K2's Small Business Accounting Shootout (4 Hours)
The market for accounting solutions designed for small businesses has never been better!

Additionally, various third-party add-ins will be covered to help you make informed decisions about issues such as automated data entry, sales tax processing, reporting, and business intelligence.
