Having access to financial data is one thing, but having the understanding to make it meaningful to a farm’s performance is another.
Which is why we’ve created the Figured Partner Program. It’s designed to ensure that farmers are getting support from experienced advisers who have the accounting acumen and agri insight to help them make financial decisions that drive the success of their farming business.
The Partner Program means that farmers can trust that they’re working with an accountant who is not just great at crunching numbers, but who understands farming, and the benefits of using cloud technology to manage operations. At the same time, experienced rural accounting practices can gain recognition for their expertise in the farming sector, and receive support, resources and referrals from qualified leads. And for us, it means that we’re working with advisers who are just as passionate about growing and supporting profitable agriculture businesses as we are.
With our partner base steadily growing in both New Zealand and Australia, we felt that we needed to suitably acknowledge those partners who have demonstrated a commitment to working with Figured in their practice, and to ensure that they also continue to get value through referrals and promotion on the Figured website.
With this in mind, we’ve introduced a three-tier qualification system based on points - similar to the Partner Program offered by companies like Xero - where you’ll earn points for certification, license adoptions, and marketing efforts. For a practice to be eligible for the Partner Program, they must have staff who have completed the Figured Adviser certification.
We’re pleased to have already welcomed awesome Gold, Silver and Bronze Partners to the program. We’re excited to be working alongside them in helping their clients grow profitable farming operations, as well as helping them boost their own rural customer base.
