Accountants Need to Speak Technology

As accountants, we are our clients’ most trusted business advisors. What may surprise us is how many of them also turn to us for technology advice.

Business finances + personal finances = not a great situation especially when all the business’ financial data is in an accounting software such as Quicken and intermingled with personal finances.

If it’s an absolute necessity to bring the over the history, there are tools that can help you merge data from Excel to QuickBooks.
