Moore Stephens maximises client collaboration with Stream portal

Moore Stephens Victoria launches client portal Stream

Moore Stephens Victoria today launched Stream; its cloud-based client portal that maximises collaboration by providing shared access to real-time business data integrated seamlessly with bookkeeping, accounting and business advisory support services.

Designed to meet growing client demand for software solutions that improve efficiencies in business and accounting processes, Stream combines Moore Stephens Victoria’s cloud integration support capability, with its knowledge of SMEs gleaned from over 50 years’ servicing the mid-market. 
The result is a highly secure ecosystem of the clients applications stored in one spot providing clients with single sign on and access to over 4000 cloud-based applications including Xero, Office365 and Salesforce using a single login; optimising efficiency and business performance.

Additional Stream features include a document management system to enhance collaboration with the Moore Stephens team, integrated calendar functionality, a dashboard displaying critical business data in real-time and access to their dedicated team at Moore Stephens.

Moore Stephens Victoria’s Chief Executive, Steve Sakkas, said the end-to-end Stream solution demonstrated Moore Stephens Victoria’s understanding of the key business challenges facing SMEs, as well as its commitment to assist clients of all sizes to build better businesses.

“Our primary focus at Moore Stephens Victoria is understanding our clients’ business, enabling us to tailor our products and services to meet their specific needs,” he said. “Stream is an extension of this philosophy; a secure, scalable technology platform that streamlines business data for clients and gives them an information edge, while simultaneously allowing us to work closely with them to service their specific accounting and advisory needs.”

“Stream will help our clients to grow their businesses by improving business processes, reducing costs in the long term and improving access to a wider range of professional business advisory services,” he said.
While Moore Stephens Victoria had built its practice on a strong understanding of the mid-market, Moore Stephens Victoria Associate Director and Stream project lead, Amy Riddell, said Stream’s scalability and flexibility means it would also appeal to large enterprises looking for business data and accounting services technology solutions that can be deployed quickly and cost effectively.

“We believe Stream out-performs any other accounting client services software solution in the market today for its security, scalability and affordability,” she said.  “Our Stream-based clients have realised significant efficiencies following migration, particularly where we employed systems that support automated processes and integrated them with operational add-ons such as sales or inventory systems. That is why utilising the cloud to achieve a seamless integration of the client’s data with our dedicated bookkeeping, accounting and advisory teams is a key focus of Stream.”

Ms Riddell concluded that, while the solution would deliver business process efficiencies, maximising collaboration opportunities through the portal would ensure the most value possible was derived from Stream.
“While SMEs are becoming increasingly aware of the power of cloud-based software solutions to enhance business processes, utilising the platform to enhance collaboration is critical to realising Stream’s full potential,” she said.  “We designed the solution to enhance collaboration with our clients, greatly increasing the added value proposition of our client services teams.” 

Moore Stephens Victoria confirmed a number of additional Stream features currently under development would be introduced over the next six months, including electronic signatures, message boarding, payment systems, chat bots, industry benchmarking and investment dashboards.
