May 7, 2020The Right Networks team is always seeking ways to improve our offerings and our methods of helping accounting firms excel in this fast-changing industry. This desire to ever improve has led to a pivotal announcement that dramatically expands our support of firm evolution and success going forward: Right Networks has acquired Rootworks, the profession’s premier firm-improvement organization.
Led by Darren Root, Rootworks provides accounting firms with the tools, resources and guidance they need to create a high-performing Modern Firm™.
We’ve long been the leading technology supplier to the accounting profession, which has served our firm customers well as they navigate the industry’s digital transformation. However, the new reality is that firms need more than technology to succeed. Firms need the business context, the ‘why and how,’ so they can quickly adapt and move forward. We chose to bring Rootworks into the fold because they have pioneered and perfected a repeatable business model for The Modern Firm. They support this model with education and dedicated coaching through a technology platform and peer community that fosters real success. We know that firm owners need help. With our combined resources, Right Networks and Rootworks can deliver that help to a degree that no other organization can match.
Our customers will now have the option of subscribing to Rootworks’ powerful Modern Firm Performance Platform™—a unique solution composed of front-office tools and resources, supported by ongoing guidance and an established peer community, to manage, organize and execute on all aspects of a Modern Firm. The platform supports all firms, irrespective of their size or the technologies they use.
When looking to improve how we operate and what we offer, there’s nothing more important than really understanding our customers. Rootworks has fostered a community of 700+ members and brings a wealth of insider knowledge that helps us better understand the broader needs of our firm customers and enhances our ability to create high-impact solutions. And that’s the most gratifying part of this new era of Right Networks: becoming a more complete partner as we help firms achieve success.
