CooperMann 2012 in review

2012 Was an interesting year, to say the least.  Not that it wasn’t a good year, but it certainly brought its share of challenges as well as opportunities.  At, we attempted to reflect upon these challenges and opportunities, discussing how they impact our views on accounting and technology and business in general.

While the economy continued to struggle and churn, business owners found that reducing operating costs and creating sustainability in the business were initiatives they could no longer afford to minimally address. As advancements in technology and the growing popularity of cloud computing models resulted in a number of solutions to help businesses meet those cost and continuity issues, they also introduced new and different challenges for accounting and finance professionals seeking to reinforce their relevance and value to the business.  They say that the only constant is change, so we should expect no fewer challenges (or opportunities!) in the new year.
