This infographic shows the start of modern accounting in 1494 when Luca Pacioli first described the systems of debits, credits, journals and ledgers. Then outlines the difference between how processes were done before accounting software programs and after accounting software programs. VisiCalc and QuickBooks changed the industry when they were introduced. (We will forgive them for not including the release of “Great Plains Software” in 1993 as a pivitol moment in history.) And now we see a shift as accounting software is offered “in the cloud”. The infographic also looks at how the profession of accounting has adapted to these technology changes.
A fun visual look for any finance department.
