Accounting Systems Set Up

Project Details

What We Need
  • Setup of selected accounting software (e.g. Aplos, Araize)
  • Training and guidelines on how to manage system and generate basic reports
Additional Details

We need a hand exiting our hybrid accounting system, (part spreadsheet,part Quickbooks) and making a full transition to Quickbooks desktop. We are looking for assistance to take full advantage of the system.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Quickbooks 2019, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have A current company file, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,409 , allowing us to expand our Independent Living training services, creating opportunities for individuals experiencing disability to achieve and maintain their independence.

In the last 2 years our agency has grown substantially. Our new organization needs transparency and accountability that a digital system provides.
