Founder and Principal

Football season is winding down.  Kids are anticipating winter break.  This could mean only one thing:  the arrival of 'accounting software season'.  I am not referring to the well-known tax season that runs until April 15th of every year.  Instead, I refer to the decision of many businesses to consider a change or implementation of new business software.  Many companies plan for a change in systems to coincide with end of year reporting.  Thus, the busy time is here for many in business software consulting.

Accounting software sales naturally increase during this time of year, as more companies decide to start the year anew.  But software alone does not make a solution.  As simple as some make it sound, a do-it-yourself implementation is a sure prescription for trouble and eventual failure.  The best advice is to get the help of a professional.  A seasoned software consultant can facilitate an implementation, with the right guidance, support, and training.  As one of a select group of Intuit Solution Providers, we guide companies through execution of a well-planned implementation--from installation, to conversion from other systems, to training and follow-up support.
Just as important as the timing of the transition, so is the decision of which financial software is the right fit.  Solutions come in many sizes, both in cost and capacity.  We help companies determine the right solutions with the right due diligence and needs assessments.
The end of football season always brings a champion.  At the end of accounting software season, there is also a winner: the business that undergoes a successful accounting system implementation.  Consultants many times are given the credit for facilitating it, but the success is usually a result from the joint effort between the willing, cooperating client and the experienced consulting firm.
Accounting software season is upon us... my best wishes for this holiday season and the New Year!

Airplane groundIn the holiday travel season, because overbooking sends less traffic to competing airlines and helps fill as many seats as possible, airlines are doing much more of it than in the past.

When too many passengers show up for a flight, they ask that some voluntarily give up their seats. The reward for being bumped is usually a free ticket, but there are often many restrictions attached to it.

Department of Transportation rules requires that airlines offer cash compensation if a passenger is bumped against their will. Airlines push vouchers, but cash is better and easier to use.

Safe travels everyone!
