About Gail Emmerick the creator of the No1 simple accounting system for small business
FiGG Excel Accounting Solutions was founded based on demand for the skills of the owner Gail Meryl Emmerick. She obtained her accounting degree qualifying as top student at the University of Pretoria. SARS, which was then know and The Receiver of Revenue approached her to work for them after qualifying which she accepted. Within a couple of months Gail was promoted to an inspector. The first female inspector in the country. After learning all she wanted to learn at SARS she moved on to the Private Sector. Once in the Private Sector, at the age of 25 Gail became known as an accountant who found everything that was going wrong in your business and implemented solutions to fix it.
By the age of 27 Gail started her own business turnaround firm and by word of mouth only, she would work for any 3 Medium to Large companies at a time. Many of these companies would be repeat clients when they required a project leader due to rapid growth, mergers and acquisitions or wished to implement new systems. Fraud investigations also soon became part of her portfolio of services.
Many of these clients would have sales and marketing orientated managers, who would leave the company to start their own small businesses and they would ask Gail to help them. She had been exposed to every accounting system known to mankind and she was so frustrated that not one of them gave her everything she believed a business owner needs to manage their business quickly and simply. As such, Gail then formed FiGG Excel Accounting Solutions, a simple accounting system for small business, to recruit people for the new clients and do all the Registrations at CIPC, SARS, Labour etc. She would train them on their admin procedures and prepare their monthly management accounts, Annual Financial Statements and Submit their Income Tax etc.
By 2010, 20 years later, FiGG had so many clients that Gail decided to no longer offer her services as Business Turnaround service to the larger companies, but to focus on her small business clients. By this time, Gail had designed and developed dozens if not hundreds of unbelievable magical Excel reports and ways to calculate easily and quickly everything any entrepreneur will ever need to monitor, manage, and control their business. If you are wondering, she remained single, had no children and her work was her income, her hobby, her family, and entertainment 7 days a week.
By 2012 Gail had written a full, integrated accounting system for Small Business in Excel, the world’s most popular software and she designed over 40 million formulas in the background that requires the user to follow a simple a 1,2,3 step input to automatically deliver every report a small business owner needs. Every user in the world is in awe of what Gail and Excel can do, even Microsoft awarded the FiGG Small business accounting system membership status after a 90-minute presentation.
The design, build, content and SEO optimisation of FiGGs website was done for Gail by The Best Digital Agency, UK.
