Last week team 2Shakes created and presented a paper mock-up of our solution to a bookkeeper. It showed them how our digital sign up form might work, and was great for getting some initial feedback. We will be asking for more feedback from bookkeepers this week to find out what is most valuable for them, and hence where to start making it better for bookkeepers.
We asked bookkeepers if they had issues getting set up to represent their clients. Below are some of the sorts of things we heard….
Over the last week team 2shakes has been talking to bookkeepers around NZ to understand how they interact with government. It’s been a busy week, and very rewarding – all together we spoke with 24 bookkeepers.
Bookkeepers are wonderful!
…it’s better for everyone!
We’ve just completed week 4 on the R9 Accelerator. Team 2Shakes is pivoting. We are going to make it better for bookkeepers!
