The pandemic has forever changed how we conduct operations, but what does this mean for your accounting department? Please join us as we discuss the new paperless world of accounting. As your organization explores the move to an electronic accounting reality, there are many things to keep top of mind, such as, cost, internal control integrity, accessibility, application integration, and audit preparation. We will also look at two of the most popular cloud-based accounting programs, QuickBooks Online and Sage Intacct. Both programs can be integrated with other cloud-based applications that will allow your organization to leverage technology to bolster your internal controls, streamline processes, and provide the financial information your organization needs to make decisions.
