We launched the automation of the Benefits A/P process last week and agree that CPA's should not be entering data but analyzing, reconciling, and forecasting data. Thus, the topic was timely and useable.


Reshma Azeez, CFSA, Tax Professional

The program was short and precise to the concept. It clearly described about the usage of accounting automation how relevant it is in the business.

This topic is absolutely relative at this point in time and if you don't get started now on automating processes you will be left behind.
