Jazoodle’s September 2018 News
Jazoodle News September 2018
The past few months have been particularly exciting for us, and in turn should be really good for our clients and partners.
Amazon Web Services Migration
First up, we have migrated our application to the Amazon Web Services Infrastructure. The move means that we are now able to scale better, plus offer even greater redundancy as we grow as a company. Security wise, this was never in any doubt, but now offers us even more in that area.
So, enough of that, the migration went great, and we are now 100% AWS.
Enhancement Releases and Roadmap
We have also just released some minor additional functionality which makes the “model It” screen very, very simple to understand and easy to use. We have split the charts, reports, and indicators into separate areas, so as not to appear cluttered. In the coming weeks, we will be releasing some major enhancements, including the integration with MYOB (Australia and New Zealand) plus Quickbooks (Global). We are also investigating the inclusion of better data import error handling – and hope to add a data template should the auto import functionality throw up an error. We hope to have these In place by the end of October. Create your free Jazoodle account today

The Dynamic Jazoodle Health Score
Do you know what the Health Score means in Jazoodle..? We built the health metric into Jazoodle in order to give our business owners and their advisors an instant and simple view as to how healthy their business is at any given time.
The measure is based upon a metric devised many years ago, and one which has stood the test of time. The Altman Z Score, was empirically tested many times since. Company data collected over multiple years, established that it was approximately 70-85% accurate in forecasting company financial distress. This brought companies early warning, up to 2 years ahead of time. We believe that all businesses should be aware of their business health score and it is recalculated every time you log on to Jazoodle and update your accounts data. It is therefore, one of the cleverest early indicators of business success, or otherwise.
Pricing Changes – Good news For All!
We have recently changed our pricing model and made a number of significant positive changes. This is great news for all of our clients and partners.
Jazoodle Biz Family
The Jazoodle Biz Family previously had 3 versions, depending upon functionality. We have merged all three versions into a simple, single version; Jazoodle Biz professional. We have also simplified our pricing and now offer just a single price for all SMEs, NFPs and business owners:
Jazoodle Business Professional
For our accountant and professional advisor partners, we’ve simplified our tiers. We now offer just four simple tiers. You only pay for what you use, and the more connections, the more cost effective it becomes!
