Small Businesses Everywhere Need Accounting Help. In its recent whitepaper, SUM Innovation educates small businesses about the people, practices, and products that influence the modern accounting world.

SUM Innovation, one of the leading progressive accounting management and consulting practices in the United States, published "The Quick Guide to the Modern Accounting Ecosystem" ( Friday morning. SUM crafted the 10-page whitepaper to help small businesses navigate the ever-evolving collection of people, practices, and products that influence the modern accounting world.

“The industry is transforming so much due to technology and old-school accountants are way behind. Someone had to get the word out there,” SUM CEO Mathew Heggem said. “This whitepaper will help small businesses step into the current century with their accounting systems so they can focus on more important things without wasting time and money on practices of the past.”

The whitepaper lays out why companies need to understand modern accounting to thrive, and describes how they can save money and resources with efficient digital plumbing—the process of synchronizing data among the layers of the accounting ecosystem.

SUM promotes itself in the whitepaper as a firm of “Accounting Superheroes” and supports that claim by detailing its toolkit, full of resources on the cutting edge of accounting. Its passion to help small businesses comes with experience.

“Our knowledge of Xero—one of the more progressive accounting technology platforms— and the various alternatives helped a recent Software-as-a-Service client streamline and automate his finances,” Heggem said.

SUM has been doing just that since its creation in 2001 and wants to do the same for more small businesses. Its whitepaper makes a comprehensive case for how and why it can, and how and why it can do so better than any other accounting and consulting practices in the country.
