Welcome to Tallie’s weekly roundup! This has been a huge week for Tallie and our partners. Below we cover the CPA Practice Advisor 2015 Innovation Awards, the AICPA Practitioners Symposium and Tech+ Conference, how accounting technology can help accountants overcome obstacles, Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference 2015, and our favorite app of the week.
We’re extremely excited to announce that we have won the CPA Practice Advisor 2015 Tax and Accounting Technology Innovation award for the second year in a row. This year our full bi-directional expense management integration with Intacct was recognized with the award, which allows you to access your Intacct clients and multi-entity data through a single set of credentials.
The American Institute of CPAs Practitioners Symposium and Tech+ Conference 2015 took place this week at Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida. One of the many highlights of the conference included a joint presentation by AICPA CEO Barry Melancon and chair Tommye Barie speaking to changes in technology, the future of peer review, and the need for analytics in accounting.
Theresa Mackintosh of Wolters Kluwer and Dan Hood of Accounting today discussed how adopting automated technology can help accountants overcome obstacles they face. Theresa pointed out the benefits of automated software, which includes a significant increase in workflow efficiency, the availability of vital information, and the ability to integrate with other software. She also argued that accountants need a high level of integration in accounting software so that they can better serve their clients’ needs.
