Small Businesses no longer have to be at a competitive disadvantage to their larger, better financed counterparts who have more resources at their disposal. Now small businesses and accounting professionals can learn how to collaborate through private portals and custom dashboards, discover new ways to pay bills, approve invoices, scan and upload expenses via smart phones, and monitor the financial health of their business anywhere, anytime. Accounting professionals who have registered can bring their small business clients for free.
“The wealth of information from expert presenters and local tech-smart businesses is unmatched compared to other industry events,” said Doug Sleeter, President of The Sleeter Group. “It’s very satisfying to meet with attendees and hear how they’ve been motivated by what they’ve learned; it’s a day long experience that delivers benefits year-round for the accountant and their small business clients.” View video message from Doug Sleeter.
