It’s rare to leave Vegas on top. But that’s exactly what everyone did who attended the Sleeter Group’s annual Solutions conference, Solutions13. Wellspring Software attended the conference as an exhibitor. We had the chance to meet countless attendees all of whom were eager to learn not only about QuickBooks, but also about the many third-party products available in the market. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth to talk about QuickBooks check printing. A special thanks to the attendees who participated in our payments survey. Enjoy your Starbucks treats!!
Did you know that over 90% of the conference attendees pay payables through check printing, according to our survey? The next closest medium through which companies paid payables was used by less than 50% of those polled. In other words, checks are still far-and-away the most trusted method of payment.
We got to hear a number of great talks at the conference. Starting with Doug Sleeter’s discussion about trends in SMB accounting technology and how accountants, bookkeepers, and CPA’s alike need to be client-centric, fitting solutions to clients and not clients to solutions. This was a great way to open the conference, getting everyone in the right mindset. We were pleased to speak with many attendees later at our booth who were excited to find a product like PrintBoss that fit well with their clients’ needs. The first question we always ask is, do you or your clients print checks from multiple bank accounts? If the answer is yes, then PrintBoss is the right solution for your and their needs.
Brad Smith’s talk on embracing change in the SMB market and how Intuit plans to further assist small business success, gave a great indication where Intuit is going and what partners and users alike can expect from the accounting giant. According to Intuit’s CEO, Intuit is committed to actually helping shape our business future. We are very comfortable being part of the vision Intuit is bringing to small and mid-size businesses.
David Cieslak (a Wellspring Software partner) gave a fun and informative talk on the latest technology in the industry. From new ultrabooks, to smart phones, to Hot Tugs (floating hot tubs), David reviewed a number of products that can help (or not help) make businesses more productive.
All in all we had a great time at the Solutions13 conference and look forward to Solutions14 next year also at Caesars Palace. To everyone that stopped by our booth, thanks for talking to us and sharing your ideas. What’s nice is that this is one of those rare times when what happens in Vegas doesn’t have to stay in Vegas. We plan on taking everything we learned from the conference back home to St. Louis and using it to improve and better serve our current and future customers.
‘Til next year!
