As a small business, many facets to running your company falls upon your lap. You have to account for billing and finances, ensuring a happy and well-maintained staff, and ensure smooth and successful function as a whole. While certain benefits may not apply – such as having a staff accountant on hand – there are a number of tools out there that can help, including taking your bookkeeping online with QuickBooks. The fact of the matter is, however, that your program will only run as well as your knowledge of it runs deep, making it easy for it to become bogged down and perform sub-optimally. In today’s blog, the team at HWB Services will take a look at the importance of monthly maintenance and how our team is here to help.
Keeping Your Service Up-To-Date
Just as a physical file can become too large with excess envelope-stuffing and crowding, so can your digital files as well. In fact, the more you utilize your program, the less effective it will become down the line if you do not take the steps to properly maintain it. This is often a mistake a number of first-time users make, and can result in more headache than help down the line. In extreme circumstances, a QuickBooks cleanup may be necessary in order to achieve proper function once more, in which a pro will need to go through each individual file all the way from the beginning of use to the current to identify the exact problem. Keep in mind, however, that before this step is reached, you may actually be able to prevent it with the implementation of a monthly maintenance plan.
A routine maintenance plan will include keeping track of the transactions that are fed into your program through your bank feed. This includes matching deposits to A/R and payments to A/P, reconciling all of your banking, credit card, and loan accounts at the end of each month. By implementing a routine maintenance plan and having a professional on hand to help you through it, you can ensure optimal performance out of your software.
