Phlexable today announces the launch of its new platform that connects small business owners with experienced financial analysts and accounting professionals.
Phlexable’s mission is to democratize tax and accounting by giving small business owners and startups access to top-tier CPAs, bookkeepers, financial analysts, and tax advisors. Phlexable streamlines the engagement process between clients and these financial professionals by providing a seamless platform for communication, file sharing, and final payment.
Now, with Phlexable’s simplified workflow, small businesses and startups can enjoy cost effective accounting services from credentialed, top-shelf talent.
The process is straight-forward. A new client simply creates a Phlexable account to post a job with a specified budget. Phlexable’s talented network of verified professionals receive instant notifications via SMS and email to submit competitive proposals that align with the client’s terms and budget. Once a proposal has been accepted, Phlexable will hold funds in escrow until the client and professional are satisfied with the finished deliverable. When work is submitted, a client will then either release funds or request revisions. Thanks to a user-friendly dashboard, all messages, files and conversations are kept in one place.
Despite the fact that there are 27.9 small businesses in the US, few affordable and credentialed online professional accounting services are within their reach. Accounting firms have peak season and low seasons, leaving many CPAs looking for ways to leverage their free time or find flexible working solutions. Phlexable empowers this group of professionals to apply their skills to serve their community’s small businesses. Just as other industries have been transformed by the gig economy (Uber in transportation, Airbnb in travel, etc.), Phlexable is broadening the accounting and tax industries which have been traditionally slow to embrace change.
“Phlexable brings talented CPA, bookkeepers, and financial analysts to the doorstep of small business owners who would otherwise miss out on the unmatched top-tier knowledge and experience offered by our professionals,” says Chad D. Cummings, Founder of Phlexable. Chad, 25, continues on: “It also allows credentialed professionals to apply their aptitude and industry experience in a new market, creating a mutually beneficial opportunity.”
