How has Liscio made your day-to-day easier?

I can communicate easier. I have an accountant and bookkeeper at two separate companies — with Liscio, I can communicate with each of them and I know it’s secure. I don’t feel like I have to be tied to a computer or a phone call. When things pop up, I can shoot a text over in Liscio and attach any documents I need, knowing it’s a safe environment. I don’t have to be in my business to make that happen, I can do it anywhere in the world. That’s what I appreciate most about Liscio: no matter where I am, I can talk to my accountant and submit things to them in a much easier way.

What was it like working with your accountant or bookkeeper before and after they adopted Liscio?

It was pretty cumbersome. I would have to be at my desktop to be able to communicate with my bookkeeper or accountant. When transmitting sensitive or financial information, you never know where it’s going or who has access to it. Especially with email.

Liscio made this process a lot more secure and a lot less cumbersome. With email, it takes a lot longer to get a response back, while with Liscio, I know my accountant or bookkeeper will get the information immediately versus backed up in email. Liscio makes it easy to get the pertinent information we need faster.

Why would you recommend Liscio?

I recommended Liscio to my accountant as a layer of protection for myself and her clients. I’ve recommended friends to find accountants who use Liscio because of how much easier it is to communicate through Liscio than traditional means.

With Liscio, you’re able to keep track of all your conversations in one area. You don’t have to go searching through your email to find something; everything is archived and labeled out where you need it to be. It keeps all of your information stored in one space versus spread across multiple places like your email or hard drive.

With Liscio, everything is contained down to one app. It makes our lives so much easier.
