We are in day 3 (really day 2.5) of the Sleeter 2013 Accounting Solutions Conference out here in Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s been a great conference thus far with attendees eagerly soaking in as much QuickBooks how-to information as possible and vendors, like us, eagerly sharing as much solutions information as possible. It’s a symbiotic relationship between the two groups here, a relationship that the Sleeter Group has done a great job cultivating by providing numerous opportunities for interaction and discussion.
The conference began with a Sunday night ice-cream social. With chocolate and vanilla ice-cream to choose between and a whole plethora of candy, fruit, and nut toppings as well as decadent sauces, the conference got off on the right foot with accountants eagerly partaking in dessert and conversation. At the Wellspring Software booth (#407) we had the opportunity to talk with a good number of attendees. Most were interested to hear about how PrintBoss could help save them time and money printing checks onto blank check stock. Most were astonished to learn that for only $150 they could print to blank check stock from QuickBooks, saving them and their clients the hassle of carrying multiple check stocks, as well as eliminating the security risk of having bank information available on unused check stock lying around the office.
One attendee told us that on her way to Vegas for the Sleeter show, she got a call from the bank telling her that one of her client’s checks did not go through. She immediately became terrified that she had used the wrong check stock. Given the size of the check, this was a big issue and worry. She finished this story by commenting that with PrintBoss and using blank check stock this would never happen. You could never use the wrong check stock with PrintBoss, because PrintBoss handles all bank information and prints the MICR line and bank information on each check for you.
On Monday we saw and spoke with more attendees as they came to our booth enticed by the lure of a $5 Starbucks gift card for participating in a short survey. Our one minute survey about how companies pay payables started many conversations about the pros and cons of electronic payment methods. Everyone was interested to learn that PrintBoss, along with being the industry leader in check printing, also enables ACH file creation and has partnered with CSI to offer electronic payment through their globalVCard Paysystems. This prepaid virtual credit card makes it easy to authorize expenditures for employees in the field.
We are now into the final full day of the conference, with everything wrapping up tomorrow after the morning session. We look forward to speaking with more attendees and sharing the benefits of printing checks to blank check stock. For anyone here in Vegas at Caesar’s Palace attending the Sleeter Conference, stop by out booth to talk shop and receive a Starbucks gift card.
