Looking back at 2014, Softrak had some great “wins” this year.
Starting at the beginning of the year, Adagio Accounting was awarded small business software of the year in CPA Practice Advisor’s annual Reader Poll. We were named alongside Quickbooks and MYOB as the best “installed” accounting application in the small business category. Sage was shut out of all categories. CPA Practice Advisor had approximately 4000 of its subscribers vote in its annual poll.
Another success was our 15th annual Adagio Opportunity Conference. It was held in Las Vegas at the spectacular J.W. Marriott Las Vegas Resort. We had record attendance – up almost 25% over previous year - and all of our clients and partners enjoyed the experience.
We launched our new Adagio branding and Softrak.com website last Spring. Although the new website was not without its bumps along the way, we are extremely pleased with it. The site is better designed to engage prospects and visitors that are unfamiliar with Adagio. Over 20 new “Show me how…” videos were added, increasing the availability of self-directed learning by over 50%. Half day training programs were offered in all the major metropolitan centers in Canada.
This fall we launched our new Adagio Consultants Academy. This is a program to train new dealers and help reduce the learning curve.
The end of the year saw the beginning of the 9.2A versions of Adagio being released, starting with Adagio Ledger. This upgrade signals a complete refresh of the Adagio technology platform, including a move to a current compiler and update to Crystal Reports 2013 for all the Adagio management reporting. The rest of the Financial Suite will ship early in 2015.
Looking back at 2014, we signed up a large number of new clients, a couple of capable new dealers, and hired a few talented new employees. All in all, 2014 was a great year for Softrak. We wish all our customers, partners and supporters a prosperous 2015.
