Overview

Northern Business Consultants (or ‘NBC’) is one of Brisbane North’s leading accounting firms and strategic business consultants – and our very first client. 

The team at NBC was striving to streamline their business systems with a strategy that would hold up into the foreseeable future. They sought a solution that would take their business IT to the next level with cloud computing.

As an accounting firm dealing with client financials, privacy and data security was one of , if not the most important considerations. Additionally, true mobility and the capability to cater to a developing offshore team was essential.

Through close engagement with NBC, we were able to dramatically better the firms internal workflows. With Office 365, the team is now truly mobile and can work from anywhere at anytime.

Clients of NBC have also benefited from our introduced systems with e-Signing that allows clients to review and sign their financial and business documents prepared by the NBC team within seconds – without printing a thing!
