Plugging the gap: The pros and cons of building your own accounting tech in-house

Have you ever thought about developing your own tech?

Maybe there’s a gap in your workflow that some of the existing software providers just can’t fill?

For these 3 firms, that gap became too big, and so they took tech development into their own hands…

Joining us on this panel to share their experience are 3 practice pioneers that have plugged the gap by developing their own tech in-house: 

  • Lucy Cohen – Co-Founder of Mazuma
  • Alastair Barlow – CEO & Co-Founder of flinder
  • Jonathan Gaunt – Director of FD works and Co-Founder of Xavier Analytics (now Dext Precision) 

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • Where are some of the biggest gaps in existing tech right now?
  • What technology they’re building and why?
  • What are the costs of doing this and how can other firms get started?
  • Could tech development between firms shape the future of accounting tech?

If you’re interested in learning more about the potential of building your own tech to plug the gaps then don’t miss this reveal-all session from 3 people who are doing it right now.
