AccountantsWorld makes significant enhancements to ACCOUNTING POWER® with primary focus on mobility and complete accounting.

November 13, 2014 — AccountantsWorld, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for accountants, has announced major enhancements to its popular ACCOUNTING POWER® software, part of its complete suite of cloud-based applications. These enhancements are designed to accommodate a more mobile audience on smartphones and tablets in addition to its availability across all browser platforms. Enhancements include expanded tools for financial analytics, including a comprehensive Dashboard, financial reporting capabilities, and bill payment approval process to help accountants perform complete accounting services more efficiently. A streamlined setup process, more intuitive navigation, and overall operational and archiving advances have been implemented, all designed with the critical needs of accounting professionals in mind.

“The entire platform has been optimized from the ground up for display on mobile devices, tablets, and across all browsers” said Sharada Bhansali, Executive VP and Co-Founder of AccountantsWorld. “Our reorganized Dashboard provides an expanded graphical interface with more useful and robust charts, data, and reports. With our enhanced software, uploading and editing e-statements are now easier, with the ability to add an alias ’on the fly‘ when importing credit cards and on bank transactions. This function, which usually takes hours, can now be done in minutes using ACCOUNTING POWER®”.

ACCOUNTING POWER® now allows three years for open transactions, and up to two for closed years, and provides the full range of letters based on AICPA guidelines that accounting practices need. In addition, ACCOUNTING POWER® now offers enhanced capabilities for Not-for-Profit organizations. 

“ACCOUNTING POWER® makes it extremely easy to archive reports and financials and share them with your clients,” said Dave Munnell, Director of Product Development at AccountantsWorld. “You can create a custom report set that is automatically archived and made available to your client as soon as you close a period. This provides users with consistent reporting and archiving, which is now easier and fully automated. And now you can keep your financials and reports for as long as you want,” continued Dave. Accounting Power also has improved flexibility, making the initial setup more streamlined and eliminating the usually-required accounting formatting.

 These new enhancements continue to strengthen the family of AccountantsWorld products. ACCOUNTING POWER® puts control back into the hands of accountants, and makes client accounting both highly efficient and more profitable. By combining all accounting functions into one unified cloud-based accounting system, Accounting Power practically eliminates key time wasters, streamlining client accounting and reducing the time accounting firms spend on client overhead by 30-50%.

AccountantsWorld announces a major redesign of Website Relief

AccountantsWorld Introduces a Major Redesign of Website Relief – Website Builder Solution Designed Exclusively For Accountants.

AccountantsWorld is proud to announce a major redesign to Website Relief, its cloud-based solution designed to help accounting firms create websites and virtual offices. The new Website Relief makes it easier than ever for accountants to build websites that engage and inform both existing and potential new clients.

For over a decade, Website Relief has been a pioneer in helping accountants build fully customized sites that engage and inform new prospects and securely deliver useful tools and information to existing clients. The new Website Relief takes AccountantsWorld’s leadership in the website space to a new level. It offers the widest selection of professionally designed themes to allow accountants to design and launch attractive, easy-to-use websites in less time than ever before. And firms can create unlimited pages for their site and add them to their own menus for customized content and navigation.

But even more significantly, the new Website Relief offers a feature set unmatched by any other website building tool for accounting firms

  • All Website Relief sites are automatically optimized for display across multiple devices, including mobile phones and tablets. Recent research indicates that over half of small-business owners now research products and services for their businesses on their mobile devices. Website Relief’s optimization ensures that accountants’ sites will be presented beautifully, regardless of how viewers choose to access them.
  • With an upgraded platform based on HTML-5 and the latest web standards, the new, easy-to-use and flexible Website Relief provides improved search engine optimization, which means a higher ranking (and more leads) for websites with strong content.

Using Website Relief’s powerful and flexible features, users can: 

  • Personalize website content with firm logos, custom pages, and uploaded images.
  • Design "slider panels" to display a moving banner of multiple images across any page.
  • Include Website Relief’s unique interactive Client Survey to gather direct feedback from clients.
  • Add customizable links to Google Maps on the Contact Us page.
  • Insert access to social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter on any page.
  • Review a Dashboard of website statistics, including recent publish dates and versions.
  • Create a blog. Blogs can boost the search relevance of accountants' sites by 30% or more, and Website Relief now delivers fully integrated blogs at no additional charge.
  • Include interactive standard or customizable forms on any page, to collect contact data and engage website visitors.
  • Mark any page as "draft" until it’s ready for publishing.

 "Ten years ago, AccountantsWorld created the first website builder solution designed exclusively for accountants, and with the brand-new Website Relief, we’re proud to continue to provide industry-leading innovation in this vital category," said Sharada Bhansali, AccountantsWorld’s co-founder and Senior Vice President. "Our mission with Website Relief remains consistent: to help accountants improve their firms’ visibility to new clients and their retention of current clients. Websites remain the most visible and critical vehicle for accounting firms of all sizes to present and differentiate themselves. Any accounting firm looking to improve their growth and retention should discover what separates Website Relief from its competition."
