BGL worked on the application of AI for its market-leading, cloud-based platform, Simple Fund 360, for two years. The goal for BGL was to integrate an AI personal assistant with Simple Fund 360 to support the labor-intensive pre-audit process. This, in turn, would help accountants improve productivity—reducing costs further—and lower transaction categorization errors.
The new integration allows firms using AccountKit to see CAS 360 company Annual Review status, document deadlines, ASIC company debt list and documents awaiting lodgement in ASIC in CAS 360 from inside AccountKit. Additionally, users will now be able to bring up clients records showing data across XPM, AccountKit, CAS 360 and Simple Fund 360.
