Steve Leavitt, General Manager, Exact Online US
In a recent post on Intuit Accountants News Central Steve Leavitt, GM Exact Online US, sets up a compelling argument as to why you, the ProAdvisor and accounting professional should be considering serving the small business manufacturing and wholesale distribution market segment.
His key points are: The economy is turning around; small businesses are investing in people, technology and infrastructure and as they grow they will likely outgrow their current system of spreadsheets.
In his post Steve refers to a study they did recently with Accounting Today that revealed a disconnect between accounting professionals who recommend software but do not implement it. Really? Don't leave that revenue on the table! We did our own survey recently and found that less than 15% of our subscribers recommend warehouse/distribution and/or manufacturing software. Based on what Steve writes in his article, that percentage could/should be higher.
