Marvin also sat down with a panel of speakers including Christian (Xero) , Scrubbed.net President Mark Pineda, and Maceda Valencia & Co. ESSS Senior Manager, Jefferson Simon as they talked about how the landscape of today’s accounting industry have been drastically changed since the emergence of cloud technology.
The panelists shared their insights when asked on what advice they could share with businesses in order to become successful in using Xero and adapting to technology:
Jefferson expressed his thoughts on technology, thinking of it as “the bandwagon that would move businesses forward” as he said:
“if you don’t ride this bandwagon, then you’ll get left behind”.
He also believes that Xero is the technology that would pave the way for the new era of the accounting industry, and that competition will be “stiff” as these technologies are being introduced to businesses, so what better way to achieve success is to change and adapt early.
Mark sounded off his insights, saying, “It’s about time for the Philippines to embrace technology, since not only it would make life easier for all, but it’s also good for the economy.”
While Christian encouraged guests to never fear using the latest cloud technologies around like Xero, as he said:
“Don’t be afraid to ask. Talk to us ‘cause we’re always willing to help especially when it comes to things that involves Xero.”
