Matt from DebtorDaddy FPC#06 come up from the South Island to give us a candid update. After Xero expanded into his space he had to adjust the business model. He has raised service and price levels and now offers a special product for accountants. This has consolidated his revenue and he focused to reach break even over the remaining runway, to about the middle of next year.
Salesman extraordinaire and FKAngel Tim Gelston reckons he has some tricks up his sleeve and is following up with Matt. Also, Matt Gin from KPMG is following up with their Xero team to see how they could leverage DebtorDaddy for added value for SME customers.
Please ping Matt@DebtorDaddy.com directly if you know any companies or accountants that are contending with outstanding debtors in excess of benchmark levels.

No punters came to Takapuna this week, but we had 4 sessions in Auckland. One of them a driven woman founder cum husband how have from own funds build a property auction platform, another with a vision impaired visual artist who has developed leading edge tech to convert photographs into high definition 3D assets.
