How To Stop Intuit From Hiring Your Staff

Nipping at the heels of Christmas, we've got a proverbial sleigh full of news, from partnerships, raises, and updates, to discussions about SMB payments, the speed of ACH, and a review! We'll also break down the story of the attack on Kronos that is causing payment delays for its staff, and take a look at Intuit's (maybe not so new) approach to poaching employees straight out of their current firms. We've got a plethora of app updates, as well as a look at what FloQast intends to do with its new studio. Sing a Yuletide carol, hang a stocking, then grab a Christmas cookie or five, and have a listen!
