“Botkeeper exceeded our hopes and quickly became a partner I sought to join forces with,” says Chicago-based Jody Padar, the CEO and principal of New Vision CPA Group. “Botkeeper shares the same values we have for excellent service, expertise, curating a technology-driven environment which I am excited to be a part of, and which our customers, and the accounting industry as a whole, will significantly benefit from.”

As many know, Padar has been working with “the Bots” over the last 18 months, helping to evolve their technology with ongoing customer feedback. Botkeeper is developing an artificial intelligence software platform that integrates with a client's bank accounts, credit cards, HR system, and POS system, and makes appropriate entries and adjustments to their QuickBooks or Xero accounts.

“I’m so excited to have Jody join the team,” says Enrico Palmerino, CEO of Boston-based Botkeeper. “As an early cloud adopter and practice management innovator, this role will be a commitment to the accounting industry in a way most software vendors can only dream of.”  Palmerino also noted that it’s invigorating to have the industry as excited about this valuable addition as we are.
