I’m always thinking about QuickBooks apps! While in London… oh goodness, anything that follows that phrase must be fantastic! And it was! London is densely populated, which means deep and engaging conversations about the same topic from many perspectives.
But back to my thoughts about QuickBooks apps… While in London, I was fortunate to listen to a panel discussion at QuickBooks Connect which revolved around app consulting. The discussion moved through: client needs, selection, recommending, implementing and supporting apps. Admittedly, most accounting experts didn’t think they would be spending a great deal of time on app consulting. But the reality is our clients are reaching out for help in the apps market. And, really, who better to guide them towards QuickBooks apps than their accountant?
App consulting is another good example of “who moved my cheese.” If we are truly steering our clients into more profit and a better understanding of their books, then we must acknowledge that apps are a way to increase efficiency and transparency. By utilizing apps, we create an opportunity for better management decisions. Of course, your accountant can help you determine the best apps for your business.
I personally enjoy app consulting. This robust conversation allowed me to observe how others are dealing with similar issues. Obviously, our clients are looking for help when making these decisions. It was refreshing to get a new perspective on how others are moving forward in this area.
