AccountantsWorld founders Dr. Chandra Bhansali and Sharada Bhansali were both once again named to the Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting list by Accounting Today magazine for 2016. They have now achieved a combined 18 awards in the Top 100 list.
For more than 16 years, the couple has transformed the accounting profession by designing highly acclaimed, cloud-based solutions for professional accounting, payroll, document management and more. Winners are nominated by industry professionals and peers who are asked to identify who they believe are the most influential people in the sector.
"For us to be consistently named among the most influential people in accounting each year is an incredible honor," said Dr. Chandra Bhansali, CEO and co-founder. "It is gratifying to see that our peers recognize the achievements of not only the two of us, but our entire team. This recognition further fuels our passion to continue developing innovative tools to better serve accountants and their clients."
Since the company's inception in 1999, AccountantsWorld has been a pioneer in leveraging the power of the Internet to help accountants advance their practices. Chandra and Sharada led the effort to create a complete suite of fully integrated, cloud-based products that puts accountants back in control of their core offerings, while also fostering greater collaboration with their clients. And unlike most other solutions providers, AccountantsWorld has made an unwavering commitment to professional accountants by never selling its products or services directly to their clients.
AccountantsWorld continues to enhance its products every year, and most recently added an integrated bill payment feature to Accounting Power, which received a five-star rating from CPA Practice Advisor. This focus on continued innovation has earned AccountantsWorld countless product awards, including "Best Small CPA Firm Solution" and "Best Cloud Power Solution" by K2 Enterprises.
"As technology continues to advance, we will remain focused on helping accounting professionals grow their practices and strengthen client relationships by empowering them with cutting-edge software solutions," said Sharada Bhansali, co-founder of AccountantsWorld. "Whether it's via mobile platforms, third-party integrations or strategic partnerships, we strive to make their professional lives easier and help them stay ahead of the game."
