There are plenty of companies and individuals out there who are capable of helping with your business’ accounting needs. There are even many who are proficient with QuickBooks, too. Some do a passable job, other’s don’t. If you really want to get the most from QuickBooks and use it to improve your business, however, you should consider hiring a certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor.
A ProAdvisor is an accountant, bookkeeper, CPA, computer professional, educator, or trainer who has gone through Intuit’s rigorous testing program. They know QuickBooks, but they also know small business. Whether you’re talking about intricate accounting issues, interpretation of payroll, or even creating custom reports that give you the business intelligence you need, they can help.
In particular, there are four areas a ProAdvisor helps you interact with QuickBooks:
1. Installation and configuration. Your ProAdvisor helps you get QuickBooks up and running. She’ll make sure it’s set up right the first time, and that you have all of the available features and functionality that fit your business.
2. Troubleshooting. A ProAdvisor is a tremendously useful resource when you hit a snag. He can help with things like file clean up, system errors, technical problems, and more.
3. Customization. Not every business works the same, and a ProAdvisor knows that what works for someone else might not work for you. From custom reports to making the interface best fit your process, she can tailor your QuickBooks implementation to your needs.
4. Education. Your ProAdvisor can be a wonderful resource for learning how to get the most from QuickBooks, and how to do more and more tasks within QuickBooks on your own.
