This year has certainly had a number of challenges, but as we look back we see that PCG’s accounting department has grown 40% due to new clients and an increased work load. We’ve also added several dozen QuickBooks Online clients; the latest way of managing accounting over the Internet is extremely cost effective and efficient, and it’s proving to be a great option for many smaller businesses. Given the bumpy economy, why have we experienced growth in this area? We believe it’s because more businesses recognize the advantage of outsourcing their major back-office services. In addition, we’ve seen an increase in demand for clean accounting systems that produce actionable reports that enable business owners to make informed decisions. New clients are engaging us because they need better accounting proceses and information, which we can often provide for less than they can develop and maintain on their own.
