The First Look features published on our sister site, Insightful Accountant, are a product summary based upon information submitted by the software developer. It is a cursory review of the product from the website and other sources—such as a demo or trial version—when available.
In addition, as time permits, we research the company’s background and examine issues like how long they have been offering the product, how well they support their software by reviewing user comments or blog postings whenever possible. In some cases, we also need to research the related process.
While our very own William “Murph” Murphy has written numerous First Look features for Insightful Accountant, he decided it warranted sharing this story on reasonable compensation with our Tax Practice News readers.
