New Apps for the Wired Accountant

Brett Owens of the WebCPA/Accounting Tomorrow website cites two reasons that many software developers are starting to emphasize software on the Web vs. PC-specific software: ease of design and ability to access the app even when not at your laptop or desktop. Three new products which Owens feels have particularly impressive potential are Evernote, a web-based combination of post-it notes and the old Rolodex; Xero, a cloud-based future competitor for QuickBooks and Peachtree and Outright, a cloud-based alternative to bookkeeping which provides access to Web banking sites, credit cards sites and Paypal.

While I certainly cannot match Brian Tankersley, Gregory LaFollette and others in the accounting technology area, I do point out Mr. Owens article for those who wish to check out new trends in Web-based accounting products.
