Leverage, a cloud accounting company based in Los Angeles, launched this week as the accounting industry continues its evolution from being a traditionally in-person service to becoming predominantly virtual and cloud-based– a fact that is benefiting professionals, startups and small businesses globally.
Los Angeles, California – October 3, 2016
The October 3rd launch of Leverage, a boutique cloud accounting firm in Los Angeles, is a sign of things to come as the evolution, dare we say disruption, of the accounting industry continues its slow trek from a traditionally in-house service to one that is 100% virtual and cloud-based. And according to Michelle Richardson, founder and CEO of Leverage, this steady movement online is proving to offer a noticeable competitive advantage to all of her clients.
“We see cloud accounting as an opportunity to make the power and expertise of full accounting departments accessible to everyone,“ says Richardson. “By working remotely and focusing on the integration of multiple cloud-based softwares, we are able to offer professionals, startups and small businesses possibilities and a level of service that was previously only available to much larger companies.”
These benefits combined with the swell in numbers of businesses opting for online service has the entire accounting industry taking notice. In a recent Sage survey, 73% of accountants say use of online services will represent the biggest shift in their working practices over the next three years. And 41% identify online accountancy services as an offering they would like to offer in the next 12 months.
When asked if Leverage is playing the upstart role of disruptor, Richardson says, “Disruption is a strong word, even if that may be what is happening at some level. Honestly, we just focus on how to best serve our current and future clients in a way that gives them peace of mind and empowers them to live their lives to the fullest. Moving traditional brick and mortar style businesses online seems to transform them into something they previously weren’t. So, yes, companies like Leverage could be considered disruptors in the fields of bookkeeping and accounting– but we still have a healthy respect for the shoulders we’re standing on.”
