In a world of new regulations and ever-improving standards, businesses need to drive towards leading the pack, rather than sitting behind the curve. That’s where BGL comes in, delivering innovative company compliance software to some 9,500+ companies across Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. BGL delivers innovative, multi-award-winning, thirdgeneration, cloud-based selfmanaged superannuation fund (SMSF), investment portfolio and company compliance management software to 9,500+ businesses in Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore and the United Kingdom. Yet, BGL doesn’t just specialise in compliance software, but has also ventured into delivering software for both end-toend investment portfolio management and self-managed superannuation funds (SMSF). By all regards, BGL isn’t a onetrick pony, as Ron explains in more detail. “BGL’s cloud product suite includes 3 integrated solutions; CAS 360 (Innovative company compliance, trust and AML management software); Simple Fund 360 (AI-powered SMSF administration software); and Simple Invest 360 (Endto-end investment portfolio management software). The BGL Suite integrates with over 350 industry-leading data feeds and Ecosystem partners to provide clients with a holistic compliance solution. Plus, the Suite’s automation and integration eliminate manual and duplicated data entry, saving clients time and boosting their productivity, profitability, growth and team satisfaction.” Through these offerings, BGL serves clients from multiple industries, including legal entities, accountants, financial planners, firms of all sizes, and individual SMSF trustees With all of that in mind, let’s turn our attention to the crux of BGL’s success – it’s values and culture. These pillars of the business are growing ever more common across industry leaders, after all, company ethics and corporate responsibility are becoming an ever-greater focus for consumers and clients looking to partner with brands. In this way, BGL has ensured its position remains pacesetting and its values absolutely important to the day to day operations of the company. “Our values are Integrity - being honest and transparent with our team, clients, partners and community. Passion - promoting lifelong learning and the pursuit of personal and professional development. Collaboration - working with our team, clients, partners and community to achieve success. Perseverance - motivating and inspiring our team to keep moving forward despite challenges. Diversity - creating and fostering an inclusive and equitable workplace culture where everyone is valued and respected. “BGL has a client-first culture that permutates through the entire organisation producing remarkable moments for our clients - over and over again.” By enriching its company culture towards these values, BGL has managed to nurture an extremely talented pool of team members who are, ultimately, driving the business everforwards. Innovating, creating, and delivering best-in-class solutions. It can be no surprise then, that BGL’s future is bright, as Ron moves on to discuss. “With an annual growth of around 15%, BGL has a long and prosperous future. Our plans focus on 3 areas; Releasing software in more overseas jurisdictions; Developing more smarts in our existing software’ and building better internal systems. In the past 12 months, we have also focused on improving integration between our products and external practice management solutions. This integration allows clients to efficiently manage their client and contact data across four apps (BGL’s CAS 360, Simple Fund 360, Simple Invest 360 and a thirdparty practice management software) in a single database - a dream for any professional firm. The integration makes the management of SMSF, company, trust, and individual clients/contacts seamless. “In October 2022, BGL released its latest product in development, BGL SmartDocs 360, in closed BETA. An AI-powered solution, BGL SmartDocs 360 helps businesses unlock their full potential by transforming unstructured data into smart digital data. Initially developed as part of our compliance solutions, BGL SmartDocs 360 will soon be available as a retail and developer (no-code AI) solution,” Ron concludes.
