Certified Quickbooks® ProAdvisor

QuickBooks® is a powerful accounting software program designed for today's growing small business. The program can deliver more than just numbers. The software can provide meaningful management reports that can help you make critical business decisions. For example, the program can provide the amount of sales made over a certain time period, but with a little additional work you can track where the sales are coming from in terms of referral sources.

When we realized that QuickBooks® was an excellent tool for a small business we decided to become experts in the program. In 1997 we began teaching the program at Harper College where it is offered as a 12 hour course. By teaching and supporting clients with this software we have gained valuable experience that can be applied to your specific situation. We can support QuickBooks® both:

On-Site Consulting

A typical session lasts between 2 and 3 hours. If more time is required, we recommend additional meetings since there is a significant amount of information to absorb. Prior to the session, it is valuable to put together a list of goals to be accomplished in the meeting.
Over the past few years we have assisted over a hundred busineses with their QuickBooks® software.

We found that the most common areas of assistance include:

  Payroll set-up & maintenance Troubleshooting transactions
  Job and project costing Item set-up & design
  Set-up of data file/conversion Accounting adjustments
  Invoicing & billing Data entry review

Off-Site Consulting

Questions on how to record a transactions in QuickBooks® inevitably come-up. Our goal is to deliver timely solutions to these questions. In most cases a telephone call and a copy of your date file, we can walk you through the solution. If the question is generic it may be resolved without access to your data file. QuickBooks® back-up data files can be easily emailed to us so that we can be looking at the same thing you are.

Finally, using internet technology, your data file can be maintained by a third party which allows you to access the data at any time. It would also allow anyone you authorize to access the data to review data and make changes.

Occasionally, you may need to post a number of adjustments to your file or have certain transactions reviewed. By emailing the file to me I can make the necessary changes and send the file back to you. It's amazing how easy it is to support clients in Florida and California using this technique.

As technology progresses the off-site support options become even more numerous. Using any of these methods will allow your business to run smoothly as accounting issues get resolved.
