December 2015

In the span of only days, two clients approached us in a bit of desperation for help in setting up QuickBooks for their internal use, for eerily similar reasons. Turns out that in both cases, their external accountant had just passed away. We did not personally know these accountants, but still a sad note.

In one of the clients, the accountant was who took care of their QuickBooks. He entered their monthly activity into a QuickBooks file maintained by him, only to present the client with financials every month. 

2015 IT in Review

As we reach the end of 2015, here is my list of 10 IT items to consider and plan for next year:

1.  Make sure your OS is current, I recommend running Windows 10. Windows XP and Vista are unsupported and vulnerable to attack. Windows 7 and 8 get a free upgrade to Windows 10 (until July 2016). You have less than one year to take advantage of the free upgrade offer. Just make sure you do it before July 28th 2016. Plan Accordingly.

2. Upgrade to QuickBooks 2016 - if you have the Intuit service plan, you can get the new version of software included in your plan, we can help you with the upgrade if needed
