The Sleeter Group announced today that they've opened the application period for their Awesome Add-On Awards, with a focus this year on developer consulting. This is the seventh year of the awards, which recognize products that help small businesses by integrating with QuickBooks or complementing the most widely-used accounting program. Since The Sleeter Group is the largest national network of small business tech experts, it makes sense that they've turned some of their attention to proactive measures: Helping software developers at the front-end of building such programs so that they have a better grasp on what SMBs really need and want their business management systems to do. There's more about the Awesome Add-On Awards at http://www.cpapracticeadvisor.com/go/3293. Developers who are interested in being a part of the program can also access specific details and the application.
