Building trust: Added-value reporting

Part 4: In the fourth blog in our series on how to build trust in technology platforms so you feel confident recommending them to your accounting clients, we discuss the importance of added-value reporting.


This blog series provides a straightforward overview for accountants about what to look for when assessing a technology platform’s trustworthiness. In part 1, we looked at data protection from the get-go, while part 2 considered best practice security measures. Part 3 highlighted the collaborative features you should expect, and part 4 below discusses added-value reporting.

The importance of value-added reporting

Added-value reporting

Regular, robust, and accurate real-time digital reporting breeds confidence between a practice and its clients. And because new technology platforms treat data as a dynamic asset – and not statically confined to spreadsheet fields – you can automate the delivery of quick update reports or more comprehensive report packs, so these continuously flow and add value to your clients.

As well as automation, our Joiin platform offers a robust suite of digital reporting that includes pre-built templates which you can easily use with existing data. Such templates take the strain out of monthly consolidated group reporting while clawing back vital time to focus on more advisory work with your clients. These reports can also form an integral part of Joiin’s multi-client feature.

Using digital reporting to build a more incredible rapport with your clients and encourage collaboration is a compelling strategic argument for implementing any new technology platform.
