This is a brief description of the service ...

Key Benefits

Assistance with implementing the accounting software.
Easily available by telephone or in the office for follow up with newly installed accounting software. 
Significant experience with Quickbooks. If you would like to know the difference between the Pro version and the non-Pro version let me know and I'll either e-mail or fax you the chart off the back of the product box. I currently assist clients who are using versions 5.0, 6.0, 1999, 2000, and 2001.
Assistance with spreadsheet construction.
Advise as to how to get more out of your computer. 
Analysis of current computer needs (upgrade vs. purchase new).

I assist businesses with Quickbooks (all versions), Peachtree, and M.Y.O.B.
