There’s an interesting dichotomy playing out in the tech sector. As all companies become tech companies and offer digital solutions to their customers, it’s vital that we remember to continue prioritizing what tech can achieve over what it can do. In other words: we need to focus on how technology can be used to solve unique business challenges.
When investing in or implementing any new technology, the focus should to be on the challenge that needs to be solved and the goals that need to be met – not the individual products, features, or tools that solve them.
More often than not, leaders in accountancy firms will be non-technical individuals who really need to understand the value of the product more so than how it works. They want to know how it reduces admin, frees up time, or helps them reach new markets, not about the intricacies of SDKs or APIs.
This change is good. Products are being vetted and selected based on the immediate, tangible benefits they bring to the organization—and it’s pushing accountancy leaders to consider which problems their own products and services solve.
In turn, businesses are becoming increasingly critical about what makes the most sense for their customers and their teams. They want to build custom solutions that really meet their needs, and this is where Power Platform helps both accountants and Microsoft partners shine.
