We’re thrilled to announce our newest platinum partner to be added to our Partner Program: RSM Australia.
Earlier this year, we announced the signing of a partnership agreement which saw Figured form the basis of the tech stack that RSM is taking to its agricultural clients across their 26 offices nationwide. This partnership is a huge milestone for both Figured and RSM, who aim to deliver the best financial management technology, and the best, most relevant advisory services for Australian farmers.
Being a nationwide firm, and part of the global network, RSM Australia is one of the progressive financial advisory firms in Australia. The team at RSM are leaders in the agri sector, having established an advisory service which is at the heart of how they serve the farming community.
RSM’s commitment to delivering value and constantly seeking to improve their clients' businesses, has led them to embrace best in class technology, and we’re excited to share that commitment to delivering value to Australian farmers.
We are delighted to welcome RSM Australia to the Figured Platinum Partner status, and we couldn’t have done it without the support and hard work of the RSM Australia team — we extend a huge thank you to the RSM Agri team in particular Joanne Gilbert, Cameron Taylor and Ross Paterson. A massive thank you also to the RSM Digital team lead by Kaisa Heikkila, Laurel Grey and Matt Bugden.
What is the Figured Partner Program?
The Figured Partner Program is designed to ensure that farmers are getting support from experienced advisers who have the accounting acumen and agri insight to help them make financial decisions that drive the success of their farming business.
The Partner Program means that farmers can trust that they’re working with an accountant who is not just great at crunching numbers, but who understands farming, and the benefits of using cloud technology to manage operations. At the same time, experienced rural accounting practices can gain recognition for their expertise in the farming sector, and receive support, resources and referrals from qualified leads. And for us, it means that we’re working with advisers who are just as passionate about growing and supporting profitable agriculture businesses as we are.
This program acknowledges those partners who have demonstrated a commitment to working with Figured in their practice, and to ensure that they also continue to get value through referrals and promotion on the Figured website.The three-tier qualification system is based on points - similar to the Partner Program offered by companies like Xero - where you’ll earn points for certification, license adoptions, and marketing efforts. For a practice to be eligible for the Partner Program, they must have staff who have completed the Figured Adviser certification.
We’re excited to welcome RSM Australia to the Partner Program, and to be working alongside RSM Australia in helping their clients grow profitable farming operations, as well as helping them boost their own rural customer base.
