Our History

Our founder, Susan Pruskin, began using QuickBooks® in the 90s when you purchased a floppy disk and shoved it into the A drive of your computer. Things have certainly changed since then, and Susan has embraced that change. Our company was founded in 2008 with one client. Over fifteen years we’ve expanded our team and worked with over five hundred businesses. In 2023, we changed our focus to our subscription model, working with larger businesses who need a vast array of assistance with their financial data management. We handle the bookkeeping, but we dive much more deeply into the level of tasks necessary for complete understanding.
