In our series of #CEDIAShares blogs, we’re talking with exhibitors about the hottest technologies and trends they’re looking to see at CEDIA Expo 2023.

Q&A with Josh Willits, COO,

Why exhibit at CEDIA Expo 2023?

For us, CEDIA is all about seeing dealers in person. That’s why we exhibit, and it’s what we’re most excited about. As far as product, this year has been our most productive as a company, churning out big features at record pace. We love showing dealers what we’ve built, and what we’re working on, to make their lives easier.

 What is the most exciting trend you expect to see at the show?

In the software world, we’re focused on integrations and working with other software companies to give dealers options across the various aspects of their business workflow.

As it relates to the show itself, last year felt like the first “return to normal” show; but Denver feels like home. We launched Portal in Denver. It’s going to be a great show.  

What will you focus on at the show?

This year we’re showing tons of new features we’ve built over the last 12 months. We integrated QuickBooks Payment Processing into our award-winning Payment module.

When we launched our current QuickBooks Online integration years ago, it was the simplest, easiest-to-use QuickBooks integration in the industry. But we saw where it could be improved even more, and we’re releasing an all-new integration for pushing Proposals into QuickBooks.

Our biggest feature this year was our most requested from dealers: Auto-Attaching Accessories and Labor to items allows dealers to create packages that can be added to a proposal with the click of a button. This feature is anchored on an all-new intelligent item suggestion functionality that looks at your account activity and industry popularity to suggest related items.

Building proposals in Portal is faster and easier than ever before.
