Killer apps are out there … so find them. Ask your peers what they’re using. CPA Practice Advisor will continue to make you aware of apps you might want to consider. (See a list of apps Randy Johnston recommends at www.CPAPracticeAdvisor.com/go/3257. Isaac O’Bannon mentions a few on page XX of this issue or at www.CPAPracticeAdvisor.com/go/XXXX, and Greg LaFollette will be regularly sharing about apps and their practical application in tax and accounting firms with his regular column, “Putting the i in Practice”). You won’t be doing your clients’ taxes on a phone, but you can do client payroll, time tracking, bookkeeping, pay bills, and email to name a few. You’ll be more efficient, collaborative and in control from anywhere.
I find it funny that the letter I, which represents “self,” is now the catalyst for collaboration and teamwork over the Internet, freeing people to do what want to do most — live.
