I’ll use the example of a sole practitioner with accountants. You can multiply the math out for your size firm. You’ll see that by implementing just three strategies you can free up to 4 hours per accountant per day – maybe more. With five accountants that’s 100 hours per week, or 4,500 hours+ per year.
