We are proud to announce that we were named the category winner for IT services for the 2018 Marcum Tech Top 40. For the past eleven years, the Connecticut Technology Council and Marcum have recognized the fastest growing technology companies in Connecticut.

Outgrowing Accounting Software

It was an exciting night for the entire Leap the Pond team! Mark Maybury, Stanley Black & Decker's CTO spoke eloquently in his keynote about five secrets of innovation that really hit home and tie into our philosophy of how organizations can set themselves up for success. 

  1. Observe Carefully
  2. Listen Deeply
  3. Think Outside the Box
  4. Experiment with Purpose
  5. Collaborate

Making the decision to implement a robust accounting software, like Sage Intacct, is no easy feat. You need to observe your team and processes carefully. For example, have you been struggling to get a pulse on real-time reporting of your finances? Or is it taking too long to close your month-end? Listen to your colleagues and coworkers. Take the time and think about what changes you want to make and realistically what results you want to see. Don't take shortcuts when it is time to invest in your business on important items like accounting software. Having the right systems in place from the start will give you critical information and insight into your business. You should also plan for scalability so your system can grow with you, and establish an infrastructure that provides full, real-time visibility across your organization. By establishing processes and infrastructure as early as possible, not only will you be able to help assess how the business is doing day-by-day, but also help chart a course for future growth.

“We are honored be amongst 40 great Connecticut companies and to be named category winner for IT Services.
