What is the TaxAssist Practice Engine?
One of the key reasons to join a franchised network is the shared knowledge that you can tap into to save time, increase profitability and efficiencies and maximise success.
The TaxAssist Practice Engine is a major initiative to deliver best practices, systems and capabilities to TaxAssist Accountants franchisees. It has been developed in collaboration between experts at the TaxAssist Support Centre and a working party of franchisees who all contributed to the system.
With the evolution of the TaxAssist brand as a leading high street tax, accounting and advisory brand, and with new service offerings being rolled out, ‘The Practice Engine’ is a central tool to accelerate growth and add value to franchisees’ businesses.
The best practice guides focus on:
- Training and tools to help franchisees to run an effective, efficient and profitable business
- Software integrations
- Business planning
- Performance tracking
- Practice Key Performance Indicators
- User Voice (franchisee feedback forum)
- Capacity planning
- Smart onboarding processes
- Effective client experience advice
In all, the guides allow a franchisee to manage and monitor the performance of their accounting practice in a way that suits their style of management.
A live, breathing system that is constantly being updated, The Practice Engine is contributed to by the ‘User Voice’ a forum for franchisees and their teams to put forward ideas and examples of what has worked well within their practice.
For example, as software companies constantly launch new developments of their systems, it’s impossible for everyone to become an expert overnight, but there will be team members and franchisees who enjoy exploring any new changes which they can then report back on and quite often validates the decision on whether to adopt this into the practice or wait until the update is more defined.
The collective knowledge of over 1,200 accountants, tax experts, bookkeepers, payroll professionals and other key professionals is incredibly powerful and harnessing this for the TaxAssist network is bringing about huge benefits.
