LAS VEGAS – Nov. 8, 2010 – The winners of this year’s Awesome QuickBooks Add-Ons were announced today at the 2010 Accounting Solutions Conference, recognizing technologies that can be added to, or used alongside, QuickBooks to provide additional features and capabilities for the millions of small and mid-sized companies that rely on the world’s leading business accounting system. The awards are presented annually by The Sleeter Group, the nation’s largest network of small business technology consultants.
Recipients of the sixth annual Awesome QuickBooks Add-Ons honor are: SmartVault Corporation (www.smartvault.com) for its SmartVault V3 online document management solution; V-Technologies (www.vtechnologies.com) for ShipGear, an integrated shipping management system; Intuit (www.intuit.com), for the ViewMyPaycheck online employee portal and for the Intuit Statement Writer; bMobile Route Software (www.bmobileroute.com) for the bMobile Route Manager distribution management application; and webKPI LLC (www.webkpi.com) the for WebKPI Business Intelligence Reporting, which offers advanced financial planning and analysis tools.
“QuickBooks is an excellent accounting platform for most small businesses, but for some industry segments and niche entities, additional capabilities are needed to provide enhanced reporting, analysis, inventory management, e-commerce, distribution and other functions,” said Doug Sleeter, founder and president of The Sleeter Group. “This is where ‘add-on’ applications and services come in, integrating with QuickBooks to give managers the extra power they need to enhance their efficiency and productivity.”
The Sleeter Group continually studies the marketplace of add-on software and services that enhance the systems and workflow processes for small businesses. To qualify for the Awesome Add-On honor, technologies must seamlessly integrate with QuickBooks and provide intuitive design, ease-of-use and conformance with appropriate accounting standards. The Sleeter Group also examines applications designed to benefit users of other small business accounting systems, including Peachtree, BusinessVision, MAS and Microsoft Dynamics.
Held this year in Las Vegas, The Sleeter Group's annual Accounting Solutions Conference is attended by hundreds of accountants, bookkeepers, consultants and IT professionals, providing them with educational opportunities presented by industry experts, thought leaders and technology developers.
In addition to awarding the Awesome QuickBooks Add-On recognition each year, The Sleeter Group highlights recently introduced technologies that are emerging with potential benefits to the small business marketplace. For 2011, The Sleeter Group’s “New Products to Watch” are: eCommerceConnector from Webgility LLC (www.webgility.com); Bill & Pay from SkyHill Software (www.billandpay.com); and Analyzer AP from AuditMyBooks (www.auditmybooks.com).
