We have used QuickBooks for our small business accounting ever since it was introduced. The intuitive nature of QuickBooks makes billing and record keeping easy, and teaches the user so much about correct record keeping. Our accountant definitely appreciates that our using QuickBooks makes our year end tax review faster and more accurate. The additional services, such as being able to download bank information or credit card statements directly into the program, and online payment and credit card processing are such time savers; we don't need a dedicated staff person for accounting, and it provides us with a more accurate day to day cash flow position.
Being able to track past due customer invoices, quickly locate vendor payments, create reports for our sales people -- truly invaluable tools that increase our productivity and profitability. We wish more of the offered services were more affordable; we would certainly use them if their cost per transaction were lower.
Our only negatives about QuickBooks are the occasional no-service downtime issues for the merchant service, which we have experienced more of in the last six months than anytime before, and that have lasted for days, not minutes. The loss of revenue when this occurs is of concern, and the non-US based customer service is terrible to work with. Long, long wait times and it is fairly difficult to get adequate and satisfactory responses to customer service issues. While the operator may know English words, they clearly don't understand it, and can't cope when an issue is outside of their given response script.
If you remember the award-winning movie, Jerry McGuire, featuring Tom Cruise and Renée Zellweger, you'll recall one of the signature lines, "you had me at 'hello.'" In this case, the same thing could be said about Robert Scoble and Shel Israel's new joint effort, "Age of Context" for three simple reasons:
1) I am a huge location-based marketing fan and am a bigger believer in the future of "wearable" computing
2) I am personal friends with both Robert and Shel and have talked about many of the concepts discussed in the book with them.
3) I sit on the advisory board of one of the companies featured in the book, VinTank. In my mind, what CEO, Paul Mabray, and CTO, James Jory, are doing for the wine and food industry is game-changing... and it starts with understanding the importance of context.
In addition to the three reasons I list above, there are at least a dozen other reasons I enjoyed Age of Context and appreciated the connecting of the dots Robert and Shel did in the book. Given that I work at an agency that specializes in analytics and places a premium on the digesting, analyzing and providing insights on large sets of data, I couldn't help but appreciate one of the opening quotes in the book that says, "just about everything we enjoy and need online comes to us from data. [Data] is the oxygen of the Age of Context." This phrase in my mind perfectly frames the essence of the book.
Diving into the meet of the book, Shel and Robert discuss five principal forces:
- Social Media
- Big Data
- Location-based Services
Robert and Shel use these forces to provide examples of companies that are either creating the hardware (Google Glass) and software (Findery) OR are putting the five forces into practices (New England Patriots). To that end, the authors also do a good job at providing a brief history of how and why we've arrived at this "age of context." In particular, I enjoyed (and agreed with) Robert and Shel's explanation of why the battle for ownership of mobile maps is so critical for the future of both Google, Apple and to some degree, Facebook.
Last but not least, I was fascinated to hear about the possibilities of sensor-based technology and wearable computing that companies like Pairasight, are making a reality. One of the examples the authors provided was the ability for a "Nashville expert [to] help a country doctor save a life. The 3D capability [of the technology] lets the consulting physician see far more than a simple X-ray could show: The expert can virtually see through the eyes of the local doctor wearing Pairasight during an operation." Not only is this stuff cool but it will help save lives!
If there is one piece of constructive feedback I would give to Robert and Shel, it is that they over-index a little on their use of Google Glass as a focal point in the book. It's understandable given the impact and possibilities this seminal technology provides... but still, it is only one device.
In summary, this was a quick and easy read and left me feeling smarter about a space that I already feel pretty smart about. While I was fortunate enough to receive a complimentary review copy (digital), I will be purchasing a copy of the book to keep in our work library. I highly recommend that you do so too.
Truly a beautiful and wonderful book for all ages, especially for young girls.
>Flora is a 10 year cynic who isn't quite normal--at least not by the standards of her mother. But Flora could care less. She reads comic books about superheroes and that makes her one happy cynic. Flora's story takes flight when 'holy unanticipated circumstances!' occur in her front yard, forever changing her life. It all involves a squirrel and a vacuum. Flora puts the vast knowledge learned from reading comics to good use.
This book includes: heroes (super and not), zany characters, and random bits of helpful information.
There is so much that I love about Flora and Ulysses. I love the cover, humor, the tone, illustrations, comic book style, whimsical characters, story, poetry, and interesting words (a few of which I had to look up).
Flora and Ulysses is a very cute story that I didn't want to end. I'd like to see more.
This has many different questions that allow the user to adequately prepare for the computer adaptive test for the NCLEX RN. The book comes with a CD Rom that includes a mock test of the actual state board exam...words and letters are large enough to read and language is able to understand. It also has individual sections for each category covered on the NCLEX wito eth relevant questions help expand your understanding and learning process
History has made President Coolidge the forgotten man. Wedged between Progressives T. Roosevelt and Wilson on one side and FDR on the other, Coolidge does not fit the model of the ever active President. Coolidge was however, exactly what the country needed to shrink the size of government after WWI. By cutting taxes and restraining spending his policies brought prosperity back to the country. He understood fully the rule of law, the meaning of the constitution, and the means of governing in a two party system. I see now why President Reagan admired him.
The current holder of the office would do well to study the ways of govenment, Coolidge style.
