The chata.ai team just returned from San Jose and we’ve been buzzing about our experience at the QuickBooks Connect conference – so we thought we would share with everyone what we learned in three days in sunny California:


Accountants and bookkeepers are Innovators.

Wow, what a crew. Everyone we met was excited about the accounting software evolution and were keen to understand how they could incorporate AI into their businesses. We had great discussions and received an enormous amount of support and enrollment in our Innovators release.

Canadian quality.

This group really values Canadian companies. We set high standards for ourselves and are working extremely hard to deliver an exceptional solution. It’s great to see our Canadian roots carry a high level of interest and respect with our American colleagues. And, our Canadian colleagues… let’s just say we can’t wait for QuickBooks Connect Toronto! We have been received with open arms in true Canadian fashion.

Good vibes.

The crew at Intuit went above and beyond to make sure there was something for everyone and that you could play as hard as you worked at the conference. The special details such as the sound lounge and thoughtful breakout sessions created a great community vibe that was warm and welcoming to vendors and attendees alike.

Community + Collaboration.

As the new kids (almost!) in the QuickBooks App Store we were so humbled by the support we received not only from our friends at Intuit and ProAdvisors, but our fellow apps and small business attendees. The spirit of community and collaboration was strong in San Jose, there was never a dull moment as our schedule overflowed with requests to connect with our peers and advisors. It’s a great feeling to know our product is backed by a village of supporters right off the start line.

Looking forward to seeing all of our QuickBooks friends in Toronto in December. Feel free to connect with us before then.
