As a small business accounting and consulting advocate, The Sleeter Group makes it their business to know the SMB accounting marketplace. In fact, Doug Sleeter who founded the San Francisco Bay Area-based consulting company is the expert when it comes to assessing the value of accounting software and hardware solutions for accountants and small businesses. Dedicated to researching and finding the best accounting technology solutions available to help companies work smarter, faster and more efficiently, The Sleeter Group represents an independent view of the market.
The Sleeter Group’s mission is to find the most innovative and tested tools and systems to generate greater efficiencies. Solutions are evaluated solely on how they meet the demands of small businesses. Founder and President, Doug Sleeter initially started the company in 1994 to teach SMB’s how to use a relatively new solution at the time, QuickBooks, to streamline bookkeeping and better manage their business. Through consulting and seminars, it’s all about helping the small business owner grow, streamline, and add efficiencies to their processes.
One of the industry trends that Sleeter sees is much less of a focus on one piece of software to support every function. These days, solutions hone aspects of various business processes and integrate with each other, stitching together business application ‘chunks’ creating an ecosystem. Because of this ‘chunkification’ and integration, we are heading in the direction where data entry is becoming obsolete. This is exactly the vision we at Concur at striving to achieve through our solutions.
Last month at Sleeter’sAccounting Solutions Conference, Concur® Small Business edition was named as a 2013 “Awesome Application”. I accepted this prestigious award on behalf of Concur, signifying our commitment to making travel and expense management simple for small businesses everywhere. Words can’t express how honored we feel to have been recognized by The Sleeter Group. Thank you!
