Shoeboxed has become the latest member of the CloudSolutions Alliance, a CPA-focused group formed in 2010 with the goal of educating and gaining further access to firms who would be most interested in their services.

Shoeboxed is a receipt, bill and business card scanning and organizing service. It joins the existing members of the alliance—Avalara, SmartVault, Fujitsu, FreshBooks, and workflow management service XCM—in working directly with CPA firms of all sizes to sponsor education and thought leadership initiatives that help firms better understand how new technology adoption leads to improved client service and retention, and ultimately firm growth.

“As we look to make a bigger name for ourselves in the accounting market, we feel that teaming with the CloudSolutions Alliance is a huge step in the right direction,” said Shoeboxed chief executive Taylor Mingos. “We’ve watched this group’s efforts over the past year and feel that their motivation to provide cloud and paperless education to accountants is in lock step with our company goals. Today, everyone is talking about ‘zero data entry,’ mobile, and integration—three things that we bring to the table. We’re confident that by incorporating Shoeboxed into this superior mix of cloud, SaaS and paperless solutions, the alliance will continue to provide even more value to accounting firms of all sizes.”

Shoeboxed will participate in upcoming CloudSolutions Alliance educational initiatives directed at CPA firms of all sizes, including an ongoing podcast series from the THRIVEal+CPA Network, called THRIVEcasts. Educational initiatives undertaken by the CloudSolutions Alliance over the past year have included:

• A research study of top 100 accounting firms conducted by Bay Street Group focused on profit margins, competition between firms and getting up-to-date with technology, particularly how top firms are aggressively adopting cloud, SaaS and paperless offerings.

• A white paper by WithumSmith+Brown partner James Bourke,  describing how competitive, growth-oriented firms are leveraging technologies like document management and SaaS to better serve clients and improve internal operations.
