Wave Accounting Launches New Tools to Help Small Businesses Connect with Professionals

by Lloyed Lobo | Startups

Canadian company Wave Accounting, which provides free accounting software for small businesses, just released new tools to connect its 300,000 customers with professional accountants and bookkeepers. These tools are the latest addition to its virtual community, Wave Pro Network.

The newly revamped Wave Pro Network includes a directory of professionals by location and specific area of expertise, including accounting, bookkeeping, training, consulting and tax preparation, with detailed profile pages and a community space where customers can post questions and receive answers from professionals as well as other community members.

Professionals can contribute answers to boost their presence in the community and the strongest contributions will be sent to Wave’s customers via email and social media.

"Our customers have told us they want to work with professionals that are already familiar with Wave, and are able to provide training, general bookkeeping assistance, tax preparation and accounting advice,” said says Scott Zandbergen, Vice President of New Products and Professional Network Development at Wave Accounting. “By making it easy for our customers to find a "Wave friendly" accountant or bookkeeper, we're saving them the trouble of having to waste timing searching for someone who is able to provide assistance.”

The Revamp of the Wave Pro Network is just one piece in a series of new features that Wave Accounting plans to roll out. The startup has raised more than $19 million in funding in a year and a half, during which time it has signed up nearly 300,000 small business customers around the world. Wave Accounting currently tracks more than $30 billion in small business income and spending.
