Vine News, December 2009
2009 Wrap Up
From John Priest, VP of Operations

I hope this message finds all of you extremely busy with the holiday season...needless to say most of you will be happy to bid goodbye to the economy that was 2009 and look forward to improved sales in 2010.  With that being said, let this serve as a reminder to those clients who have not finished their 2010 budgets with their Vine Solutions Client Manager to make sure that gets wrapped up in the next two weeks.  
Other notes for December: Vine Solutions offices will be closed for the Christmas and New Years holidays which fall on consecutive Fridays this year.  This also coincides with the end of the period for all of our clients so financial packages and meetings may be delayed by a couple of days from what you are used to.  Please check in with your Vine Solutions Client Manager or representative if you have any questions about when to expect your financials for December.
Also due to the short week for Christmas and New Years, and because most of our clients will be closed on those two days, payrolls will have to be processed no later than Tuesday for Thursday delivery especially for those of our clients who utilize direct deposit thru ADP.  If you have any questions about payroll processing for those two weeks, don't hesitate to contact your Payroll Specialist here at Vine Solutions.
And one last note, in the next two weeks you will receive our annual Client Survey via email.  Please take a few moments to give us your thoughtful feedback as we use that feedback to improve our services to our clients. 
All of us here at Vine Solutions appreciates your business and we look forward to helping our clients achieve financial success in 2010.
Happy Holidays!
