Are you going to the QuickBooks Connect conference in San Jose, CA October 21-23? If you plan to miss it, or haven’t heard of it, we suggest you look into it. The conference itself is only a day and a half, but is bookended by QuickBooks training sessions covering everything from QuickBooks and Excel, to tax time and QuickBooks. This is the first end user conference Intuit has put on for the QuickBooks market since the 2007 conference in Dallas, Texas.
The beauty of the 2014 rendition in San Jose is that Intuit is structuring the conference not only for accountants and bookkeepers, but for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Intuit has defined sessions by four categories: Accountant, Entrepreneur, Small Business, and Developer. The agenda then defines sessions by which category or categories apply. Attendees have the option to go to any number of sessions per time period. This gives businesses the opportunity to bring several employees from different departments to not only learn but network.
As always, collaboration and network building are key components of the conference. With breaks around the coffee machines and among the exhibitors in the exhibit hall, attendees will not only have a chance to mingle with each other, but get to see what is happening in the QuickBooks marketplace. All exhibitors at QuickBooks Connect have to work with the QuickBooks Online API. This is part of Intuit’s push to get users to the Cloud with QuickBooks Online. Despite this push from the accounting software giant, QuickBooks users have maintained their loyalty and trust in the desktop versions. Nonetheless, Intuit remains determined to move the market online.
Here at Wellspring Software, we are excited that no matter which way QuickBooks users go, to the cloud or remaining with desktop, they can all use PrintBoss to print QuickBooks checks onto blank check stock. With our integration as a printer driver, PrintBoss can connect with all versions as long as they have access to a printer. This way everyone who prints QuickBooks checks from more than one bank account can save time and money
by printing from all accounts onto one check stock.
If you’re heading to San Jose in October, let us know because we would love to meet you, hear about your business, and talk about your QuickBooks check printing needs. In the meantime, or if you don’t plan on attending QuickBooks Connect, try PrintBoss for free for 30 days with our free trial!
We look forward to seeing everyone in California!
