Help Us Understand Your Technology Needs – Complete This 2-Minute Survey

SurveyCPA copyI have known Beth Bruck of XCM Solutions for many years. She was formerly the CCH rep for my area of the country. Last year Beth made a career enhancement and joined the XCM team.

Beth and I have had many long conversations about CPAs and how to help them improve their firms. We never run out of things to talk about on that topic!XCM

I (as SurveyCPA) am joining with Beth and XCM to ask all of you to participate in a 2-minute survey based on your firm’s technology. It will help guide both of our organizations in the future.

Here’s a link to the survey.

Keeping Pace With Technology

Yes, I must admit, keeping pace with all of the new technological advances, new devices, apps and numerous gadgets is quite a chore at times. But, don’t you just love all of the benefits technology brings to us now?

Last week while I was on vacation, I could tweet pictures on my private Twitter account so that my son and family could see the gigantic alligator we saw on a nature hike almost immediately. I also follow him and my daughter-in-law on twitter and really know and understand them better than I ever could before technology. I knew immediately how well my granddaughter was doing in the state spelling competition as soon as it happened even though I was unable to attend. I attempt to share lots of valuable information with accountants and their teams via my professional twitter – @cpamanagement.  I hope you will follow me.

As for business, I get all my news, weather and current business news (including numerous tweets by CPAs and CPA profession consultants, vendors, etc.) via my iPhone or iPad. I stay in touch via Twitter and Facebook. Which brings me to the subject of today’s post. I became aware of an article in the Journal of Accountancy titled – The iPad Decision – because Tom Hood, CEO of the Maryland Society of CPAs put it on his Facebook page.  (Thanks, Tom!)

You can’t possibly keep up with all of the reading that you need to do these days but you can enlist others to help you find the information you might need – – as I do via social media. Of course, LinkedIn is a great tool for CPAs, too.

If you are faced with The iPad Decision and wondering whether buying an iPad is what you should do – be sure to read the article in the Journal of Accountancy
