Context

The digital revolution continues to push accounting and consulting firms to modernize. Employees are one of the driving forces behind this digitalization, demanding more and more innovation in their daily lives.

 

Mazars, the leading independent player in the sector in France, has focused on the optimization and improvement of tools already used by their staff, starting with the Microsoft Office software suite: PowerPoint, Excel and Word.

 

The UpSlide solution, which allows you to create flawless documents in record time on the Office suite, therefore appeared the most relevant choice for Mazars.

Rather than increasing the number of platforms, we have chosen to streamline the use of our current tools to bring immediate benefits to our employees and therefore ensure a good adoption rate.

Challenge

Winning the competition for talent: attracting and retaining employees who are increasingly interested in new technologies and innovative tools to make their daily lives easier.

 

“Professionals expect a company like Mazars to provide them with the latest tools to help them work more efficiently”, says Firas, an UpSlide user since 2011.

The UpSlide project

Mazars was one of UpSlide’s first clients in 2011. Ten years later, Mazars still trusts us, and its staff – who are based in over 50 countries – benefit from UpSlide every day.

 

Today, UpSlide supports Mazars with training videos focused on the tool and provides its expertise on Power BI in order to help create the financial reports of the future.

The advantage of UpSlide is that it is completely integrated in Word, Excel and PowerPoint in the form of a tab. UpSlide is useful for eliminating low value-added tasks, allowing users to concentrate on their core business.
