Software Simplified will set up your computerized accounting system,
document it and train your employees. When we walk out your door, you will
have a fully functional system ready for daily processing, employees who know
how to use it and a number to call if you need any help.
Accounting systems that we support include: QuickBooks,
Peachtree, Quicken and others. Sorry, no MAS90.
(Well, maybe if you twist my arm ;-)
- Help you choose the accounting package that best
meets your needs
- Because we are familiar with a number of accounting
packages (but don't sell any), we can help you get the most bang for your
buck. We will ask you a series of questions to determine what your
current needs are, as well as what your future plans might be. We'll
also determine the level of control you want to have, the types of
information you want to see, etc.
- Configure the software to work with your business
- Each software package has different strengths and
weaknesses. In addition, portions of the software can be customized for
your specific uses. It is generally best if customization takes place
up front, before you enter your information. This cuts down on
confusion (hmm, should I use "bank fee" or "interest expense" for the late
fee on my credit card?) and streamlines your workload.
- Provide as
much or as little help as needed
- Every service offered by Software Simplified is
completely customized. This means, for example, that if your business
won't be using the payroll module, we won't waste your time and money
teaching you how to use it! If you add employees later and decide
payroll would be useful, we'll be happy to come back.
- Explain basic accounting concepts in layman's
- In smaller businesses, everyone wears many hats. In
many cases this means that the person responsible for the bookkeeping may
not necessarily know the terminology. We can help you become familiar
with the basic concepts, the reasoning behind them and what they mean in
terms of your business.
- No one likes to open the user manual that comes with the
software, but there are times when resorting to the documentation is
necessary. We will, if you wish, provide you with documentation that
details the procedures that your office uses for specific tasks.
For instance, if you handle payments from individuals differently than
payments from corporations, we'll document those processes for you. Our
documentation will be provided to you both as hardcopy and on diskette so
that you can easily make modifications if your internal procedures change.
This type of documentation is also extremely useful for new employees
who come on board after the training sessions!
- On-site training
- Our training will take place at your office with your
actual information, not in a classroom using a sample company. If you
have questions, you can ask them immediately. And you'll never have to
sit through a lengthy explanation of the 200% declining balance method of
calculating depreciation that is only useful to the guy sitting two
rows over who asked a question about it!
- Phone support
- Questions arise after the training is over. You are
absorbing a lot of information and you want to make sure that you are
putting what you've learned to good use. Phone calls are welcomed and
encouraged. We want to see you utilize the full
capabilities of your accounting system. And we don't want to have to
come out and fix your mistakes (yes, it's more money for us, but it's
depressing! And having a large and happy group of successful
customers is way better than money anyway ;-)

This is a new area of our site. Software Simplified would NEVER breach the
confidentiality of our customers. Therefore, this section is under
construction until we obtain express permission from some of them to use
their names. (-Barbara Meyer, September 9, 2001)
As an incentive, we will also provide links to their websites
here to (hopefully!) generate some additional traffic, and therefore revenue,
for them, too!
