SmartVault Wins Awesome QuickBooks Add-On Award

Top industry honor recognizes SmartVault as a leader in integration, ease of use, and design

HOUSTON, TX – November 2, 2010 – SmartVault, a leading provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) document storage and sharing solutions, today announced that it was honored with a 2011 Awesome QuickBooks Add-on award by The Sleeter Group. Of the hundreds of programs on the market that are designed to work with QuickBooks, SmartVault was selected as one of only six technologies to be recognized. The Awesome QuickBooks Add-on award signifies that SmartVault is among the most productive and effective technologies designed to enhance QuickBooks, and that it meets the highest standards of design, ease of use, and conformance with appropriate accounting standards.
SmartVault built a reputation around its uniquely integrated plug-in for QuickBooks, which offers customers a seamless experience for scanning, uploading, and finding documents within a familiar application. Last year, SmartVault expanded its service offering beyond the QuickBooks user to provide file storage and file sharing capabilities for all business documents—providing a single solution to securely store, view, and exchange files. SmartVault continues to enhance its Document Portal to provide users with robust, easy to use document storage and file sharing capabilities. In October 2010, SmartVault announced the availability of its Software Developers Kit (SDK), which opens the door for third-party application developers to easily integrate with SmartVault’s award-winning document management service. Currently, the company is working with several beta development partners with general availability of the SDK planned for release early 2011.

As the largest network of small business technology consultants, The Sleeter Group has members throughout the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean. The awards will be formally announced on November 8 at the 2010 Accounting Solutions Conference in Las Vegas—an annual event that draws hundreds of accountants, bookkeepers, consultants, and IT professionals, and provides them with educational opportunities presented by industry experts, thought leaders, and technology developers.

“SmartVault was selected as one of this year’s Awesome QuickBooks Add-ons because it provides great document storage and file sharing features and seamless integration with QuickBooks that many accounting professionals and businesses require,” said Doug Sleeter, founder and president of The Sleeter Group. “With several new capabilities recently launched, and by providing third-party application developers with the tools to integrate document storage and file sharing into their applications, small and mid-sized companies can leverage fully integrated technologies to significantly increase efficiency.”

“We are honored to be recognized by The Sleeter Group, not only for the breadth of our document management service, but also for our leadership role in the development of technologies that will integrate products and services together to enhance workflow,” stated SmartVault founder and CEO, Eric Pulaski. “There are several products and services designed for the accounting and finance markets, but there has been little focus on integrating them to work together. We predict that the next few years will bring true innovation via technology that melds applications together—creating ‘super solutions’ that offer the ability to attach, view, and share documents across leading applications.”
