Changed our Business! Working with Susan has been a real gift. She has the rare talent of being able to match systems with great accounting knowledge and more importantly – common sense! More than once, Susan has helped me understand the spirit of the accounting principle and a cleaner way to present it via QuickBooks Enterprise. At Kid Made Modern, we look forward to many more successes with Susan’s help.
We’d be lost without Susan! Susan has been wonderful in helping with the set-up of QuickBooks, transition from Premier to Enterprise, aid in finding a solution for barcode scanning, and all other QuickBooks needs. We ran into every problem you could imagine and she was always there to help and find a solution.
Our transition from an external firm to internal accounting should have been accomplished long before, so bringing the financials in-house was more complicated than it should have been. Step in Susan Hawkins. She set up our whole finance stack – Quickbooks Enterprise, Right Networks, Wegility – identified issues that we could resolve easily, and taught us the best processes for maintaining a clean set of books. Susan’s expertise with Quickbooks is second to none. Even people who think they are experts at Quickbooks have many things they can learn from Susan. I highly recommend Hawkins Financial to any business that needs accounting help. I don’t know where we would be without her.
It has been a pleasure to work with both of you. Thanks to your help we have been able to make much better use of QuickBooks and integrate it more thoroughly with our eCommerce business. With some hand-holding from you we were able to manage integrations that seemed overwhelming at first sight. I found the videos you made particularly helpful, especially when I wanted to go back and refresh my memory. Thanks again for all your help, I am sorry we didn’t meet up a long time ago.
