The word bookkeeping can send even the most experienced business owner into a cold sweat. Often the reason bookkeeping feels scary is because business owners don’t have the necessary tools to do it well. If you’re tracking your finances by hand, or if your bookkeeping software is complicated and inefficient it’s time to upgrade. We recommend Quickbooks to our clients, and are a few reasons why.
It’s a great reporting tool
When you need to know the financial status of your company, you shouldn’t have to wait for someone on your team to go line by line through your books to find the answers. Quickbooks has a array of different reporting tools that allow easy access to the information you need most. This way, you can continue thinking big and planning for the future and feel confident that your bookkeeping is taken care of.
There are dozens of companies that provide perfectly tailored accounting software for large corporations, and some giant companies may invest the money to build their own. However, if you’re the owner of a small business we urge you to stay out of the bookkeeping weeds. Quickbooks is proven to be an excellent product for small businesses because of its user friendly interface, its dependability, and its ability to communicate with over 100 different business applications.
We do the set up
Even with Quickbooks’ user friendly platform some of our clients look wide-eyed and are not sure what to do next. So, we began offering an extra service to them by setting up their Quickbooks account for them. That means, once we’ve taken care of our end of the deal, all they have to do is plug in the numbers! It’s a simple as that. We get the data we need, our clients save the time they would have spent going cross-eyed at the computer, and all together we move closer to getting their business’ finances under control.
I want to be clear that we are not sponsored by Quickbooks, nor are we getting paid to promote their products. We have just seen firsthand how they have had a profound benefit for our clients. Taking away the guesswork, and setting up the system to best for our clients needs helps us get the information we need to do our jobs well!
