A ‘WIISE’ PARTNERSHIP SIMPLIFIES SME BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

An integrated cloud-based business platform will revolutionise and simplify accounting, payroll, banking and daily operations for Australian small and medium businesses from July 2018. 

Combining the business expertise and software development teams of KPMG Australia (business advisory), CBA (banking) and Microsoft (technology platforms), Wiise is targeting SMEs that see themselves as having more complex needs due to issues around compliance, tax and employee payments.

Wiise Executive Board member, John Munnelly said: “The ability for Wiise to partner with three leading providers with complimentary areas of expertise, deep resources, capabilities and strong brands allows us to genuinely look at a unique opportunity to rapidly scale Wiise in the Australian market.”

KPMG Australia National Managing Partner, Markets & Growth, James Hunter said: “The idea for Wiise was sparked by our acquisition of Microsoft systems implementer, Hands-On Systems.

“It opened our eyes to a gap in the market between existing cloud accounting software providers to SMEs and enterprise-scale ERP solutions. By collaborating with market leaders, CBA and Microsoft, we have been able to develop a single platform at an affordable price to unite SMEs’ accounting, financial and business needs.” Read more
