AccountantsWorld co-founders Dr. Chandra Bhansali and Sharada Bhansali, along with company president Jeff Gramlich, were named to the Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting by Accounting Today magazine for 2015.
AccountantsWorld has been a pioneer in cloud-based software solutions for accountants for over 15 years and is the only small company in the industry to have placed three people on the list.
“This truly is an outstanding honor to make this list once again. As a company, we are happy to see that our peers recognize our success and achievements. Having dedicated ourselves to helping accountants grow their practice and become more profitable through cutting edge software solutions, this achievement is very fulfilling,” said Dr. Chandra Bhansali, CEO.
This is the first time that all three have been included on the Top 100 list.
AccountantsWorld opened the first online portal for accountants in 1999, and since then has repeatedly identified ways to use new technology to serve the needs of professional accountants. From the earliest days of the Internet, Dr. Bhansali and his co-founder and wife Sharada understood that the Web would change the nature of accounting work, and could be used to foster stronger collaboration with clients and put unprecedented computing power in the hands of accounting firms of all sizes. The result of that vision has been the development of the Power Practice suite of cloud-based solutions, designed exclusively to help accountants grow their practices and better serve their clients.
“What makes this list so special is that we ask candidates to name who they think are the most influential people in the field. The people who made the list were not chosen by the magazine, they were chosen by their peers. This makes the acknowledgement all that more important,” said Dan Hood, editor-in-chief of Accounting Today.
Congratulations to Chandra, Sharada, and Jeff!
