How Technology Has Transformed Our Accounting Firm

Smart Phones and iPads and Video Conferencing, Oh My! It’s no secret that our personal and professional lives have changed dramatically in recent years, driven by technology. The accounting industry is no exception. There’s been a significant shift in the way we serve our clients at Gilmore Jasion Mahler, LTD. For many of the Firm’s business and individual clients, paper tax returns are but a memory. The documents are now often sent digitally, provided via email or on a flash drive.  

Another major shift has come for some of our clients including physician offices and other healthcare entities that rely on us for their accounting and bookkeeping needs. Gilmore Jasion Mahler’s cloud-based client portal GJM Connect saves them time and headaches.

“They are able to connect with us in real time 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s helping improve efficiencies on their end and is as easy as banking or shopping online,” says GJM Partner Linda Hillstrom.

It’s also secure and convenient. GJM Connect offers clients round-the-clock access from any internet connection in the world.  The online portal allows for file sharing and accounting/bookkeeping work. Encryption, secure password protection and other measures bring heightened security.

Technology has also created a shift in the way Gilmore Jasion Mahler staff members do their work. Working from home and remote locations has never been easier. Video conferencing allows for more face to face time between GJM’s Maumee and Findlay offices. Cloud-based document storage has done away with the need for large filing cabinets, allowing access to archived documents with a click of the mouse.

Online communication helps clients and the public stay informed on tax law changes and other timely information that may affect their businesses. Digital newsletters, email alerts and social media messaging from GJM bring industry-specific information to those in manufacturing & distribution, construction, real estate & utilities and healthcare. Additional digital newsletters are specific to litigation and valuation and general tax information.

It truly is a whole new Technicolor world. We’re definitely not in Kansas, anymore, and that’s a good thing for the staff and clients of Gilmore Jasion Mahler, LTD.
