How Moving to the Cloud Has Changed My Business

Drake Software and Rightworks sponsored “How Moving to the Cloud Has Changed My Business,” a panel discussion about using cloud-based products in tax and accounting firms. As a technology often touted for providing improved efficiency, flexibility, and scalability, many tax and accounting professionals have begun considering moving part of their practice to the cloud—especially in the wake of pandemic lockdowns.

In this webinar, Moderator Gene Marks asks panelists Jerome Clarke, Pat Dillon, and Fred Mosbey about their experience with cloud technology, including why they decided to try it, how it helps their practice, and what advice they might have for anyone considering it for their own tax business.
