It’s time we talk tech. In this episode, I interview Jesse Rubenfeld, Founder and CEO of FinOptimal, and Tom Zehentner, Director of Growth. In our book, Prepare Your CPA Firm For A Sale we discuss how automation can be a tool for capacity and while it can be an initial investment in time, it usually helps the whole organization use their time on more lucrative and client-focused work.
With these guys, we dive deep into the topic of automation including the three main characteristics of an automated process. Jesse and Tom recognize existing technology in the accounting industry while highlighting the need for more tech adoption.
