System Evaluation, Set-Up and Training
Choosing the right software for your bookkeeping and financial needs can be a daunting task, The days of "one size fits all" software are long gone. The current trend is to choose a basic application and then customize it with add-on applications and services. Do you need a network setup, a cloud application or a simple desktop one location setup? How do you integrate the different components? Which are compatible? These are just a few of the questions that Your Adding Advantage will address in guiding you through your system evaluation and setup. We don't just help you use the software - we help you use it more efficiently and more effectively.
While we specialize in the QuickBooks product line, we are closely monitoring new accounting solutions such as the "zero data entry" systems currently entering the market.
Some of the solutions we offer to help meet your QuickBooks needs:
