What does the future of accounting look like in the coming year?


That question was the catalyst for our in-depth accounting survey and final report, “Automation: putting accounting on the right path.” 


As ShareFile grows in verticalized markets like accounting, it was important for us to discover and share what professionals really think about their industry. For accountants, this knowledge is equally crucial. Understanding the broader sentiment within the profession can help firms and departments create improved strategies for technology.
