AbacusNext Shares Its Vision for the Future of the Accounting Profession with Top Thought Leaders

AbacusNext invited the Accounting Profession’s leading minds behind‐the‐scenes for

a tour of their facilities and a preview of their latest tech offerings

San Diego, CA, October 2, 2017AbacusNext®, the largest Technology‐as‐a‐Service (TaaS) provider for the legal and accounting professions, hosted an exclusive, behind the scenes VIP event in La Jolla, California for thought leaders and influencers specializing in accounting technology. Attendees were personally introduced to AbacusNext executives and staff who shared AbacusNext’s vision for the future of accounting practices globally.

Over three days, attendees were taken on a tour of AbacusNext headquarters, presented with a Dell laptop with ninety days of free service to the Abacus Private Cloud (APC) and its integrated accounting software solutions, provided product demos of the full AbacusNext portfolio, taken behind‐the‐scenes at one of the five AbacusNext datacenters, and given a chance to share their professional expertise on how best to serve the needs and demands of today’s accounting practice.

“AbacusNext is honored to have hosted such an exceptional group of thought leaders and experts,” said Alessandra Lezama, CEO of AbacusNext. “APC is a game changer for the accounting profession, and we’re proud to share our vision of enabling accounting practices with technology to better compete in today’s fast‐paced digital world.”

The center piece of AbacusNext’s vision for the future of accounting practices is Abacus Private Cloud, the most secure fully managed private cloud on the market today. Accountants have become familiar with piecemeal hosting solutions, and the ancillary benefits of the cloud in recent years, but APC offers advantages on different scale entirely.

“I came to the AbacusNext VIP event with QuickBooks hosting on my mind,” said Rick Armstrong, founder of QB Pro Consulting, a cloud consultancy firm specializing in the integration of accounting technology solutions. He continued, “The Abacus team left me with a mission to help server huggers everywhere. Thanks for the intro to the future of business!”

AbacusNext looks forward to building on the relationships created during their behind‐the‐scenes event. Deeper collaborations are planned to help AbacusNext bring even more compelling accounting‐specific technology solutions to market, and help them realize their vision for the future of the accounting profession.

“It is clear that AbacusNext means business when it comes to engaging the accounting community,” said Mathew Heggem, CEO of SUM Innovation, the Manhattan based accounting management and consulting firm. “This experience was exactly what I needed to gain the trust and understanding necessary to advocate for the company's products and services.”
