Exact, provider of cloud-based business software for small and medium-sized businesses, is partnering with QB Express, a network of accounting firms with national affiliates that provide QuickBooks training, to launch QB Express’ new educational module for manufacturers.

Using Exact’s manufacturing industry expertise and online business software, QB Express developed its new Profit Improvement Process for Manufacturers educational module, which has a monthly, step-by-step process and procedures enabling accountants to provide consulting services and solutions to their manufacturing customers. The PIP for Manufacturers, exclusively using Exact Online for Manufacturing software, is now available exclusively to QB Express’ community of accounting firms.

“At QB Express, we choose only the best-in-class technology providers as partners,” stated QB Express CEO Kim Fedore. “When searching for a partner to help us create our new manufacturing module, Exact quickly became the obvious choice for several reasons. The quality of Exact’s software and its manufacturing industry expertise is unmatched. Only Exact understands the business management needs of both small manufacturers and accountants, and how to give the latter group the tools they need to effectively service their client and differentiate their offerings. With our new manufacturing module, accountants now have a one-stop-shop for all the technology and guidance they need to become a true business advisor to their own clients.”

“As core accounting functions are increasingly commoditized, accounting firms are being forced to innovate and diversify their service offerings in order to retain their customers and capture news ones,” stated Kae Kronthaler-Williams, general manager of Exact U.S. Cloud Solutions. “Making the leap to providing business consulting services is easier said than done for most accounting firms. We’re thrilled to partner with QB Express to give accountants nationwide the practical tools and guidance they need to succeed today and in the years to come.”
