Accounting Today: Cloud, QuickBooks Alternatives Dominate Sleeter Keynote
Las Vegas (November 7, 2011)
By Seth Fineberg, Accounting Today
QuickBooks alternatives and cloud-based accounting were the main themes of Doug Sleeter’s opening keynote address at his group’s annual conference, as he stressed how the profession is clearly moving in new directions and accountants need to think about changing how they work.
Sleeter spoke to an estimated audience of over 700 at the 2011 Accounting Solutions Conference in Las Vegas.
“We found that most attendees have come here not just to learn about QuickBooks,” said Sleeter. “There are paradigm shifts all over the accounting technology world. The future is here, and it’s all about zero data entry and about how you work. A big feature of this conference is about turning the corner. Just providing tax returns and financials is not enough. We are here to help guide clients and use the numbers to help them make better decisions.”
