“It was hard to keep track of all the proper paperwork needed to track the development of our business. With the proper team dedicating their time to record our information, we have a better understanding of the risks we can take as a business. Keepers’ transparency in communicating with us about every detail regarding our business helped us feel more confident about the financial success of our business. The open and honest relationship we share with Keepers has been a vital part in moving our business forward, and is definitely worth the investment. With Keepers we didn’t just receive accounting and advisory services, we gained a friendship as well.”
“Despite being successful in the technology and social media industry, Ghaliah Tech lacked in the financial and accounting aspect prior to hiring Keepers. We didn’t understand the importance of accounting, our bookkeeping wasn’t consistent, and we didn’t have a proper system in place. Keepers was able to develop an accounting base and system for us, which has helped us keep our finances on track and allowed us to effectively understand what was going on with our business from a financial aspect. The best part of working with Keepers for us, was the team. Not only did they get the job done, but they were extremely helpful. They answered all our questions, were very attentive and put our minds at ease. Keepers has played a major role in our success and we would proudly refer any business to them.”

“When we first started out, we faced a lot of difficulty trying to organize our finances and financial documentation. Like many small business, we tried solving the issue on our own, but lacked the knowledge to successfully do so and ultimately turned to Keepers for help. We can’t begin to describe the difference this decision made to our business operations. The guidelines they provided us with helped us stay on track, and we finally had a clear picture of our financial standing, which allowed us to make better decisions and plans for our business which were based on facts and accurate estimations. What we also found in working with Keepers, was that we were better able to deal with any critical or urgent situations. Keepers helped us solve problems that we came across quickly and efficiently.”
“We are happy to have started working with Keepers from the very beginning of our start-up journey. We’ve managed to keep our finances organized and maintain clear insight into the state of our financial health.

“Before working with Keepers, we were making a lot of our business decisions based on assumptions. The task of figuring out the accounting and financial aspects of our business was overwhelming, and we faced a lot of difficulty in being able to keep accurate figures. As much as we tried to be organized and push ourselves to keep track of our finances, we couldn’t do it, and that was when we decided to move forward with Keepers. The supportive and knowledgeable team at Keepers tracked our finances, provided us with valuable advice and continues to support us in growing our business. I think many small businesses don’t realize the vital role the accounting and financial aspects of a business play in its success. Keepers helped us realize this and we would happily recommend them to any business.”

We didn’t have a correct accounting system, or an inventory management system in place, and monthly performance reports weren’t being generated. Although we tried working with accountants previously, we weren’t able to receive enough information to be able to make informed decisions. Keepers helped us set up streamlined systems and processes. We implemented a new payment system and by being able to generate monthly performance reports, we were able to improve our business. We believe Keepers is a must for any growing business."
