iPracticeApps


What makes iPracticeApps so unique?

Our philosophy when building iPracticeApps was not only to produce a beautiful looking app that has a whole lot of marketing functionality but, to go a step further and leverage off our technical knowledge around compliance systems like Nimbus, APS, Handisoft, MYOB etc to make an app that offered clients of accounting practices functionality so rich that they would use the App all the time.

“Our aim has always been to get the apps we build on the front screen of client’s smart phones because they use it so much.”

We also wanted to build apps that had a high level of customisation so practices get an app that reflects their culture and differentiates their practice. Since launching 4 months ago we have 43 practices on board who have trusted us to build their practice an app and have been humbled by the response.

A good practical example of our approach is the release of www.iPracticeHub.com as a system to manage all the tasks generated by the apps we build for Accounting practices.

Here are some of the task touch points clients can generate from the app that need to be managed:

  • Change of database requests

  • New client data form

  • Request to setup a portal account

  • Request a new Xero, MYOB, Quickbooks account

  • Referring a friend or colleague

  • Completing a survey

  • Sale of asset notification

  • Skype meeting request

  • Bank details request

  • Invoice payment advice

  • Submit a checklist

We are finding that once clients of Accounting practices have the convenience of just whipping their phone out of their pocket or handbag the app becomes very interactive. So you can see that having a workflow task system to manage app generated tasks becomes critical.

We have even included the option for push notification feedback to clients once their request has been completed. For example "Just a quick message to let you know Ron your database change request has been completed and all systems are now up to date". Its a great way to close the task app request loop.
