Intacct Corporation, the leading provider of online professional accounting solutions, today announced the official kick off of its 2002 seminar series titled “Building A Profitable E-Practice,” beginning August 22 in Anaheim, California.

The seminar series will provide accounting and financial management professionals with an introduction to web-based accounting practices, also known as E-Practices, and will offer insight on marketing, managing, and profiting through an E-Practice model. Hosted by some of the industry’s leading experts in web-based accounting including Intacct CEO David C. Thomas, Intacct Vice President Craig Slayter, and Intacct Director Kevin Hopkins, the half-day seminars will present a comprehensive agenda that explores such real-world topics as:

· The Internet & the Future of Accounting
· Your Clients Want to Work Online
· The Cost Advantages of Online Accounting
· Marketing Online Accounting to Clients
· Managing Your Practice Online
· Making Your E-Practice Profitable

“For many accounting professionals, doing the books on the web is still an unknown,” explained Intacct CEO David C. Thomas. “However, with the majority of their own clients turning to the Internet to manage more and more business processes, it is critical that these professionals become acquainted with the Internet and all of the profit potential it has to offer.”
