message from the founder
Hello, I am the founder of SimpleInsight Ltd my name is Michael Stewart. I am a qualified CIMA accountant and a qualified Digital Business Transformation Professional. I have over 20 years’ experience in accounting within industries such as Biotechnology, IT, Facilities Management, Manufacturing, Law, Transport, Utilities, Housing, Public and Private Healthcare and Telecommunications. Over this time, I have gained transformation experience and I have been exposed to a wide number of ERP systems. As the founder, I’m here to put SimpleInsight in the position to help solve problems for clients, using cloud and digital technology.
What I find amazing is the level of technology that is available for any organisation regardless of size. My passion is to use as much technology and new ways of working, to help bring clients more enjoyment in their working environment. Everyone has a mobile device, but how many people use its complete capability? The same can be said for cloud applications and digital technology. The world has become a place where online platforms help to drive innovation. The value is in the platform and this would be unthought of over 20 years ago. At SimpleInsight, we are here to put entities in a position to capitalise in the digital age, as it is clear, that being in the cloud is the foundation for the future.
Who ARE WE?
We are accountants who love to use cloud and digital technology to enable the encouragement of changing mindsets, collaborative working and communication. It is our business to build sustainable organisations for the future, it is what the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) have done for 100 years.
present and future
If you layer digitisation on top of the emergence of more data and innovative technologies, there becomes a need to embrace finance and data to drive decision making, in the volatile complex and uncertain world today, to create the agile and sustainable tomorrow.
We have witnessed many different styles of organisation from startups to multinationals. The many roles finance professionals undertake in business are important. Looking forward, it is the ability to help the business join the dots as a strategic advisor, that will become very important in the future. The ability to do this effectively is dependent on the right leadership, culture, mindset and technology to enable true business partnering to occur. If any of these elements are missing, then it becomes difficult for the business partner to send the value-added messages required in a timely manner, to impact on the strategic direction of the business.
Here at SimpleInsight, it is more about experimenting and moving forward and not being afraid to fail, while searching for new ways of working, streamlining processes and promoting a more connected organisation. We are only limited by our own perception of what is possible. If we try, we may surprise ourselves in what can be achieved in short space of time.
Think of us as the finance innovators that you can call upon, to move things forward in your organisation, because you don’t have the time to, or you sense your job might be on the line if you mention finance transformation. If we think that we currently have a lot of data now, then think again, as it is going to explode with the event of Internet of Things (IoT). Sensors in everything that you can think of, that will bring data from the edge to the cloud, that is, if you are in the cloud. So, what are you waiting for, give us a call and start your cloud and digital journey today. It is better to innovate however small that may be, than to do nothing and lose competitive advantage, waiting for an unwelcome surprise that you knew would happen called digital disruption.
