We’ve been working on some big things here at SuiteFiles over the past couple of months, and while our major releases are still a few months away, we’ve got several updates that have just launched or are launching in the next couple of weeks. The full list of changes is available in our Help Centre. But we wanted to take the time to talk through our 3 favourite features from the updates in a little more detail.
Christmas is now less than a month away! Which means offices all over the globe are currently in the final push towards the end of the year. The closure over Christmas can be daunting, especially in Australia and NZ where businesses often operate on absolute minimum staff for up to 2 weeks, so we’ve put together 5 often overlooked tips to ensure you’re well organised this festive season!
It’s time to start planning your Christmas break. We’re doing that here at SuiteFiles. Over the upcoming Christmas period we’ll be providing essential support services only - this means support for “severity one” issues such as the service being down. While all support questions are important other issues will be addressed when we return to the office in 2019.
We’re looking to grow
For the past 6.5 years the team has worked really hard to build a sustainable business. We think we’ve done that and now want to take the next step and grow quicker. You may have seen a recent article in the NBR (paywall here) that we’re looking to raise capital. The article details our plans to grow SuiteFiles. We’re doing this through the Snowball platform. Over the past couple of years we’ve put a lot of energy into refining and better understanding our metrics so we have a great platform for growth.
Bad filing habits are like mischievous creatures that wreak havoc on your file system. Leaving headaches and poor folder structures in their wake, they can prevent your business from having the beautifully organised, easy to search through file system you deserve (and need)!
Businesses are increasingly putting focus on creating ‘greener’ office environments. These are offices that produce less waste and employ more eco-friendly practices and products in an attempt to not only contribute to a more sustainable world, but also to save money (and space).
It’s the time of year that accountants and bookkeepers live for. It may have facetiously been dubbed ‘Coachella for Accountants’ but that’s not too far from the truth. The annual Xerocon event has become one of the most popular and highly anticipated accounting conferences in the world, and the largest one is taking place in Brisbane this September.

A slick filing system sits at the heart of any successful project or organisation. But it doesn’t happen without some careful consideration around file naming conventions.
In March this year, New Zealand trustee company, Perpetual Guardian, announced their intentions to embark on an unprecedented productivity trial. Their approach: a 4-day work week for over 200 of their staff. While the 4-day work week isn’t a new concept, employees who are offered this benefit elsewhere generally earn 75% of their salary. What made Perpetual Guardian’s trial different, is that there would be no change in remuneration or any other employment conditions.
