Notes from the President

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

While thinking about a subject for this month’s message, a friend stepped into my office and said I should write an article about AI. I’m sure he meant Artificial Intelligence, but since it seems everyone is writing about that, and I’m certainly no expert on it, I thought a better topic might be Accounting Information (AI).
There are several ways to capture and store financial data. It can be kept on paper, in a spreadsheet, in a database, or in any number of accounting systems. In my opinion, data has little value until it is turned into useful information. Information can help you make informed decisions, while data is just a bunch of numbers.
At Red Wing Software, our goal is to give you the tools to get good information out of your data by first asking: “What do our customers need to make good management decisions?” We then attempt to find the best way to get data into the software so you have the tools to get the good information you need for useful reports. To help get this accomplished, we have a knowledgeable team of support people to answer your questions about using your software.
With all this Accounting Information (AI), we continuously live our vision: Creating the Best Management Software Experience.
