On the E.D.G.E with Apps 


    TechThe E.D.G.E Conference will have a mobile app to make the experience even more productive for attendees.

    According to the latest 
    AICPA Top Technology Initiatives Survey Results, mobile is on everyone’s mind. At the AICPA, we are always thinking of new ways to use current technologies to keep you informed. Thus, the AICPA Conference App was born. Our first conference app was released in June at the Practitioner’s/Tech+ conference and since then, several conferences have had custom apps associated with the event. Attendees loved the convenience and enhanced functionalities they got from the app. The ability to access all the information they need in one place — on their mobile phone — allowed them to skip using the paper catalog completely. Attendees said they were more organized and saved time.

    So it’s no surprise the E.D.G.E. conference in August will have its very own app to let attendees go beyond the paper brochures and agendas and make the most of their time at this high-energy event.
