Small business advisors from around the country were honoured for their service to New Zealand’s SME sector at the annual MYOB Partner Connect conference in Auckland last weekend.
The top awards ‘Partner of the Year’ and ‘Best Online Presence’ were presented to Auckland-based business advisor, Debbie Vihi.
Vihi, owner of Mobile Bookkeeping & Training, has over 25 years’ experience in the finance community and has been part of MYOB’s Partner network since 2013.
MYOB National Sales Manager SME Solutions Scott Gardiner announced the award, noting that MYOB is impressed with Vihi’s commitment to making business life easy for SME owners.
“You only have to speak with some of her clients to truly understand Debbie’s level of commitment to helping business owners with the day-to-day running of their business,” Gardiner says.
“Her knowledge of MYOB’s extensive product suite and professionalism is to be admired. As an operator of a mobile company, Debbie understands the huge benefits working online offers businesses and is able to advise her clients accordingly."
“Her online presence is clear through her up-to-date and user-friendly website.” Vihi says she is honoured to have received the top awards. “I have been using MYOB products for over 10 years, it is the only product that I now use and I know it inside and out,” she adds.
“Over the last two years as an MYOB partner I have really enjoyed being a part of the MYOB community. It is through these strong relationships that I am able to provide a high level of service to my clients.”
According to Vihi, the success of Mobile Bookkeeping & Training is due the flexibility that she is able to offer her clients. “By utilising the benefits of the cloud I am able to bring my services clients’ businesses as often as they need,” Vihi adds.
