With the curtain falling on the Spring software conference season, several dominant trends have emerged from show floors around the country. Chief among them is a new wave of artificial intelligence tools embedded in practice management, general ledger and spend management software, which promises practitioners increased efficiencies – but at what cost?

Joining AccountingWEB technology editor Tom Herbert on the podcast are Beever and Struthers’ tech strategy lead John Toon and 2020 Innovation practice consultant and Tech Talk chair Billie Mcloughlin. The panel reviewed offerings from the likes of Pixie, Karbon and Jenesys, and discussed what could be next in the world of AI accounting.

This year also saw larger firms with more complex clients moving to the cloud in search of efficiencies and collaboration opportunities while keeping their compliance software desktop-based in what has been dubbed a ‘hybrid by design’ approach. 

Another trend which first emerged last year and has gathered pace is accountants moving away from a patchwork of best-of-breed tools in search of more integrated solutions.
