Great NEW Ways to Process Payments 


It's easy to manage payments with QuickBooks.  Save gas, time and money! If you have QuickBooks 2010, you can now process card and check payments electronically to save time and costly bank fees. Each transaction is automatically recorded in QuickBooks for easy and error-free tracking. 

         Manage payments easily with real-time customer purchase history & other advanced reporting

         Perfect for processing payments online, or by phone, fax, & email

         No external terminal or card swiper required


If you use QuickBooks Online Edition (QBOE) or an older version of QuickBooks (prior to 2010), you still have incredible options for processing both credit cards and checks electronically.  Credit cards can be swiped or key-entered into all versions of QuickBooks.  And checks can now be processed electronically through Intuit, through a "virtual terminal" option.


Call or e-mail Wanda or Tammy for more details.  Intuit is running specials through the end of June, and they are giving extra "perks" to clients who are personally referred by ProAdvisors.  Contact us and we'll get you the best possible pricing and get you started.

Letter From CEO Brad Smith

To our customers,

I deeply apologize for the pain we have caused those of you affected by this week's outage. We hold ourselves to the highest standards in dependability and customer service, and over the past two days, we have failed to live up to those expectations.

My leaders and I have spoken to a number of you and there is simply no excuse for having such a negative impact on you.

It is our priority to work with those of you who are affected and, where we can, make things right. We have all-hands on deck to help you resolve the issues caused by this outage.

I want to share with you what we know at this time about what happened. The disruption occurred during a routine maintenance procedure. An accidental but severe power failure during that procedure affected our primary and backup systems, taking a number of Intuit's websites and services offline.

We worked to restore our sites and services as quickly as possible while bringing services back in the safest, most reliable way. We understand your frustration and are sorry it took so long. We understand the important role our services play in your business and life. And we take that responsibility very seriously.

I also want to share that we have no evidence of a security breach or attack on our servers. And at this time, we do not believe there was any damage or loss to customer data.

At this stage, we have teams monitoring the performance of applications and further investigating the cause of the problem so that we can learn from this outage and prevent it from happening again.

I want to thank you for your business and your patience. We will work our hardest to earn back your trust.

Thank you,

Brad Smith
