We spent some time with David and Darrin recently to hear more about their working relationship with Arabon and the importance of trust and shared values.
What was it like before you were working with Arabon?
Our accountants were more than adequate from an administrative point of view, however they were more reactive than proactive in their approach to our needs and weren’t a “one place” to go to for help in all things business.
Why were you looking for a new accountant?
At Business 360 we were looking for a trusted partner who could add value to our business growth with insights into best business practices and strategy. As workplace consultants we understand the need to continually look at strategies to help clients be prepared and proactive in due diligence and governance. Arabon provide this proactive approach to our business needs.
Where did you start your search?
We didn’t have to search too far; Michelle and Robert were known to us through business colleagues and their reputation was excellent. These personal recommendations made the switch a simple decision.
What made Arabon stand out from other options?
At Business 360, we are committed to helping businesses create great workplaces. Workplaces that are safe and fair, where the ground rules are known and practised, and where the company culture represents your values and beliefs in action. In Arabon we have a trusted partner with aligned values.
It was through Robert’s recommendations around governance, systems and the monthly packaging of their services that proved a real winner when it comes to covering all the bases.
What convinced you to move your accounting to Arabon?
At Business 360, we believe that your people are the cornerstone of business success. Robert & Michelle look after their people, and their people look after their customers, who in turn, will look after your bottom line. It is truly a co-dependant relationship.
What has made you happiest when working with Arabon?
The professional, timely and friendly service we have received from all staff especially Zahid who looks after our requirements has pleased us greatly.
What is the main reason you would recommend their services?
Operating as compliance partners to our own clients, we understand the need for trust, especially when advising on government regulations and business strategies. Arabon accounting not only inspires this trust they demonstrate it in their day to day dealings and it’s clear they stay up to date with relevant regulatory requirements on our behalf. We would not hesitate to recommend Arabon to our clients and the business owners we meet.
