On September 16-17, we are excited to participate in the QuickBooks Accounting Virtual Conference, a Woodard® event. This is a free event for accounting professionals.
The purpose of the event is training. With over 5,000 accountants having registered for the conference, Intuit says it is the largest training event for QuickBooks accounting professionals. The two day event will cover training on both QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online. While the majority of training will be on QuickBooks Online, the opportunity to learn about what’s new with QuickBooks Desktop is exciting for many of the ProAdvisors out there servicing millions of clients on the desktop editions.
The majority of the trainings sessions will cover QuickBooks Online Certification exam prep. This is a 5 part course spanning the two days. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn what’s new in QuickBooks Online, as well as best practices when converting clients from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online. Attendees can listen in on keynote sessions as well, such as Jim McGinnis’ “Firm of the Future” talk, and another on selecting the right payroll system.
Beyond going to keynotes and general sessions, there will also be ample time for networking with fellow attendees and visiting the virtual exhibit hall. This is a great opportunity to learn about the many third party products in the QuickBooks market. With the rise of QuickBooks Online, Intuit is relying more and more heavily on their third party app developers. It is widely known that parity with the QuickBooks Desktop versions will be met with third party QuickBooks Online add-ons. So this is an effective time to get to know some of these apps for solutions to you and your clients’ needs.
Each virtual exhibitor booth will have materials for download and you can come in and live chat with reps from each company, just like a live conference. PrintBoss will be in the virtual exhibition hall, and we hope you’ll stop by to learn about blank check printing and how it can save your accounts payable team time and money.
We look forward to seeing everyone (virtually of course) at the virtual conference.
