From achieving Platinum Status to winning Xero’s Emerging Partner of the Year, what a year it has been for Sleek!
Since we started in May 2017, our team has been working hard to deliver a different type of company secretary and accounting service for entrepreneurs and investors – one that focuses on a more transparent, efficient, and innovative approach to managing ACRA and IRAS compliance.
Choosing to partner with Xero, another cloud-based solution, allowed us to deliver results to our customers quickly and efficiently – the same brand promise that we deliver with our company secretary platform. Our deep understanding of their business from both a corporate and accounting perspective means we can help them make smart accounting decisions to make their business more successful.
“It is amazing how in just 18 months, we have gone from onboarding our first client on Xero to Platinum – their top 5 partners among all service providers, and then now in November, winning the Emerging Partner of the Year award,” says Sleek’s CEO, Julien Labruyere. “Big credit goes to the incredible dedication of the accounting team for continuously hustling through daily to achieve this goal.”
Kevin Fitzgerald, Managing Director – Asia, Xero said: “Technology has propelled the transformation of the accounting and bookkeeping industry. Today, cloud-enabled accountants such as Sleek are able to leverage cloud accounting to better serve as business advisors to their clients and stay ahead of the competition. Their rapid rise to Xero Platinum status in under two years and now winning the Emerging Partner of the Year in Singapore, further reinforces the importance of embracing technology to be an industry pacesetter. By jumping on the cloud bandwagon, they have established a stronger value proposition and competitive edge, and effectively built a foundation to support long-term growth and success.”
With a real-time view of cash flow, managing inventory, processing invoices, and payroll, Xero’s platform is like a dream come true for our accounting team. Clients are satisfied with the user-friendly platform as well as the additional services that it offers.
Julien adds, “Accounting can be a hassle but with a software like Xero, this whole process has revolutionised. From small business to big, anyone and everyone has access to the cloud platform where business owners can see both the gaps and opportunities along the way. We are proud to be in a position where we can help customers get visibility over the finances and steer them into more opportunities for growth.”
