Bookkeeping and Advisory Services

Using a collaboration platform, we work right on your computer, where you can observe, follow and learn from everything we do.

While we are assisting you in your back-office needs, we are actually working on the computer you will be using and showing you how to use the programs we recommend to digitize your office.

Not only is this method vastly more efficient, but it significantly reduces your cost at the same time as it allows us to set up your computer.  When the transition to in-house management is made, your computer is ready to go. 

We train you and/or your associate
at your own desk
on your own computer.
