By the end of 2015, our dedicated functions were in form; the next step was to set an aligned direction. As it stood, Accodex Partners’ mission was, “To improve the way business gets done.” *Yawn* Philosophically this is correct, but the words are enough to put a room full of auditors to sleep.
Before I started the business, I was working as an analyst for a multi-billion dollar company. They had about 100 people just like me, grabbing reports from legacy systems and copy pasting data into spreadsheets to turn it meaningful information for the board and management team. The process was expensive and time-consuming. Moreover, this kind of intelligence was reserved for the billion dollar company’s that could afford a small army of finance analysts. Since I started the company, I’ve noticed a fascinating trend. This intelligence is becoming cheaper and more accessible every day. I first wrote about this phenomena on my LinkedIn 2015. After much interest, I elaborated on GoingConcern’s blog and again on Accountant’s Daily. Although we’re not quite there yet, these days a startup company can have the same level of business intelligence, often better for a fraction of the cost.
