*Program may be edited for length/audience* Software solutions designed around small business operations are increasingly sophisticated, automated and integrated. Not only are small businesses integrated with each other more tightly and more ubiquitously, cloud solutions are also tightly integrated with larger data sources like banks, payment processors, and payroll providers. This tight integration results in extreme levels of data automation that will, very quickly, replace up to 80% of the manual bookkeeping process for small businesses. During this forward-looking journey into small business innovation, Joe Woodard will provide a survey of these powerful new technologies, project the future of accounting and small business, and prepare current and future professionals to play in this midst of a radical and imminent paradigm shift. In addition, Joe details specific ways accountants can not only survive the technological disruptions taking place within the industry, but also leverage these technologies to scale their practices, increase profitability, and more effectively serve their clients.
