We’ve worked with several industries and specialties with their QuickBooks accounting software. Whether you’re new to QuickBooks or upgrading your file, we can customize an implementation plan specifically for your business.
- Software Selection
During the software selection phase, your QuickBooks consultant will go through a detailed checklist to determine which version of QuickBooks (Online edition, Pro, Premier, Enterprise Solutions, etc.) is needed, the number of licenses required to support your staff needs, any 3rd party applications needed, and if any custom programming or integration is needed.
- System Design
In order to get the most out of QuickBooks, it is crucial that your system is designed and set up properly from the beginning. By conducting a thorough needs analysis, we can generate a detailed system design that meets both your immediate and long-term goals. Our goal is to optimize your system to generate the KPIs, Financial Reports and Management Reports you need to make strategic business decisions.
- File Setup and Internal Controls
During the file setup stage, we’ll configure QuickBooks either on your local network or in a secure, cloud-hosted environment and set up user access. We’ll also set up your file based on the implementation plan we developed for you, such as setting up a customized Chart of Accounts, Lists, Preferences / Settings, Forms, Payroll, Taxes, Templates, Inventory, Memorize Reports, Fixed Assets, and more.
- Third Party and Custom Applications
If during the planning stage we determine that you’ll need a 3rd party app and / or custom programming, we will implement those once we get your base QuickBooks file setup. If you’re using QuickBooks Enterprise, this could be as straighforward as turning on and setting up Intuit’s Advanced Inventory or Reporting Add-On. We can also handle more complex situations that require a custom developed application or integration with external systems.
- Reporting and Automation
Once we’ve got your QuickBooks file and any supporting apps & integrations set-up, we take it further by automating various data-entry tasks and generating reports. We can show you how to generate reports, set-up automation, and / or build any custom report your need so that you get the most out of your QuickBooks data.
