Last month’s Scaling New Heights conference was held in the historic and captivating city of New Orleans. The four-day event was filled with informative sessions that were geared towards training QuickBooks ProAdvisors to leverage the latest thought leadership, technology and training. Led by industry experts, the conference stressed the importance of adopting new cloud accounting technologies in order to run the most effective, efficient and forward thinking practice they can. It was exciting to see the level of enthusiasm all attendees displayed for modern accounting practices and how readily they recognized Receipt Bank as a vital tool in achieving that transition!
Reinforcing the significance of adapting and embracing the rapidly changing accounting landscape, Joe Woodard’s keynote address analyzed the components needed to become a #FirmOfTheFuture. So, how do you become a #FirmOfTheFuture? Firstly, begin by abandoning the traditional accounting model which is reactive in nature. Next, start to leverage cloud based technologies that will give you access to factual, real-time data. From there, utilize that new level of insight to become a trusted advisor to your client.
The keynote speech from Luis Sanchez, the global QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program Director, revolved around partnership. This went hand in hand with his huge announcement - the exciting new QuickBooks ProAdvisor Partnership with Receipt Bank!
The next morning’s general session featured a discussion between Joe Woodard and Receipt Bank’s Damien Greathead - where the overarching theme of the day was moving the role of the accountant and bookkeeper from scorekeeper to coach. Taking advantage of the cloud is an integral step in process automation and maximizing productivity. This message went hand in hand with what we here at Receipt Bank want to offer you - a way to modernize your practice by moving away from data entry towards data management and analysis.
Following this session, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intuit’s Small Business Financial Solutions Group Dan Werkinoff, took the stage. He walked us through the history of Intuit’s development and more specifically, how Intuit continuously adapts to the technological advancements in the industry. Intuit manages to adapt because they maintain their startup roots and listen to their customers needs. The data speaks for itself - QuickBooks Online now boasts over 1 million customers! #ThanksAMillion
