Winners to be announced at the SYNERGY Users’ Conference 2019

Thomson Reuters is now accepting nominations for the Luca Pacioli Accounting Awards, to be presented at the annual SYNERGY users’ conference to be held in Denver, Colo., Nov. 6-9, 2019.

The Luca Pacioli Accounting Awards, formerly known as the Customer Superstar Awards, are named in honor of Luca Pacioli – known as the “father of accounting” – and his contributions to the profession. Pacioli was a monk, magician, and lover of numbers. He was also a domain expert who recognized the opportunity to harness new technologies.

Thanks to the newly invented printing press, Pacioli’s book, Summa de arithmetica, was mass produced in 1494, and his ideas spread widely. The book set the precedent for the modern accounting system used today, introducing the concepts of ledgers, journals, and bookkeeping. Winners of the Luca Pacioli Accounting Awards embody Pacioli’s spirit of invention and innovation and demonstrate a mastery of accounting and technology.

Thomson Reuters is accepting nominations in the following categories through Aug. 30:

  • Firm of the Year: will recognize the firm that embraces Pacioli’s innovative spirit in transforming or improving their business.
  • Trailblazing Woman: will recognize up-and-coming female partners/female-owned firms.
  • Rookie of the Year: will honor the brand-new (within the last year) Thomson Reuters firm that had the most successful implementation of products and is also being represented at the SYNERGY conference for the first time.

Thomson Reuters will also recognize a member of the Thomson Reuters online customer Community for their diligent and generous help towards their peer tax practitioners via the Community platform. The Community Peer-Support recognition will be nominated by the Thomson Reuters selection committee, rather than via nomination.
