Our intuitive technology and talented people are what makes us iplicit. That’s why we want you to get to know the masterminds behind our true cloud accounting software firm, one by one.
Next up, we put our product specialist, Adam Clark, in the hot seat to discuss all-things technology, the title of his autobiography, and the big screen character he most relates to…
What is your first memory of tech?
It’s probably showing my age, but my first memory of tech would be getting a ZX Spectrum back in the 1980s!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
A racing driver. I was really into cars and always buying automotive magazines to check out the latest models. My dad was also keen on Formula 1, which I used to watch with him.
How would you describe iplicit to a new recruit?
An exciting place to work which allows you to contribute to the enhancement of the award-winning iplicit product. In addition, you can be a part of a really friendly team where everyone goes the extra mile to help each other.
Who can you rely on to cheer up the team on a rainy day?
Ian can always cheer up the team with his ‘jokes’ and Elvis impressions!
Choose a character (cartoon/film/TV/book) to describe your work personality
As I’m a big Star Wars fan I have to go with someone from the franchise, so I think it would be Obi-Wan Kenobi. He always comes across as calm and is good at focusing on the challenge at hand, which hopefully I do when I’m at work.
Tell us one truth and one lie…
I have completed the London Marathon three times, and I delivered one of my children single-handedly, without any help from a midwife.
What would the title of your autobiography be?
‘Marching to the beat of my own drum’ — I play the drums and so was searching for a metaphor based around that!
If you were a piece of technology, which would you be and why?
I think I would be Siri or Alexa, as I like helping people — although my wife would probably say I need to improve my listening skills to compete with the likes of them!
What do you think is going to be the next big thing for ERP?
Artificial intelligence — using machine learning to code accounting entries and provide more automation, as well as the ability to give voice commands to the ERP system.
Where do you see iplicit in five years?
I think it will have grown substantially to become a market leader in the cloud-based accountancy software industry.
