Wolters Kluwer in Belgium and TOCO will work together to better help Entrepreneurs and Accountants with accounting

"Let every user generate an impact faster for his organization"

18th of November, 2019 – Wolters Kluwer, enters into a collaboration with TOCO. This is a start-up from Ghent, which offers a platform that helps entrepreneurs, bookkeepers and accountants to organize and optimize their work as efficiently as possible.

Today, many bookkeepers, accountants and entrepreneurs deal with an ever-increasing financial burden. This creates a lack of structure. In order to tackle that problem and to extend the robust user experience for customers of its accounting, tax and office software, Wolters Kluwer Belgium will collaborate with the Ghent start-up TOCO. TOCO is a platform that helps simplify financial administration for SMEs and accountants thanks to software specially developed for this purpose.

Wolters Kluwer, Tax & Accounting, Belgium will create open integration opportunities between its software and the platform that TOCO has developed. Through more efficient communication and the easy exchange of documents such as invoices and official declarations, the cooperation between accountants and entrepreneurs can be greatly optimized and digitized. As a result, we meet the demands and expectations of our users and we help them to quickly and correctly generate impact for their organization in a smooth, intuitive way. As a result of the collaboration, any end user would be able to reap the benefits of the long history of Wolters Kluwer domain expertise and domain knowledge.

“Our strengths complement each other perfectly, so that we will support our customers – independent bookkeepers, accountancy offices and entrepreneurs – even better in their daily financial reporting. By opening integration between our software packages and the TOCO platform, the end user can have a more user-friendly, digital experience,” says Ronny De Goedt, Managing Director for Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting Belgium.

By integrating TOCO in Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting Belgium software packages, a lot of information will be able to automatically flow from the platform to the software packages, which means that every user will work more efficiently. Adding documents to their file faster helps ensure that entrepreneurs can consult updated financial insights more often and faster. The TOCO platform also allows you to make payments. TOCO, for example, has the option to pay with QR codes and a PSD2 license is now also being applied for.

 “We are proud that Wolters Kluwer Belgium offers us this opportunity. Our software supports accounting firms and SMEs in their daily administration and communication. We want to form an easily understandable financial compass and to relieve the end customer as much as possible. The automated process saves time for the accountant, which means that they can invest more time in providing advice to the end customer, ”says Philippe Kimpe, CEO of TOCO.

Is accounting the new accounting?

The meaning, or rather, the raison d’être of accounting today is understood and experienced in different ways. Which sometimes undermines its importance.

Every major science or discipline has a solid foundation and often a rich history. Accounting too. It is not a modern invention, as many think, it probably originated more than 5000 years ago. This makes it one of the oldest human inventions.

However, it is generally believed that modern accounting was invented in Venice, a city port in the Mediterranean Sea. In 1494, it was an epicentre for growth in southern Europe. It was Luca Pacioli, an Italian entrepreneur, who felt that the time was ripe for him to be able to really assess the financial situation of  his company, to monitor it properly and to adjust if necessary. His method quickly became the basis for the decision-making of the many Venetian merchants. Pacioli’s method became their compass, on and off the water. Everywhere. Always.

What’s going on in the accounting world today?

Today, accounting is seldom fully up-to-date, and that’s not how it was meant to be. Well, I know, everything changes and that’s how it’s supposed to be. But nowadays, many companies, especially smaller ones, see their bookkeeping as a necessary evil that exists primarily for tax purposes. In addition, there is often a separate ‘internal accounting’ in addition to the official books. This will often be an Excel spreadsheet, allowing to follow up the company with figures. Simply because their bookkeeping is not good enough, or perhaps not user-friendly enough to use as a basis for decision-making.

With access to the last quarter’s figures, it is simply not easy to make the right decisions and make reliable forecasts.

Check it out for yourself – Do you have an immediate answer to the following questions?

  • The result: how’s your business doing at this exact moment?
  • Liquidity: is there enough money?
  • Key figures: are we on track?
  • Traceability: are you able to deduce all business facts and decisions taken? And do you see these effectively in your figures?

You may be able to find some useful figures, at first sight, from your annual accounts or other reports that have been drawn up afterwards – but I myself do not know of any platform that allows you to make strategic choices based on truly reliable figures. That is exactly why we will launch TOCO soon.

Decisions based on real-time data

You’d better be at the helm of your company with a reliable compass at hand. This is the only way to do business efficiently – with a long term view. By digitalizing and automating all your documents and streamlining your financial processes, turnaround times are greatly reduced and in many cases even eliminated. With TOCO you follow your company in real-time, with validated Silverfin figures,  replacing the separate, “internal accounting” Excel sheet, exactly as Pacioli envisioned it in 1494.

Press release: Xerius and TOCO join forces for a new role for accountants.

Antwerp and Ghent, 13 May 2019 – Xerius and TOCO will actively assist and inspire bookkeepers and accountants so they can better help their customers achieve their ambitions. The  current wave of digitalisation offers many new opportunities.

While new technologies, and even banks, are taking over repetitive tasks, the modern SME needs more personal advice and a clear insight into their business figures. As a result of the time freed up by automation, bookkeepers and accountants are able to communicate better with their customers and thus provide an appropriate service. Reinventing oneself is not a must, but rather a logical and natural evolution for the profession.

The market is also asking for an all-in-one solution: accounting package, communication module, easy connection with service providers, social secretariats, and integration with reporting tools, such as e.g. Silverfin. TOCO is such a collaborative instrument. It is an online platform that gives the company direction, while the bookkeeper remains in control and has more time to advise the entrepreneur.

Xerius is now joining this new portal and will become an integrated TOCO functionality. In the TOCO solution, Xerius now provides an up-to-date overview of the SME’s social contributions. The entrepreneur will also be informed when he has to pay these. Moreover, accountants can easily connect with their customers, right from the portal. In the long run, entrepreneurs will even be able to onboard to Xerius via TOCO.

Franky Haesevoets, Managing Director, Xerius: “Today’s customer is looking for an integrated solution that gives him a clear overview of how his company is performing at a glance. At Xerius, we strongly believe in platforms such as TOCO to connect with our customers. And very important, the bookkeeper or accountant always has an overview of the status of the customer. This will strengthen his advisory role.”

Philippe Kimpe, CEO, TOCO: “Our mission is to become the entrepreneur’s financial compass. The collaboration with Xerius is an enormous step forward on the road to a more efficient management of every SME”.

See TOCO in action at Silverfin’s Fast Forward 2019, May 14, Ghelamco Arena in Gent.
