Chioma Ifeanyi-Eze: The Accountant Using Technology To Power SMEs

I saw a vacuum in the industry; there are over 9,000 accounting firms in the country and each of these firms, especially the small ones, works for one to 10 businesses in Nigeria where we have over 40 million small and medium enterprises (SMEs). You can see that there is a huge gap between the number of SMEs and the number of accounting firms that are servicing them. Unless you use technology you cannot work for many SMEs; the old accounting practice was done in a way that they would come to your office and spend days and days looking through your books. But using technology I do not need to come to your every day to do accounting for you and I can work for up 100 SMEs and more businesses can have credible numbers to make their decisions.
