Programs for Software and Solution Developers
The Sleeter Group's programs for software and solution developers enables quality companies with relevant products and services for the small- to medium-sized business (SMB) market to showcase their solutions, improve their offerings, and build distribution channels. By leveraging the combined capabilities of The Sleeter Group's internal organization and the Sleeter Group Consultants Network, developers are able to access services and resources which address a broad range of product, development, and marketing issues. Our programs are preferred by Intuit Developer Network and Intuit Partner Platform members, as well as other developers, for several simple reasons:
- Showcase Your Products: We offer a range of programs that assist developers in exposing their solutions to the market. Whether through our "Awesome Add-on Award" program or as a Solution Partner to our thousands of accounting professionals who rely on us for recommendations of best-in-class solutions, The Sleeter Group can put your product or service in front of a multitude of potential customers.
- Improve Your Solution: Our consultants can help identify areas of improvement in your application, including integrating or working with financial software applications such as Intuit® QuickBooks® and Sage Peachtree. Let us help you make your solution one the market can't do without.
- Increase Revenue: We offer a range of opportunities to help developers get their solutions into the hands of the customer. Whether the approach is direct to the market or through the activities of our clients, the accounting professionals who serve the SMB market, The Sleeter Group can help you build distribution for your solution, gain new customers, and increase sales revenues.
- Harness the Energy of a Trusted Brand: The Sleeter Group is one of the most respected organizations in accounting solutions consulting. With The Sleeter Group as your partner, you can trust that we have your best interests in mind.
Companies with vetted solutions that The Sleeter Group deems to be "best-in-class" in their particular horizontal or vertical category are designated as Solution Partners. Software and services in this category are incorporated into the ecosystem of solutions that are made available to The Sleeter Group's clients – members of the Sleeter Group Consultants Network and other accounting professionals – for recommendation to their respective SMB clients. This program helps developers enhance their product distribution strategy by providing a channel to deliver marketing, sales, implementation, training, and support services.
We host over 50 hardware, software, and solution vendors each year in the trade show component of our annual Accounting Solutions Conference. Companies looking to meet hundreds of the top accountants and advisors who serve tens of thousands of SMB clients should strongly consider exhibiting at this top tier event. Exhibit sales run from March through October of each year.
Developers of products or services that connect with QuickBooks, Peachtree, or other financial accounting software packages may nominate their offering for an Awesome Add-on Award. These honors are chosen by The Sleeter Group and presented at The Sleeter Group's Accounting Solutions Conference. The application period for the Awesome Add-on Award program is April through June of each year, for evaluation during the summer and presentation at the Accounting Solutions Conference in November.
