How to blow your clients’ minds with Fathom presentation software


How many clients are accountants losing because of poor presentation?

You present them with a wad of paper showing rows of figures and straight away you see the eyes roll into the back of their heads.

You realise you’ve lost them already. No-one is going to make sense of a bunch of figures.

Now show them something like this, using Fathom’s unbelievably versatile software to turn dry figures into the story of the company along with visual representation of break-even under any scenario, and how many key performance indicators (KPIs) are on target (or not) and any number of “what if” scenarios:

Suddenly, you’re talking an entirely different language. You’re sitting with a client and you’re able to show how the company is doing in terms of its key performance indicators, and how many of these indicators have been missed.

Then you’re able to show the client a number of different “what if” scenarios: what if you hire an extra employee this month, or delay it by three months, and what impact this will have on cash flow; what if you lease a new truck now or wait two months; what if you scale down the size of the head office and allow some staff to start working from home.

All of this can be visually represented, showing the impact on expenses, cash flow and profitability.

Saiba has recently formed a partnership with Fathom, offering members big discounts on the usual price. Fathom also integrates smoothly with QuickBooks Online and other accounting packages.

Fathom’s pricing is scaled depending on the number of clients, starting at R600 for a single client.

There is no question that a presentation on Fathom will blow you customers’ minds far more than having them wade through a pages and pages of figures. You can take a look at Fathom’s website here.

Says Matthew Lowry, Fathom’s head of operations for Africa and the Middle East: “We encourage accountants to sign up for a free trial. We think once you’ve used it, you’ll never look back.”
