THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2021


Even before COVID-19, companies had been moving away from their manual, labor-intensive processes toward new, efficient automated systems, and automation and digital transformation trends are continuing to grow rapidly in 2021. Join us on Thursday, May 20, at 9 AM EST for a comparison of the technology solutions that companies are utilizing to transform their back offices.



Even before COVID-19, companies had been moving away from their manual, labor-intensive processes toward new, efficient automated systems.  The pandemic only underscored the need for reliable and streamlined systems as teams began working from home and cash flow became an immediate concern.

While automation and digital transformation are not new concepts, they are trends that are growing rapidly as we move through 2021.  During this session, we will provide an agnostic comparison of the technology solutions that companies are utilizing to transform their back offices. We will explore popular solutions, like QuickBooks Online,, Sage Intacct, Xero, and several others.
