ACL18 Speaker Sessions: Lauren Amos


Lauren Amos joined AccountancyManager in December 2017 as Sales Executive. Lauren will be hosting 2 sessions at Accounting Live this November, so we sat down with her to find out more about her background and what you can learn from her at the show.  

What is your talk about at the show?
Growing fast while doing less.

What new skills/knowledge can people expect to walk away from your talk with?
I hope to motivate people to improve the processes within their business, while also taking advantage of every marketing channel.

How do you see accountancy processes changing in the next few years?
With Making Tax Digital on the horizon, accountants will be forced to take a hard look at their current processes. The increase in deadlines will mean more admin and more chasing.
 

Do you think that accountants and practice are embracing technology?
From talking with hundreds of accountants at Accountex and other accountancy conferences, I’ve noticed that they’re blown away by what technology can do for them. It’s very easy for accountants to stay so busy as to never look at what’s out there. When they take the time, they want in.
 
What is the biggest mistake that you see accountants make, and how can they fix this?
Accountants often struggle to invest the initial time required to improve their processes. If they manage to make that initial investment, it pays off massively for them. Often my role is to encourage accountants to make that time.
 
How does AccountancyManager’s automated process help accountants?
AccountancyManager has automation tools (e.g. automated record requesting and tax payment reminders) to reduce the day-to-day admin of an accountant and we estimate it saves at least 1 hour per client every month. It’s been designed for accountants by accountants and we’re constantly introducing new features. We’ve recently been shortlisted for the Accounting Excellence Software Innovation Award, due to our continued efforts to ‘reduce the administration to zero’.
