  • ‘Tis the season to be jolly…

    Danny Do Couto and Katie Riley putting up the holiday treeThe holiday season is upon us and everyone here at the Method Team is in a festive mood.  Heck, Katie and I even managed to put up our holiday tree after returning from our trip to the Sleeter Conference.  This included us playing some good old Christmas tunes at 8:00am prior to anyone coming into the office (except poor Paul who was trying his best to focus on his work).

    2008 has been a very exciting year for our team.  We opened up our beta, launched the Method API, filed for a patent for our Method Integration Engine and made Method publically available in September.  All of this was followed by a hectic series of conferences (QuickBooks Enterprise Conference, Sleeter Conference and The Financial Technology Show).

    So what can you expect from us in 2009?  We’ll keep you posted, but I promise there are only more exciting things planned in the pipeline.

    Just a reminder that our offices will be closed on the following days:

    December 25 (Christmas Day)
    December 26 (Boxing Day here in Canada)
    January 1 (New Years Day)

    On behalf of the Method Team, have a wonderful holiday season and a very happy and prosperous 2009!

  • Our day trip to ‘The Financial Technology Show’

    You’d think that after doing 2 major conferences (QuickBooks Enterprise Conference and The Sleeter Group Conference) and releasing our product from beta we would want to take a break.  Nope, we had to do one more conference but this one was close to home.  In fact, it was exactly 1km (.62 miles) away in downtown T.Dot (short form for Toronto).

    The Financial Technology Show is Canada’s largest event for accountants and was held at Toronto’s Metro Toronto Convention Center (right next to the CN Tower).  Each year this show brings in approximately 1500 senior level accounting professionals.  It provides an opportunity for accountants to shop around and compare different accounting and software products, all under one roof.  Clearly, this was something we wanted to be part of. 

    We met plenty of QuickBooks users and some people that weren’t using QuickBooks.  Surprisingly those who weren’t using QuickBooks didn’t walk away from the booth right away and actually considered moving over to QB just to get the added flexibility of Method.  Can you blame them? 

    Because the show was located so close to home, Val and Kris (which many of you may have spoken to on the phone) got a chance to make their first public appearance at a conference.  They can now attest to the fact that speaking to other users in person at a show is a great feeling and experience. 

    So what’s next on our road map?  Stay tuned and enjoy some of the pics from us here in the T.Dot!
