Message From Doug



Lots going on this week! QuickBooks 2013 was released last week and we're releasing new information every day on what's new and what you need to know. See the next session for details.

Why should you attend the 2012 Accounting Solutions Conference? Well, have you tried to google "Accounting Software for Small Business" lately? There are over 60 Million results!

At the Sleeter Group, we're your filter on the solutions in the marketplace. We continually research the marketplace to identify the best products and best practices for small business management. We personally meet with and reviewed hundreds of developers and applications to find the companies and products we believe solve the accounting technology problems that you and your small business clients face every day.

The Sleeter Group's Annual Conference is your opportunity to attend, in person, a yearly "state of the market" for QuickBooks, online accounting, mobile and connected technologies that will help you and your small business clients work smarter, faster and more efficiently.

We bring you great speakers and top experts who will present over 60 sessions of in-depth demonstrations and give you expert advice. There is also a trade show where you can visit more than 60 exhibitors and ask them how their solutions will work for your clients. At the Conference, you get to do a deep dive into the best of those solutions in three information-packed days – a highly efficient use of your time and a solid investment in your future.

Last year, we introduced you to Xero, a very exciting company from New Zealand that is now up and running in the US. They have a compelling online accounting product they refer to as "Beautiful Accounting Software." Xero is the best example we've seen of the Zero-entry trend that reduces human data entry and improves accuracy of data in our systems. You'll also learn how Bill.com completely redesigns the processes of AR, AP and cash flow management. Sage will also be there with their new SageOne product that provides incredible team collaboration capabilities. CPA2Biz will have a major presence with their Trusted Business Advisor solutions including Intacct, XCM, Bill.com, and Confirmation.com.

Don't forget to cast your vote for your favorite Awesome Application. Voting is underway and you can vote everyday through September 28. I will be announcing the 2013 winners at the Conference.

I look forward to seeing you October 22-24, 2012 in Anaheim!
