This November, Intuit will host 400 accounting professionals from across the country at Intuit THRIVE, Canada’s #1 accounting technology event. Today’s accountants and bookkeepers know technology is transforming their industry – from the way they operate their practice to the way they collaborate with clients.  At Intuit THRIVE, we invite Canadian accounting professionals, industry thought leaders and app developers to celebrate this transformative time together, under one roof.

Canada Small Business Runs on Apps

Last year, we conducted a study to get a sense of how and why Canadian small business owners were using mobile apps to run their business. We learned that 55% of small businesses use mobile apps to run their business. But what’s become increasingly clear is that small business owners don’t just use apps, they rely on them.

Why Do Small Business Owners Use Apps?

  • 60% of respondents indicated they use apps to save time by automating manual tasks.
  • 69% said they use apps to keep their finances more organized.

How Are Small Business Owners Using Apps?

  • 52% of respondents indicated they use apps to manage day-to-day accounting functions.
  • 76% of respondents said they use invoices to generate invoices and/or receive payments.

Bottom line, the Canadian small business landscape is ripe with opportunities. We know that our Canadian ProAdvisors – QuickBooks experts – are helping their clients leverage mobile apps to help them save time, energy and money and get them back to focusing on what matters most, growing their business and spending time with friends and family.

Why Should Developers Come to THRIVE?

As I mentioned above, we have 400 tech-savvy Canadian accounting professionals that are eager to learn what’s coming next in their industry. This is a fantastic opportunity to get in front of them, have 1-on-1 conversations and share the exciting updates your teams are working on.
