Remembering Joel Oliver

Today marks 1 year since we sadly lost our founder, friend and pioneer of MyFirmsApp, Joel Oliver. We’ll be using today to reflect and remember with great fondness Joel and everything he did for the company.

Since Joel left us, the company, senior leadership team and our colleagues have worked tirelessly to continue to develop and build the company he started. The aim was and still is to  provide a lasting legacy to his name that he’d be proud of and to also support the Oliver family, our people and our customers.

In the past twelve months we’ve built a completely new and modern technology platform for OneApp together with new training and marketing services to help our customers and their clients get the most from their App.  These new developments will launch in February 2020 and will allow us to accelerate the development of new and exciting features and services. Our mission is for MyFirmsApp to remain the clear market leader in mobile Apps for accounting firms worldwide and in turn keep Joel’s legacy and dream alive.

In addition to continuing to drive the business forward the team at MyFirmsApp have undertaken many fundraising activities to raise money in Joel’s name, including coffee mornings, the Great North Run and Movember. We’re very proud to have so far raised almost £5,000 to donate to Macmillan who cared so well for Joel last year.

We’ll be continuing our fundraising efforts in 2020 where we’ll be supporting the development of ‘Joel’s Caffe’ at Sunshine Corner, a local community Church near Darlington which helps disadvantaged children, teens and young adults as they face some of society’s greatest challenges.

It’s somewhere very close to Joel’s heart where he spent a lot of his free time and often described it as ‘the highlight of his week’.

If anyone is keen to learn more about this ongoing work, the impact it has and would like to contribute then please do let us know.

On behalf of the Oliver family and everyone at MyFirmsApp we’d like to wish all of our customers and friends a Merry Christmas and successful 2020.
