Your local small business systems experts

We love the way that technology can transform the way you do business - but we also understand that getting your head around new systems can be overwhelming. We bridge the gap between people and technology, helping you to get your accounting software working for you, and not the other way around!

We’re all about working smarter, not harder.

The opportunity to support other business owners in running a business and finding balance to enjoy the things they love is what we’re here for. We love seeing our clients finally achieve freedom from administrative tasks and the peace of mind that comes with greater financial clarity.

Balance is what matters to us, too (and we don’t just mean the books!). We’re closely connected to our local community through family, sport, school and community volunteering and embrace all that’s great about our coastal lifestyle here in Magical Mangawhai.

Meet Michelle

Blue Wave was founded by Michelle Morrison in 2019. Michelle is an experienced and award-winning bookkeeper - named ICNZB Emerging Bookkeeper of the year in 2020 - but her ability to help others understand software systems and put them to work for their business is what sets her apart. 

Michelle has worked within multiple industries, developing experience across IT accounting systems, management reporting and day-to-day accounting. This experience in business optimisation through accounting software inspired her to step out on her own to help more small business owners leverage the strength of cloud solutions.

Michelle is a Xero Certified Advisor, a certified member of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers and has trusted relationships with accountants and tax agents throughout New Zealand.

Down-to-earth, articulate and approachable, Michelle takes the overwhelm and complexity out of the often daunting process of setting up or understanding new software. Think of her like your software sidekick, ensuring you have the knowledge and confidence to grow your business. With her help, you can free up time for the people and things you love, and sleep a little easier at night knowing exactly where your numbers stand.

"For years I was doing my GST returns by writing all my expenses and income manually into a cash book and keeping all my receipts in a folder…..then I met Michelle and she introduced me to Xero and Hubdoc. This has made my life (and that of my accountant) so much easier. Michelle was great at giving advise on the right product for me and she came to my house several times to help me set it all up. Great service! I can highly recommend Michelle from Blue Wave Solutions!"
