    Jim Bourke was hands-down the most passionate, smart, and engaging accounting speaker I have heard. Very well informed with clear recommendations and thorough answers.

    If you haven't already done so, you should take a look at Xero. The APIs make it possible to feed most transactions directly into the system and automatically file them into the appropriate categories. This has reduced our overhead tremendously and our accountant loves us.

      Yuriy, I completely agree. Xero is also very affordable. And, I use the integrations with FreshBooks and Citibank to save time.

      We're actually close to moving from FinancialForce to Intacct. I never heard of Xero - looks interesting.
