QuickBooks Setup Services
If you use QuickBooks and need to upgrade or if you are contemplating transitioning to QuickBooks from a different accounting software, you have come to the right place. From QuickBooks installation to ongoing support and training, we are here for all your QuickBooks needs.
Bernard Roesch and MISSION have offered QuickBooks setup services for over 15 years, helping many small businesses install and efficiently integrate QuickBooks.
QuickBooks Setup, Installation, and Integration
- Get the best results from QuickBooks
- Install QuickBooks and train your staff

- Integrate QuickBooks with other software
- Provide quick answers to task-oriented questions
- Ensure your books are ready for your CPA at tax time
Compare QuickBooks accounting software to a race car. You understand the advantages of having a fast car, but unless you’re skilled in driving one, it could be disadvantageous (even disastrous) to take the wheel without experience. We have years of experience using versions of QuickBooks to get results for our customers. We help setup QuickBooks so the software is tailored to help you run your business better.
QuickBooks enables custom reporting. However, if you’ve never used this feature before, you’ll need a bit of training. Furthermore, we can show shortcuts and ways to analyze data for better-informed and more-comprehensive reporting. For example, you can illuminate profit for each invoice listed, which makes it easier to figure commission for sales representatives. Also, get a better analysis of each customer by allowing reports to show amounts billed, paid, and outstanding for each.
Once your QuickBooks accounting system is successfully installed, we will also work with you to integrate QuickBooks throughout your business operations to achieve long-term success.
- Review your entire process flow from customer order to final billing and identify opportunities to leverage the power of QuickBooks
- Map QuickBooks tasks and user roles to staff you have on hand
- Look for opportunities to automate tasks and processes such as with batch imports or integrating QuickBooks with third-party tools
- Eliminate data silos and redundant processes such as are often seen in the use of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets
- Review your IT infrastructure as it relates to QuickBooks to ensure data security and consistent uptime
- Train your personnel to ensure that QuickBooks data is entered accurately and as it occurs
- Set up management controls such as with automated dashboards and key performance indicators
- Support your business with planning tools such as budgets, forecasts, Board reports, or financial models.
Whereas other QuickBooks firms limit their practice to bookkeeping, accounting, or tax, MISSION will work as your partner in many aspects of your business to support business growth and profitability.
Whether you need help with QuickBooks Online or Enterprise, we help with installation and integration. For example, those in retail may need to integrate QuickBooks with Point of Sales systems (POS) and inventory systems.
QuickBooks Multi User Setup
We can help you establish a QuickBooks multi-user network to share company-wide files. The setup requires adjusting settings in several places including your computer server. You can adjust administration rights appropriately so internal files are kept safe while shared by a company network.
QuickBooks Email Setup
Tons of other products can be integrated with QuickBooks, and your team will want help with setting-up email to integrate with QB. Many major business email systems, such as Outlook, easily integrates with Desktop and other versions. Different versions allow for alternative options. We’re here to provide advice and help with the integration.
QuickBooks is a business investment yet it takes time to learn how to use the accounting software more efficiently. We train your staff to use QuickBooks more effectively and in a way that makes the most sense given your specific business needs. To start, view our QuickBooks resources provided by our own Bernard Roesch.
However, you don’t want to train your employees to be novices. We can show your employees how to use the accounting software like specialized experts! For example, job costing in QuickBooks enables a business to see money generated by each project (not just per client). Improve upon estimating expenses by measuring labor, cost of materials, mileage, etc. Ideally, you’ll learn to analyze the books to illuminate what areas of the business are the most profitable!
Job Costing Support
QuickBooks can be a great tool for general bookkeeping and accounting, but advanced users are able to learn important secrets about their business by using the job costing features in QuickBooks.
Job Costing in QuickBooks enables you to:
- Track the revenue generated by each project for a client – not just revenue by client
- Apply expenses directly to a project such as your team’s labor, milage, and other costs
- Learn which projects are the most profitable so you can focus on those!
In short, using Job Costing in QuickBooks will enable you to have a deep understanding of each project so that you can increase profitability over time. With the highest Intuit ProAdvisor Certifications, MISSION will guide you through the setup process, or do it for you so that you can magically reveal the secrets to greater profitability in your company.
Get the Most from QuickBooks Using Little Time
- Exceed the system requirements. You’re going to be waiting for windows to open and screens to switch if you don’t have enough computing power behind QuickBooks.
- Keep your computer free of viruses and spyware. Not only do these put your data at risk, they slow down performance.
- Close other windows when possible. This, too, will speed up the system performance when you’re using QuickBooks.
- Learn frequently used shortcuts. There are a variety of hotkeys and menu shortcuts available. Which ones you use depend, to a large degree, on exactly what you do with QuickBooks.
- Be thoroughly familiar with the software. The more confident and comfortable you are using it, the faster you’ll be.
- Turn off automatic updates for QuickBooks. Automatic updates are useful, but you don’t need to have it running constantly. Consider turning it on only at the beginning of the month.
- Make a few changes to preferences. You can turn off the audit trail, the Navigator, and a number of warnings and reminders. These should all speed things up, and result in fewer overall clicks.
- Make use of customer profiles. Many of your customers will have similar characteristics. Use profiles to save time when entering customer data.
- Consider desktop QuickBooks over QuickBooks Online. QuickBooks Online may be more convenient, but accessing it is usually slower than the desktop version.
- Minimize Add-Ons. There are many useful add-ons for QuickBooks. They don’t all need to run every time you start it up.
