How google research led him to embrace the title of an Accounting Futurist
  • And how the freelance accountant in this cloud era is simply a laptop and internet connection, with the ability to work from anywhere on the planet. They can take on as many or as few clients as they want too. They are in control of the scope in services they offer, and also the type of clients they work with.
  • Chris thought process behind choosing Apps, and the war he sees happening in the Reporting App market
  • Accountants need to to be client-facing earlier in their career
  • economic sort of trend called Mimetic Isomorphy, which refers to the tendency of an organization to imitate another organization's structure because of the belief that the structure of the latter organization is beneficial.
