Ecosystem provides product roadmap as a visual guide to an expansive marketplace.



Accountex is focused on educating the accounting community through an inclusive approach, and the Ecosystem is a direct representation of that as a product resource guide.

Accountex released an updated version of the Accounting Technology Ecosystem® concluding the highly successful 13th annual accounting technology conference and expo. The original ecosystem was released in February with the intent of being a living document that grows as technology changes. Additions are made quarterly based on submissions as well as changes in the product marketplace; there are now over 400 companies featured on the landscape.

Business accounting technology is an expansive marketplace that offers the solutions that are the backbone to operations. Kacee Johnson, one of the designers of the ecosystem, contributed two articles to the Accountex Blog that help explain how the ecosystem works and where it is headed in the future.

New additions to the Ecosystem include: Microsoft, SkyStem, and KickServ, Canon and Ledger Docs. The Accounting Technology Ecosystem is free for download at and vendors who would like to submit their product for review can add their solution via the website form.

RD Whitney, Executive Director of Accountex, commented on the overwhelming response to the ecosystem, “Accountex is focused on educating the accounting community through an inclusive approach, and the Ecosystem is a direct representation of that as a product resource guide.” He continued, “What is a differentiating factor about this product guide is it equally highlights every option in each type of category rather than giving preference to any one suite, or only focusing on the big players. We want to make sure the accounting community is educated on all of the different types of technologies available, as well as who delivers the best of breed solutions for each category. The response has been incredible and will only continue to grow as will the ecosystem.”

The Accounting Technology Ecosystem was the foundation of the User Favorite Awards which were announced at the 2016 conference. Thousands of users cast votes over a four month period choosing one solution from each category and ranking it on their favorability of the solution. A cumulative scoring system then determined the winner of each of the twenty-seven categories.

Accountex, the leading independent conference on cloud accounting technology, provides a three-day schedule focused around the solutions that move accounting forward. The educational conference offers CPE with content from more than a single vendor perspective. Sessions are taught by experts, resulting in a high-caliber learning experience with real-world lessons and practical takeaways that can be implemented seamlessly.

The Accountex expo brings together the largest selection of technology solutions and offers professionals in-person time to learn about the latest upcoming trends. The conference is the premier event of the year for the accounting professional and add-on developer community. Accountex will be held at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts September 6-8, 2017. Sponsor opportunities are available at
