Bstar provides a defined framework that we can scale
"We were offering Business Advisory services to our clients, but we didn’t have a structured and repeatable way to deliver on a consistent basis. Bstar provides a defined framework that we can scale, ensuring we deliver what we say will to our clients each and every time. Without Bstar, we wouldn’t be able to offer the suite of Business Advisory Services we do today, meaning we’d miss out on a huge opportunity to grow both our business, and our client’s businesses."
Drue Schofield, 4Front Accountants
The Bstar process and tools align perfectly with our delivery model
"We appreciate the value in systemising an offering and Bstar was fundamental in allowing our practice to do that. The Bstar process and tools align perfectly with our delivery model and provide structure to what has always been an adhoc and somewhat intuitive process."
Jared Favero, Godbee Favero
"We see the value in partnering with industry experts and access to data that assists our clients (and ourselves) identify KPIs appropriate to their situation."
