MORE HONORABLE MENTIONS
This year we had numerous considerations for top products, including many that we thought accounting professionals should be aware of and keep an eye on. Some of these products may even evolve to top out a category, but for now we feel they are noteworthy as they represent change, evolution and relevance to the profession.
First up, Bloomberg BNA gets an Honorable Mention for significantly expanding the choices for accounting research with its new Financial Accounting Resource Center.
The e-book has a growing reputation as a popular and useful resource, and there are two new ones on the market worth spotlighting: One is from Ernst & Young, with its Tax Guide e-book; the other is the set of Tax & Accounting e-books on ProView from ThomsonReuters. These boast the cloud and mobile features you would expect, plus navigation tools developed specifically for RIA's Internal Revenue Code and Federal Tax Regulations e-books.
Another useful resource, given the increased interest in international tax, is CCH's online Global Tax Weekly -- A Closer Look, which provides up-to-date analysis of critical international tax developments.
Finally, note that Sage North America now has a true Software-as-a-Service offering in Sage One. For firms with clients that aren't quite ready for Peachtree, trust the Sage brand and are ready for the cloud, this one is becoming more of a consideration.
