From small seeds great relationships (and great software!) grow
Some business relationships start with a bang, and some end that way too. But the most successful business relationships start small and grow slowly, gradually building trust, business knowledge and capacity. So it has been with H&R Block Canada and Jonah Group, who have seen a relationship that began modestly expand over time into the design, development and maintenance of a ground-breaking online financial services platform.
About H&R Block Canada
H&R Block has been serving Canadians for well over 40 years. As the country's leading tax service company, they endeavour to help their clients build a better financial future by providing fast and accurate tax preparation services, offering reliable bookkeeping and accounting support, and delivering tax assistance and solutions. Since 2013 H&R Block has also been a leader in supplying online DIY tax software to Canadians.
In 2011 Jonah Group began working with H&R Block Canada on the design and delivery of a set of relatively simple web-based tools, including an office locator, tax refund estimator, and RRSP calculator application, updated and refined annually.
Then, in 2013, looking to get into the DIY tax software business, H&R Block acquired a small tax software engine and hired Jonah Group to help rebrand, update and roll out their new service. This helped H&R Block to appreciate the value of a vendor who really cared about the outcome of their major initiatives. And so it was logical that when H&R Block took its next big step – commissioning a new tax engine – that they would turn to Jonah Group. Today, with that powerful new tax engine fully implemented, Jonah Group and H&R Block continue to work together and to explore new opportunities.
Dave Falkenberg is H&R Block Canada's Director of Product Development and Compliance. He has worked closely with The Jonah Group since his arrival at H&R Block Canada in 2014. Here he reflects on their long and fruitful partnership with Jonah Group.
In working with H&R Block to design and develop its online DIY Tax Engine, Jonah Group provided core design and development services from end to end, including web, mobile, business intelligence & infrastructure design.
