Sleek wins tech giant's Xero's award for Emerging Partner of 2019 in Singapore
From achieving Platinum Status to winning Xero's Emerging Partner of the Year, what a year it has been for Sleek.
SINGAPORE, Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Launched in May 2017, Sleek enables entrepreneurs and investors to incorporate their company and manage their compliance online in both Singapore and Hong Kong. Users can incorporate a company completely remotely without leaving their desks, file requests to their company secretary 24/7 and get hassle-free accounting, payroll and tax services.
Sleek was originally founded by two entrepreneurs, Julien Labruyere and Adrien Barthel, who were frustrated at how traditional the incorporation and compliance management of companies were done. In response, they built Sleek, a cloud-based platform that removes the hassle of paperwork, and increases efficiency through the use of technology.
In less than two years, Sleek has assisted thousands of companies to start up in Singapore and Hong Kong, thanks to a transparent pricing, a platform built around efficiency and with a great user experience online and also offline, when interacting with its team. Sleek takes great pride in allowing entrepreneurs to focus on growing their business while they take care of all the admin.
Choosing to partner with Xro, another cloud-based solution, was of great benefit to Sleek as this allowed them to stick to their vision of being paperless and providing efficient and speedy accounting services to their customers. By having both corporate and accounting services, the team at Sleek has a better understanding of respective companies and can then help them make smart accounting decisions, which will make their business more successful.
"It is amazing how in just 18 months, we have gone from onboarding our first client on Xero to Platinum - their top 5 partners among all service providers, and then now in November, winning the Emerging Partner of the Year award," says Sleek's CEO, Julien Labruyere. "Big credit goes to the incredible dedication of the accounting team for continuously hustling through daily to achieve this goal."
Kevin Fitzgerald, Managing Director - Asia, Xero said: "Technology has propelled the transformation of the accounting and bookkeeping industry. Today, cloud-enabled accountants such as Sleek are able to leverage cloud accounting to better serve as business advisors to their clients and stay ahead of the competition. Their rapid rise to Xero Platinum status in under two years and now winning the Emerging Partner of the Year in Singapore, further reinforces the importance of embracing technology to be an industry pacesetter. By jumping on the cloud bandwagon, they have established a stronger value proposition and competitive edge, and effectively built a foundation to support long-term growth and success."
With a real-time view of cash flow, managing inventory, processing invoices, and payroll, Xero's platform is like a dream come true for Sleek's accounting team. Clients are satisfied with the user-friendly platform as well as the additional services that it offers.
Julien adds, "Accounting can be a hassle but with a software like Xero, this whole process has revolutionised. From small business to big, anyone and everyone has access to the cloud platform where business owners can see both the gaps and opportunities along the way. We are proud to be in a position where we can help customers get visibility over the finances and steer them into more opportunities for growth."
