We spoke to Tushir Patel, Co-Founder & CEO at Capium about winning Small Business Accounting Software of the Year at this year’s Accounting Excellence awards.
How does it feel to win Small Business Accounting Software of the Year?
“It’s still sinking in, we’re pinching the award every day to check it’s real! We are truly thrilled to have won the big one – as are our Customers – it reinforces that our platform is making waves and cutting a course through the MTD-doldrums. Even just to be shortlisted alongside the big names that were up for this award was an honour.”
How will winning the 2019 Accounting Excellence Award for Small Business Accounting Software of the Year impact your firm?
“It goes a long way to reassure the Accounting market that Capium listens, and is the Small-Mid Sized Practices’ preferred choice for accounting software. The market is changing at a rapid pace and accounting firms embarking on their journey are going from strength-to-strength by moving their business to the cloud. We are proud to support them and they are proud they have made the right choice in backing Capium.”
What advice would you give to anyone entering the awards, or thinking of entering the awards next year?
“Capium has entered the awards for the last few years, it’s hard putting yourself out there and suffering defeat, but every year our team, product and customer base has grown stronger. It tastes even sweeter to finally win and that’s made the journey worth it.”
What does accounting excellence mean to you?
“It means not settling. For so long the accounting market has stood still and accepted what has been on offer – we don’t live by that dogma – and we’re excited a new standard of accounting will accelerate this market forward.”
