The production chain of the sector accelerates the injection of resources in order to adapt itself to the demands required by the Public System of Digital Bookkeeping (SPED)

The implementation of subprojects of the Public System of Digital Bookkeeping (SPED) and the adoption of the International Accounting Standards have driven the sector to promote investments in information technology tools and staff training. According to the estimates, the sector has recorded an annual turnover of approximately R$ 7 billion.

Both the International Accounting Standards and the Sped have generated a lot of business, but with a basic difference. While the first ones, since 2010, only suffer the inclusion of new pronouncements or pass through updates and revisions, the second will reach the implantation peak next year, with the e-Social, which will unify the sending of information by the employer in relation to employees.

From the analysis of this scenario, the industry professionals began to seek new ways to meet the market changes. This is the case of Almeida, Porto and Associates accounting organization headquartered in São José dos Campos (SP) with 440 clients in its portfolio. The Sped dramatically changed the routine of this company and its customers, especially the creation of a Quality Management System, certified by ISO 9001, while reducing the use of paper, with the increase in traffic of digital information.

"Over the past four years, we have invested more than R$ 1 million in training, staffing and IT equipment. The processes were organized to prevent the financial impact to customers", says the counter Sergio Juliano dos Santos, director of HR and Quality, which currently manages the day to day of 110 employees. "Since 2009, we promote training on Sped to staff and customers. Also closed partnerships with several suppliers, enabling the migration of financial data of clients to another technology platform", explains the executive of the company created 35 years ago.

Another company that has been investing in technology because of Sped is Americanense Accounting, established 55 years ago in the city of Americana (SP). Since 2008, the company has injected around R$ 55 thousand in technology, training programs and software acquisition. According to the director Valmir Frizzarin, who directs 37 employees and services a portfolio of 99 clients, the Sped reflected in the improvement of our corporate culture". The systematic strengthened its relationship with customers because it requires a greater attention to guidelines, even before the occurrence of the events such as issuing invoices, financial transactions and assets", says the accountant, predicting to the future an increase of 30% in fees.

In recent years the Sped has attracted the attention of multinationals such as, for example, the U.S. Thomson Reuters which bought two Brazilian companies - the São Paulo FISCOSoft, supplier research and updated guidance on legislation, and the Minas Gerais Novaprolink, focused on software solutions. In the first half of this year, the Dutch Wolters Kluwer acquired the operations of São Paulo Prosoft Technology, founded 27 years ago, and revenues of approximately R$ 60 million per year. The multinational company, now known in Brazil as Wolters Kluwer Prosoft, absorbed 250 employees, the technical support area (São José dos Campos), and a portfolio of more than 150 thousand users. Besides that, it will have a national coverage, with almost 60 franchises.

"The Sped has been prodigal in generating positive results. The strategy is to launch products and packages, according to the profile of each company", says the CEO of Wolters Kluwer Prosoft in Brazil, Carlos Meni.

The new phase of the company has started to produce good fruit, presenting three new products to equalize time and resources in the accounting offices - one electronic document management, a tester of regular registration status of companies, and a third with function automate the issuance and management of no tax debts of legal entities.
"The gradual growth of the accounting industry is leading the company to accelerate the development of products to meet the demands. We identified needs in the area and launched other solutions, such as one focused on cloud computing", anticipates Meni, projecting a growth of around 30% by the end of 2013.
