QuickBooks Setup Services

QuickBooks is a user-friendly and easy to use system, provided the initial setup is implemented properly. In fact, the majority of QuickBooks problems discovered after implementation stem from improper initial setup. Get started on the right track and avoided costly problems in the future. You will receive a QuickBooks file customized for your business based upon the information that you provide.

Here's a list of the services that we can provide during your QuickBooks setup:

  • Software installation and support
  • Design and set up the chart of accounts and the entire accounting system, including payroll, accounts receivable, inventory, and accounts payable

QuickBooks Training And Coaching Services

We provide one on one training, and support, in your office, or our office, or a coffee shop setting, or a shared desktop environment, at a time that is convenient for you, including weekends. We can work with your live QuickBooks file, and our training is based to your skill level, and on issues and features that are relevant for your business.  While a one-on-one instructor-led QuickBooks training session may be more expensive than attending a group class, it is a good investment when you have your specific QuickBooks issues to solve or you need to get QuickBooks started in the right direction.  I can help you determine the best solutions for your particular QuickBooks accounting issues, and give you a strategy for how best to pursue your short-term and long-term goals for your business. Getting off on an ill-directed path in QuickBooks accounting can be very costly in the long run; getting the right professional advice from the start will certainly be well worth the time and investment.

We can train and support you on Pro, Premier, Online, industry-specific editions, and Enterprise versions of QuickBooks. Our one-on-one training is customized for your business. Email us or call us, to schedule your implementation / training / support services, to learn more, and to discuss your requirements. Free initial telephone consultation.  We would welcome the opportunity to work with you.
