We all know that communication is difficult when you don’t understand the language. When it comes to technology and accounting, business owners face a similar problem. There is a gap between the services provided by their IT company and the services provided by their CPA firm.
So how can we help in this regard? With a deep knowledge of software, such as all QuickBooks and Sage products, various database systems, Microsoft Office, and a host of other industry-specific software packages , we can assist with challenges such as:
Accounting System Implementation and Design Bonus Calculation
We successfully migrated a client from a manual accounting system with complex bonus calculations to a computerized accounting system with automated calculations, while training the client to maintain their own system, resulting in significant monthly expense reductions.
Accounting System Conversion
We smoothly converted a client from one accounting system to another, placing the client in a more flexible system with improved reporting capabilities, and efficiently imported over 40,000 historical transactions.
Accounting System Integration
We collaborated with a client’s new manufacturing software provider to implement a new accounting system that seamlessly integrated with the client’s existing payroll system and new manufacturing software.
Accounting System Emergency Management
We minimized a client’s accounting system downtime during an outage by putting a manual system in place while we set up and installed a new system. We were able to export data from the corrupt system to a new platform while concurrently training their staff.
We helped a new client save thousands of dollars by taking over monthly accounting duties from their former CPA firm, and put a system in place that allowed the owner to easily complete financial tasks in-house, with our ongoing remote support.
Data Analysis for Business Acquisition
We developed an intuitive forecasting spreadsheet that allowed a client to analyze operational variables and generate projected financial statements that provided key insights into a proposed business acquisition.
Data Integration During Company Sale
We helped a client efficiently move all pertinent data to the buyer’s system while maintaining the integrity of the data when the company was purchased.
