It Takes A Village To Transform A Profession - PLUS FreeAgent's Secret Admirer & The Latest App News

Welcome back to the Digi-Tools in Accrual World podcast!


Join us as we throwback to Accountex, where Ryan decided to desert us for the peaceful woods. 

Indy lost her voice, John was knackered - but thankfully we had some stellar help from the Systems Advisory Network. 

As always, this episode covers the latest in app releases, raises and acquisitions

Plus, we see which of us can delay mastication the longest.

Special shoutouts to our Accountex saviours: Dayle, Julie, and Keaton.
