Digital assessment

We can help you choose and implement the right cloud based tools to automate your entire business.

Selecting and implementing the right technology in your business can be overwhelming and confusing. RSM provides a digital service around this process so that you can rely on a trusted adviser to streamline your business processes using the latest technology.

What is 'the Cloud'?

When people refer to the cloud, they are talking about applications that can be accessed in any web browser, and on phones and tablet devices using apps. Your information is hosted securely by the application provider. There are often monthly or annual subscription fees to use these applications.

What are the benefits?

  • Grow and scale using individual toolsDigital assessment
  • Meet your exact business needs
  • Keep your costs low and on a per user basis
  • Lower your IT budget long-term

How does being in the cloud streamline my business?

Many of these applications share information with each other, meaning that you only have to enter information in one place and it can update in multiple areas. Staff administration time can be reduced dramatically through automation of certain processes in your business.

Thinking beyond your accounting package

At RSM, we’re thinking about how your business operates beyond the accounting package that you’re using. Whether you’re already on cloud accounting or making the move, we use this as a starting point in moving other areas of your business to the cloud.

Our framework

We evaluate your business against a framework of over 35 areas to ensure that we have a deep understanding of your processes and existing technology:

  • accounts management
  • customer relationship management
  • email marketing management
  • email, calendar, contact and file storage management
  • expense management
  • human resource management
  • inventory management
  • password management
  • payment management
  • payroll management
  • project and task management
  • proposal management
  • reporting management
  • rostering and timesheet management
  • website management

Our digital audit process

Step one

A digital analyst will meet with you to review your existing applications and processes (cloud and non-cloud based) with support from your existing RSM contact.

Step two

We review your current situation and do the necessary research to make the right application recommendations for you.

Step three

You receive a digital audit report, which outlines our recommendations and action plan in writing. We will review this with you and work out your next steps.


Assistance with implementation and ongoing support

RSM is here to support you on your technology journey. Whether you choose to move to the cloud step by step or have a few changes in mind that need to happen at once, we will be here to walk you through the process and ensure that your implementation goes according to plan. Once you’re operating with your new technology, we can also provide ongoing support around your chosen applications.

Speak to your existing business adviser about undertaking a digital audit. They will walk you through the process and ensure that all your questions are answered.
