With AI encroaching on traditional accountancy businesses, Brightline Strategies updates its professional consultancy services designed to help CPAs improve their service offering and their bottom line.

The accounting business consultancy now offers a four-step system known as the Accountant Revenue Accelerator, which is designed to help CPA and accountancy businesses expand their capabilities. The solution focuses on leveraging existing knowledge to create value-added service offerings, thereby avoiding the potential impact of new technologies.

Brightline Strategies’ enhanced consultancy services are designed to help practice owners restructure their business models and develop new, more lucrative revenue streams. The firm highlights the steady decline of traditional travel agencies and states that AI poses a similar threat to accountancy firms.

A recent report from Towards Data Science explains that AI is disrupting the accounting industry. It states that AI chatbots are already being used to perform a variety of bookkeeping tasks, and machine learning algorithms will soon be capable of performing the majority of auditing roles.

Brightline Strategies points out that this is beginning to undermine accountants’ value, which ultimately impacts their business. The firm’s latest coaching services focus on the wealth of knowledge that professional accountants possess about their clients’ finances and aim to help them become more proactive in the role of business advisors.

“One of the biggest challenges accounting firms face is being open to rethinking how they do business,” a company representative explained. “Our goal is to change and enhance the relationship accountants have with their business owner clients, so they can reap the rewards of what they have spent many years building.”
