At Silverfin we’re trying to apply the promise of software to the age-old industry of accounting. With our SaaS we’re automating a large chunk of the busy-work that accountants are currently handling manually, and are building new tools so they can provide better services to their customers. We aim to optimize their workflow in such a way that accountants can spend more time on the much more impactful and rewarding work of advising their customers, the business owners.

The good news is we’re succeeding in doing exactly that. Every day more than 15,000 financial service professionals use Silverfin to help and advise more than 200,000 businesses. Our customers adore us! The even better news is there’s still plenty left to work on, and that’s where we hope you come in.

The challenge

We have it on good authority that accountants around the world have been trying to move more into the advisory space for the past 30 years. Often other things get in the way and business owners aren’t willing to pay their accountant for the time it’d take to create meaningful proposals and give advice. Even if time wasn’t a constraint, finding relevant data points and working out when to get in touch with a client is equally challenging.

At Silverfin, we’re in a unique position to change all that, leveraging the power of data. We’ve already built powerful reporting tools that can provide real insight and help our customers make their customers more successful. We’ve only scratched the surface of what’s possible, however, and we’re now looking to mature this feature set to drive lasting revenue for our customers and Silverfin from it.
