Robert Gerace, CEO of CRC Reports CPA's and Bookkeepers Find CRC's QuickBooks™ Hosting Option Extremely Valuable

Share Article

CPA's and bookkeepers face a huge challenge managing the books of many clients with standalone QuickBooks™ installations. SecureQB makes light work of that challenge.

According to Robert Gerace, CEO of CRC, Financial professionals are often in need of access to the books of their clients. This need would commonly cause their clients to:

  •     Stop what they’re doing
  •     Make an Accountant’s copy
  •     Find a way to transfer the copy (mail, in-person, email, ftp)
  •     Communicate the latest password
  •     Ensure the accountant and/or bookkeeper is able to access the data

Then a complicated set of rules come in to play about what the end user is able to do with an Accountant’s copy outstanding. The professional makes changes to the file (but only for a certain date range), and the transfer process is reversed. Finally, the end user is required to merge the Accountant’s copy with the actual copy.

All of the above is supposed to happen with minimal interruption to the end user, and minimal work on the financial professional’s side.

In reality, the above is a cumbersome process that is prone to error and inconvenience. Enter With SecureQB, the end user’s files are hosted safely, securely, and reliably on a set of cloud-based Internet servers. The end user accesses the files with the same speed s/he notices as if the files were located on a laptop or desktop within the office. However, in addition to the end user being able to access the files, the CPA team, bookkeepers, and other office employees have access at the same time.

With the solution, Accountant’s copies and all of their associated hassle are gone forever; and financial professionals can save hundreds of hours in trying to deal with and become software support technicians trying to talk their clients through making them.

Additionally, changes and read-only access operations happen instantly; so businesses with a need to have continual accounting help do so in real time.

For the above reasons alone, CRC’s CPA and bookkeeping clients find great value in the service. However, in addition to all the above, CRC offers group discounts to financial professionals. By purchasing the hosted solution with a volume discount from CRC and reselling to their clients at retail, financial professionals also have the ability to turn the solution into a revenue producing solution.

The combined power of increased revenue with decreased expense – all the while improving service to their clients makes the solution a huge win for financial professionals.

CRC, Computer Resource Center, LLC was founded in 1989 in Tampa Florida as a software development company for the Consumer Packaged Goods industry. Beginning in 1996, CRC began serving its software in the cloud as a provider of Software as a Service. Since the year 2000, CRC has grown and diversified and become four distinct but synergistic business units.
