We help your firm save up to 60% of your cost and help you grow as efficiently as possible through our trained and qualified accountants & bookkeepers. These accountants work for you live, Easter Standard Time, in the same style and manner as an in-house accountant would. Think of us as your virtual employees working from outside the office with a pay starting at only CAD$11.00 per hour!
You can hire us for a fixed number of hours in a month or you can have a dedicated virtual employee working exclusively for you and under direct supervision.
Key elements of working with your live Obox Accountant:
4 Client Data access sharing options:
» Support Software – Software such as Dropbox, Google Drive or Onedrive. With these software programs you would be placing scanned or PDF copies of files on the cloud and giving your virtual employee access at the location without the need for them to download anything.
» The Management Portal – Obox Solution has launched its own secure portal that will allow you to exchange files directly with your Virtual Employee who will be able to access the files through their secure login.
» Cloud Data Management Software – Software such as Hubdoc, Receipt Bank or Expensify. These software programs have revolutionised bookkeeping allowing accountants to receive documents from clients through cloud and get automated access to bank statements through online banking. For your virtual employee, you can create their own access through the Obox email or your own email server.
» Remote Desktop Application Access – This system allows the virtual employee to log in remotely to a system that you have in your office or if you use your own remote access with a third party server provider. This essentially allows us to work without any data being transferred offshore or on cloud. It remains where it is and we are virtually coming in to work on it.
» Cloud Accounting Software – Cloud accounting software can be accessed through a simple login access set up for the virtual employee/team.
» Desktop Accounting Software – Back-up files of desktop accounting software can be shared between yourself and the virtual employee through “The Management Portal” or “Support Software.” Alternatively, the desktop software can also be accessed directly through a “Remote Desktop Application” at your office, which would mean the bookkeeping is performed from within your office.
2 ways you can manage this:
» Communication Software – You can communicate live via communication softwares such as Skype, Slack, and Google Hangouts or Management softwares such as Asana, Trello etc. You can even manage the whole experience via emails if you prefer. Queries are of course maintained on the Accounting Software as well.
» The Management Portal – The Obox Solution Management Portal allows all communication with your virtual employee live through the Management Portal or a mobile application.
Your virtual employee will log timesheets to clock hours either through www.tsheets.com (an Intuit Quickbooks owned timesheets software) or through the Management Portal. The instant clock-in clock-out system gives you access to reports of the hours being spent on each of your clients allowing you to gauge exactly how much time and money is being spent on each job. Obox Solution sets high standards of productivity. We let you gauge what’s acceptable and even allow requests to reduce hours where you feel too much time has been spent.
At Obox Solution, we have qualified and trained certified accountants with various levels of work experience. We believe that aptitude is as important as qualification and experience. All our team members have been hand-picked through a careful selection process which filters in accountants who are critical thinkers and problem solvers.
You can pick from 3 categories of experience when choosing, from amongst the team, who your Virtual Accountant will be. A glimpse of what each category means in terms of productivity and expertise…
