Donny Shimamoto to Educate on App Integration and Streamlining Expense Reports at SleeterCon
November 16, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsNovember 16, 2015 - Donny Shimamoto will be present two courses at the 12th annual Sleeter Accounting Technology Conference. His first session: App Integration for Accountants is designed for non-techies, and will teach participants to analyze their ecosystem of applications and systems to figure out the architecture and schematics for the digital plumbing. That determines which apps should be connected to others and what information needs to be shared between them. Attendees will learn about the different components and business solutions available to improve financial and other back office operational functions. They will leave with an understanding of how to develop their intraprise architecture and how to do trade-off analysis between broad solutions and niche solutions to optimize technology investments.
Donny's second session, Streamlining Expense Reports for your Clients, is on Wednesday, November 18th at 9:50am. Expense reports and employee expense policy compliance are a headache for business owners and accountants alike. Attend this session to learn about the various expense report app options and their differing approaches to expense report management for business owners and employees. Also, learn how integration with various accounting solutions can eliminate or streamline data entry and reimbursement processing.
Doug Sleeter, founder of The Sleeter Group, explained why Donny is a staple at the conference: "Donny's presentations always resonate with the crowd. He presents inspiring new ways of thinking about technology, business process, and efficiency in business." He continued, "Donny is a deep thinker but he can explain complex systems in simple ways."
