It’s Official: Introducing FloQast’s Microsoft Teams Integration
Nov 16, 2021 | By John Siegel
2021 has featured a bevy of product news here at FloQast, and with /checks date/ a couple of weeks left on the calendar, we’ve got more to share.
Since the beginning, FloQast’s product team has worked closely with users to deliver solutions for challenges facing accounting teams, and over the last several months, our Product has been hard at work on an integration many FloQast users have been clambering for.
That’s right, FloQast’s long-awaited integration with Microsoft Teams is finally here and available for teams (pun intended!) everywhere!
Designed with remote and hybrid accounting teams in mind, FloQast’s two-way integration with Microsoft Teams enables faster decision-making while improving transparency and collaboration. Now, with added visibility into outstanding tasks, timelines associated with the month-end close can be accelerated to allow accountants to focus on more strategic goals.
According to Michelle Wright, corporate controller at Workforce Software, the ability to update FloQast directly from Microsoft Teams has been of tremendous value to her team so far.
“We use Microsoft Teams to drive collaboration and communication across both internal and external teams, creating a better experience for our employees,” said Wright. “With the FloQast application for Teams, we have an integrated, real-time view of all of the tasks, review status, and notes in Teams. And with the ability to update FloQast information directly from Teams, people don’t need to log on to FloQast as frequently, making their work easier and more efficient.”
Together, this two-way integration allows accountants to coordinate tasks across operations, including the month-end close, accounts payable/receivable, compliance, financial planning and analysis, and reporting.
"Helping accountants achieve accounting operational excellence means meeting them where they work, and combining FloQast’s capabilities with Microsoft Teams – in addition to previous initiatives with email and Slack – is another huge step in that direction," said Mike Whitmire, CPA*, CEO and co-founder of FloQast. “Our platform is the first and only accounting workflow solution that allows two-way communication with Microsoft Teams, giving accounting organizations the power to turn notifications into action and manage their operations at any time or place."
