When Adam approached Incommand for help he knew that having good accounts were important but he was frustrated about being unable to find the time to talk with clients, suppliers and staff to grow the business. Adam had a clear vision for his company but felt hamstrung by the time he spent on tracking his contractor payments, sending invoices and collecting debtors.
Adam is the owner of Glide Property (GP) who furnish and maintain short-term residential accommodation that is tailored for the specific needs of their corporate clients. GP helps their clients find suitable properties to suit the work needs of their personnel when visiting Perth for business.
Prior to working with Incommand GP were sending invoices from Word and using Excel to monitor their expenses and calculate GST and other obligations. Incommand provided Adam with an online accounting system. It enables him to raise purchase orders and invoices from his I-Phone. They're emailed immediately to his suppliers and customers. Incommand back this up with their 'Below The Soil' team entering and organising payment for the supplier invoices, following up his debtors when they are due and managing the payroll, super, leave and tax for his casual staff. Incommand prepare the BAS and help him ensure his other tax compliance obligations.
Adam can access GP's accounts in real time from any computer that has an Internet connection – just like using Internet banking. He says "I had no time for working on my business instead of in my business. I know other business owners using different software systems but still they seemed to be in the same situation. Incommand give me the tools that allow me to know exactly what is going on. I'm in control of the business because they have allowed me to direct my energy to improving profitability and growing my customer base. Because I know the costs up-front I can easily plan – in fact the extra money I've made easily covers my investment".
Incommand has worked with other advisors and accountants to maximise the benefit of existing relationships. In Adam's case a plan was agreed based on a system that would meet his budget and a 'Below the Soil" team was allocated to work with him behind the scenes. Adam's team has enabled him to work more closely with his suppliers and staff to provide a better service for his customers. "There is no doubt that Glide is growing faster through working with INCOMMAND" Adam commented. "I have my own team of helpful advisors, just behind me, that I can rely on to keep Glide growing and take us to the next level".
