“Adding this has been a lifesaver!”
Matthews Steer is a large accounting and business advising practice based in Essendon Fields in Victoria. With 5 Partners and 55 staff, the
team at Matthews Steer were weighed down by their annual report collation processes, with technology continually crashing and creating
When Matthews Steer decided to move from a windows file directory to a Virtual Cabinet filing system, implementing FuseDocs to automate
their collation process at the same time helped them to completely streamline their processes, shaving up to 45 minutes off every single
annual report collation.
Prior to implementing FuseDocs, the administration team would prepare all annual collations in paper, based off a “tick and flick” collation
checklist provided by the accountant. Each document would be located and printed, the documents physically placed into the correct order,
and a letter manually prepared and printed to accompany the report package collation. It was a cumbersome process, with their existing PDF
collation solution continuously crashing and causing delays in finalising the collations.

of automating their annual collations with FuseDocs to help them up skill during their transition from using a Windows file directory to
Their dedicated FuseDocs implementation consultant helped them to implement strong naming conventions and create a new collation checklist,
as well as automating the preparation of a client personalised covering letter.
While Matthews Steer still provide many clients with paper copies of their collations, preparing these has never been easier. Thanks

automate their FBT and SMSF collations too!
“We’re loving all the work Matthews Steer and FuseWorks have been doing together (with FuseDocs) – it’s changing our world for the
better every day!”
