CPA services now being auctioned on-line

As if there weren't enough financial pressures on today's CPA firms, new services are popping up on the web from small local brokers to giants such as monster.com, the big
online job search site, and even Microsoft itself, to bring
potential clients and CPA service providers together
through an auction environment. Clients who need consulting
help on a project for a couple of days -- or those who are
looking for an annual audit -- can now go online, set up
the parameters of their assignment, and set their own price
the way the travel industry is doing through riceline.com.
CPA's across the country can bid for the job, and in many
cases do the work remotely. Like it or not, the technology
is here to facilitate this auction environment. More and
more clients are beginning to use this kind of service, and
it requires an even greater commitment on your part to
keeping the clients you have! Be sure to check out these
sites to see what new competitors you are facing - or to find a business opportunity yourself!
