    Business to Business
    Accounting Technology

    The UK is a B2B nation with nearly 40% of UK companies deriving all of their income from B2B activity, with a further 42% having a blended business mix with some of their income from B2B. B2B Accounting Technology plays a vital role in helping SME’s improve their productivity and efficiencies.

    The B2B world is one that is dealing with high ticket, specialist products, complicated buying units, multi-touch contacts and long sales cycles. Streamlining B2B processes should be high on the priory list for most businesses. Yet in many companies, some of the most time-consuming and important tasks, such as accounting and purchasing, still rely on traditional methods and hardware-based software.

    Direct Peak has identified this issue for many SMEs and implemented accounting technology stacks to improve cash flow and efficiency. Here is a common example of a technology stack we implement and support for our B2B accounting clients:

    Quotes and Invoicing

    By using a combination of Workflow Max and Xero, accepted quotations are turned into invoices pushed through to Xero along with new contacts and their details. This saves time in manually converting and collating quotes and invoices and there is no need for manual input of new client setups.

    Credit Control and Payments

    For overdue invoices, Chaser looks at the outstanding invoices in Xero and sends automated email chases that look like they are from an internal member of staff.

    To automate payments, GoCardless looks at the invoices in Xero and collects a direct debit based on the due date – Once collected GoCardless marks the invoice as paid in Xero.

    Incoming expenses
    and purchase Invoices

    For incoming expenses and purchase invoices, we advised the client to set up Dext. With pinpoint accuracy, Dext scans all the information on the go — from your mobile, laptop or email inbox — storing and organising the data using a mix of AI and human sorting. The extracted information is then posted into Xero, cutting down on manual data entry.

    To automate supplier payments and deal with issues of multi-currencies, we helped the client set up TransferWise which allows you to pay invoices, buy inventory, and handle payroll with the real exchange rate in over 50 currencies.

    Finally, Xero Payroll posted all payroll costs directly into the client’s Xero accounting package.

    The resulting automatic reconciliation of payments and spending across multiple channels saw a significant reduction in manual data input and reconciliation tasks. With human input error taken out of the equation, customer and supplier invoicing inquiries were reduced.

    Direct Peak are experts in accounting technology.

    Our accountancy service packages are fixed-fee and tailored to the requirements of your business. There are no extra charges for queries by phone or email, so if something is worrying you, please pick up the phone and call.

    If your current accounting solution isn’t keeping up with your fast-moving business, talk to us now on 01778 481044 or book an appointment.

    B2B Accounting Technology Developments

    B2B (business-to-business) accounting technology has been rapidly evolving to streamline processes, increase efficiency, and provide more accurate financial information. Some key areas of advancement:

    1. Cloud-Based Accounting Systems: Cloud computing has revolutionized B2B accounting by enabling businesses to access their accounting software and data from anywhere with an internet connection. Cloud-based accounting systems offer real-time collaboration, data security, automatic updates, and integration with other software applications.
    2. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML): AI and ML technologies have been integrated into accounting software to automate repetitive tasks, such as data entry and bank reconciliation. These technologies can analyse large datasets, identify patterns, and make accurate predictions, improving the accuracy and efficiency of financial reporting.
    3. Automation of Routine Tasks: B2B accounting technology has focused on automating routine tasks like invoice processing, expense management, and payroll calculations. This automation reduces manual errors, speeds up processes, and allows accountants to focus on more strategic financial analysis and decision-making.
    4. Integration with Business Systems: B2B accounting technology has become more integrated with other business systems such as customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and supply chain management (SCM) software. This integration allows for seamless data flow between different departments, reducing data entry duplication and improving overall efficiency.
    5. Data Analytics and Reporting: Advanced reporting and data analytics capabilities have been incorporated into accounting software. These features provide businesses with detailed insights into financial performance, trends, and forecasts. Data visualisation tools enable users to create interactive reports and dashboards for better decision-making.
    6. Blockchain Technology: Blockchain has the potential to transform B2B accounting by providing a secure and transparent platform for recording financial transactions. It can enhance trust, reduce fraud, and streamline processes like auditing and supply chain management.
    7. Mobile Accounting: B2B accounting technology has also embraced mobile platforms, allowing users to access accounting systems and perform tasks on smartphones and tablets. Mobile accounting apps enable on-the-go management of finances, invoicing, and expense tracking.

    It’s important to note that the accounting technology landscape is dynamic, with new developments and innovations occurring regularly. To stay up to date with the latest advancements, it is recommended to consult industry-specific resources, attend conferences, and engage with accounting software providers.

    I recently changed my Accounting to Direct Peak, mainly due to Karls brilliant support with advice regarding making Tax Digital and around my business growth intentions. Having run my own small business and being with my previous accountant for 13 years, I have been SUPER impressed with every aspect of the move - the advice, the support, and mostly the friendliness of the team and their willingness to want to help. Eve has been so amazing at supporting me to make the transition to Digital VAT returns - I cannot recommend Karl and his team at Direct Peak highly enough - Thanks Guys!
