Expert IT consultants from our accounting and consulting firm assist clients in addressing their current and future technology needs.

  • Integrated Accounting Desktops
  • Client portals
  • Virtual meetings
  • IT consulting partner 

Integrated Accounting Desktops

Your business infrastructure in the cloud

You may have heard how more and more businesses and personal computing users are switching their data and applications to ‘the cloud’. What started off as a buzz word a few years ago has now taken the business world by storm. Imagine never having to purchase, configure or manage another server. Now imagine your data being stored securely offsite and accessible 24/7 from anywhere in the world on any device. This is the power of cloud computing and it forms an integral part of the Integrated Accounting Desktop service.

 

Experience higher availability and productivity

If you are currently fighting a losing battle with server support issues, a lack of resources, licensing hassles and redundant hardware, cloud computing can take away these issues practically overnight. By hosting your data, QuickBooks®, Microsoft Office®, and applications on cloud servers, you instantly take away the many headaches associated with in-house IT systems. Data backup and centralized data are just some of the features we have to offer with our cloud services.

 

Have your accountants and bookkeeper in the cloud with you

With your Integrated Accounting Desktop you have back-end support using your QuickBooks®, and other accounting related services always on your side. Never have to drop-off a CD, thumb drive, laptop or other types of data sharing device again! We can access your information through your remote server and help you with any accounting issues you may encounter from any location any time of day.

 

Client portals

Easy, professional and secure file sharing

Our Client Portals are a password-protected space where you can exchange business files with us easily and securely. Whether you need to send us a large file, conduct a secure file transfer or set up a collaboration space for project-related files, our Client Portal is the solution for you.

 

Replace your insecure email attachments with a secure link to our client portal. Experience how accountants and professionals have securely transferred information with our file sharing solution!

 

Virtual meetings

Meetings made easy!

If you are crunched for time, out of town, want to stay in your relaxed atmosphere or if you would like a select date to meet with your ICPA consultant, we offer virtual meetings. We use Skype®, conference calling and Gotomeeting.com® to connect with our clients over the web. Look for select virtual meeting dates during tax season or request a virtual meeting when scheduling your next appointment.
