Keep It Simple Super (KISS) will now use Simple Fund 360 and CAS 360 as its self-managed superannuation administration and corporate compliance software solutions.
Both products are owned by BGL Corporate Solutions, whose managing director Ron Lesh described KISS as a "long-term advocate." The company's Simple Fund software is used in administration of about 70% of Australia's 600,000 SMSFs.
The new CAS 360 software, which will release to market on February 22, is described as a cloud-based ASIC corporate compliance solution and has been available in beta to more than 180 BGL clients for six months. Lesh said the software's primary advantage was its automatic integration with the most popular accounting practice management systems. Integration with Xero, Sage Handisoft, CCH iFirm and MYOB will follow shortly.
KISS director Julie Taylor said: "Since I started the business nearly 10 years ago, we've utilised the benefits of BGL's Simple Fund Desktop software and Portal by BGL to be a 100% paperless and flexible workplace so we've never been cloud phobic, but like many accountants we didn't want to dive straight in when Simple Fund 360 was first released."
"Our business is all about being simple and hassle free and you get that by making careful decisions about the platforms, staff and clients you work with," she added.
"I've seen other SMSF administrators switching platforms only to switch back again. To me, that's tough, not only on your hip pocket but also on the morale of your staff and the confidence of your clients."
