Jody Padar is known as the Radical CPA for a reason, and she immediately began making waves by pushing the firm to become a leader in the cloud-based accounting industry. Her goal was to address a number of issues the firm was experiencing, including cutting back on costs, creating a path for growth, and finding the best talent. She turned to Botkeeper to help create efficient, low-cost solutions.
Jody says the firm was able to decrease human error and save 30 to 50% on bookkeeping. Suddenly, Jody had time to turn her focus to growth strategies, including how to manage new accounts when the bookkeeper talent pool was virtually nonexistent for small firms.
“It was visceral, the reaction that I had,” Jody said of seeing Botkeeper in action. “The bots were actually doing the work of what I’d gone to school for, what I focused my life on.”
Reduction in labor
Times the number of new clients each month
Overall cost reduction
Since partnering with Botkeeper, Jody and her team have been able to grow the firm, going from onboarding around five new clients each month to between 40 and 60. On top of that, Jody says labor costs have been cut by almost 40% since Botkeeper came aboard “Saving money is one thing, but we can’t even find talented bookkeepers,” Jody said. “All the cream of the crop goes to the big firms. By the time you get to a small firm, a lot of the talent is already picked over. That’s the biggest pain point that Botkeeper solves—the talent problem.”

Jody says she also gained tremendous peace of mind knowing that Botkeeper was making sure the day-to-day bookkeeping tasks were being completed accurately and on time. “I walk in in the morning, and it’s done,” she said. “Now all our files are in here real-time, and we couldn’t be happier. We’re thrilled!”
