We're marching out of this month with a discussion on what Jeff Bezos' investment in Pilot (now valued at a cool $1.2 billion) means for you. We've got some random facts, figures, and philosophies on why the IRS has such a hard time collecting money, and also check out India's new requirement for audit trails on all GLs. We'll look at why Slack, and Zoom want to keep us engaged, even when the COVID dust settles, although Slack is backing off of direct connections across orgs, and we'll also talk about how firms prefer to communicate with clients and prospects. In app news, Xero acquires e-invoicing company Tickstar, and we've got news on raises for BQE, and ServiceTitan, and BaCo Tech's new patent. All this and maybe a bit more! Enjoy!
