I have been working as an accountant and small business bookkeeper in public practice for the last 13 years. I have attended countless hours of continuing professional education as well as technical training on cutting-edge industry technology. I enjoy seeking out efficiency and systemizing processes as well as coaching and training business owners to have a well-oiled "accounting department", even if it means just them... on the weekends.
I have migrated my practice to almost exclusively using QuickBooks online. Intuit has a long history of producing full accounting packages and have now adapted that functionality into a sleek, user-friendly format while maintaining the required basic accounting principles. It almost gamify's your accounting tasks and takes away the bore factor. Well, it does for mutants like me.
Bill.com is an electronic accounts payable platform. The cool part is I can set up your bills to be paid and you'll receive an alert and approve them for payment, all on your smartphone. Payments are either sent out electronically or via a live paper check. Done, and done.
Hubdoc Certified - 2017 - Present
Hubdoc is an electronic inbox for managing workflow and paper trail management. I use this for you to forward, upload or otherwise submit live & historic source documents for processing, whether that is generating expense transactions or setting up bills that need to be paid. This also satisfies the record retention requirement from the IRS.
QuickBooks Time (formerly TSheets) 2010 - present
Tsheets is an employee scheduling and time tracking app that integrates directly into QuickBooks and Gusto payroll products. I recommend this app for tracking employee hours, overtime, PTO, job costs and scheduling.
Gusto Payroll 2015 - present
Gusto payroll is a low-cost payroll solution that I recommend for those with few employees where cost is the major deciding factor. It features an awesome fully electronic employee onboarding process as well as a set-it-and-forget-it style payroll schedule. This is my go-to for Sub -S Corporations with 1 or 2 individuals on payroll.
