This Month: Pacific Crest Group Offers More!
This month, we want to introduce you to our new web site, which we have designed as an online resource to assist small businesses and others in their pursuit of success. Pacific Crest Group does more than offer Bay Area bookkeeping services. We help our clients create new systems that remove the burden of back office processes. Over the years, we have discovered that most back office ties are tied to bookkeeping, staffing, and computer resources, and often overlap. That’s why we have developed an interdisciplinary approach that addresses all three areas.
3 Quick Tips for Your Business:
1. Assess your IT infrastructure. Do you have a disaster recovery plan, including backup systems? Can you weather a network meltdown?
2. Get intelligence from your accounts. You should be able to get a portrait of how your business is doing with a few mouse clicks, and graph it! If you can’t, it’s time to reassess your accounting software.
3. Be prepared for your next move. No matter where you are in your business lifecycle, your books should be up to date and clean, using best accounting practices. You never know when you may face an audit or need business-critical information. It’s better to keep up than play catch up.

Outsourced Human Resources Services to Increase Operating Efficiencies
Over the course of a seven-year client engagement, PCG’s role has evolved from that of bookkeeper to a more strategic consultative role of CFO, controller, and HR management.
