Leading my local environmental-awareness group comes with its own responsibilities and workload that can drag down the most experienced professionals. I care a lot about this environment we take advantage of each and every day, so I try to do my best by keeping as many documents as possible on the computer and free from print. Quicken 2013 allows me to take things a step further and follow my spreadsheets, coupons, and other financial tasks across the Internet from the office to my home. There’s no need for a messy paper trail, no need for an expensive secretary, and no need to make the job any harder than it already is. The cloud has mad e big splash in the modern world. This splash has even affected small groups in local areas, such as my own, that focus on cleaning up the landscape, studying the inhabitants, and cleaning up Mother Earth along the way. Through this new and powerful service, software like Quicken 2013 can turn a solitary stack of paperwork into a joint effort amongst the team through online meetings and documents that entire organization can edit from the comfort of their own home. It’s already hard enough to organize meetings once a month, Quicken and the cloud makes it even easier to manage between these dates. I use Quicken for more than just business with the group. Taxes are a big hurdle each year and managing a non-profit organization brings more to the table than I can handle alone. It’s important to have a well-organized financial record throughout the year in one location that I know is secure. Receipts, pay-stubs, any investments or financial planning that I’ve endured is all maintained within a singular program. I always make a point to grab the latest release each year and Quicken 2013 looks like it’s going to raise the bar again.
