David Hartley SAIPA member Articles at BDO Spencer Stewart Work as Financial Manager in a few companies Started Pastel in Cape Town in 1990 Designed: All charts of accounts in Pastel Pastel Auditor Worked with a few accounting firms... Became the Creative Accountant!!
From years ago we wrote up cash books manually... from 1990s. PCs took over Pastel and similar packages Punching into Accounting packages from bank statements was great! And now 22 years later, most people are STILL punching in Accounting packages from bank statement line by line...which are: Open to human processing error... Very costly in time and money... Very tedious and boring...
I then did some homework and realised that: only a few clients were even attempting to finding a Smarter way of processing their cashbooks!! With this in my mind...I then teamed up with Sylvain Ntumba and... Spent the last 1 ½ years producing...
The Bookkeepers Solution....using modern technology....
Multi accounting package Bank statement software Import management tool Imports 1000s of transactions straight from bank statements into your cashbook....at the push of a button...and is so easy.... Saves up to 80% to 90% in TIME and COSTS... Finish work in less than 1 day what normally takes 4 to 5 days to do....the SMART WAY!!

Nedbank is the only bank that can go back 30 months or more Other Banks can only 3 to 6 months Solution Teach / Educate clients into this new way of thinking!
