Aire Serv of The Woodlands & Greater Conroe

QuickBooks

Written by: Sheryl Knight

"I have done our bookkeeping and accounting for years and had always done it manually -- even our Aire Serv Franchise Consultant said he was impressed with my detailed bookkeeping! When I heard that we were going to be using Zware as an Aire Serv franchisee I thought I wouldn't have to worry about QuickBooks but then I realized that wasn't the case because they both add a different dimension to our Aire Serv business. Moving to Zware was a huge move and moving to QuickBooks, for me was gigantic!

I was told Out Of The Box Technology was a resource I could use to help me get on track with QuickBooks. Before I had my QuickBooks QuickCheckup I wanted to get some items into QuickBooks so they'd have something to work with. Well, they picked up the ball and ran with it. Out Of The Box Technology urged me to put items into the proper accounts where they should be.

I'm still a work in progress but when I'm done training with Out Of The Box Technology I can see what I'll be able to do! I'll be able to realize where most of my expenditures are and where we need to trim if necessary. Our P&L statement will be more useful because it'll be more accurate by having everything where it's supposed to be.

Mary Hunter has been very congenial. She's very uplifting. Mary is very knowledgeable. When I feel stupid, Mary says, 'Oh no! Not everyone is supposed to know everything about QuickBooks!' She's very encouraging! I do feel much better knowing that it's okay not to know everything about QuickBooks.

I would encourage my fellow Aire Serv franchisees to have a QuickBooks QuickCheckup done. If they are not proficient in QuickBooks, it'd be a really good place to start. And even if they know how to use QuickBooks, it's good to have someone to do a once over on your file to make sure everything is shipshape. I really needed the QuickCheckup and am glad I did it!

I do see the benefit of the QuickBooks QuickCheckup! When you have someone working with you on QuickBooks, you don't have to feel like you are walking into the abyss. The mountain is not as hard to climb when you have someone helping you along the way."
