CPA2Biz, the technology subsidiary of the American Institute of CPAs, today announced that AICPA Navigator—a state-of-the-art learning management system for the accounting profession—was named a finalist for CPA Practice Advisor’s 2013 Tax & Accounting Technology Innovation Awards.
Created by CPAs for CPAs, AICPA Navigator is the perfect tool to ease compliance monitoring and expand a firm’s skills and knowledge base.It automates tracking of compliance and competency requirements to help individuals and firm administrators spot gaps in training and map career development paths.
“The Innovation Awards are designed to highlight technologies that significantly benefit accounting firms or help them streamline engagements,” said Isaac M. O’Bannon, editor of CPA Practice Advisor. “AICPA Navigator gets directly to the heart of professional development, providing a streamlined, cloud-based educational management system that helps firms build their staff expertise. The system is exceptionally deserving of recognition in this year’s awards.”
The winners were selected from a large pool of nominees based on balloting from more than 40 of the profession's thought leaders. This is the second consecutive year that CPA2Biz has been honored in the competition—CPA.com Email Services won an award in 2012.
With AICPA Navigator, subscribers gain access to an extensive catalog of high-quality, authoritative AICPA courses that firms can easily incorporate into their own in-house training programs.

Administrators can set up alerts, assign state-specific requirement courses and suggest appropriate programs to build skills for staff members and groom promising employees for leadership posts.
“I’ve had the opportunity to speak to several chief learning officers at top firms this year, and there is great demand for innovative professional education and development platforms,” said Erik Asgeirsson, president and CEO of CPA2Biz. “AICPA Navigator fills this need, and we’re glad to receive this endorsement of its capabilities.”
