Right now, if you are like most construction company owners, your construction accounting records are in an unlocked file cabinet, or worse, sitting on someone's desk. As an accounting firm, our client's privacy and security remain our top priorities and are continually looking at ways to develop and evaluate our system to prevent breach and network holes. We utilize 128-bit Secure Socket Layer encryption which ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. There are two levels of restrictions and passwords must be entered before you can get your data file.
At Fast Easy Accounting, Cloud Security is not an option- it is a fundamental requirement. We only use Intuit Approved Commercial Hosting Services. We have taken steps to select the best to ensure that your data is as secure as that found for online banking and financial institutions. Their Cloud Security rests on U.S. based servers, backups, data centers, and technical support. Not one aspect of our Cloud security relies on outsourced services or offshore locations.
Online Data Protection is critical to being able to provide you reliable and professional grade outsourced contractors bookkeeping services. With this in mind, let me assure you by answering the common questions contractors ask regarding cybersecurity, data, and financial concerns:
Where are the bookkeeping and accounting done?
Our headquarters is in Lynnwood, Washington, where everything's done. We have a team of qualified construction bookkeepers, construction accountants, and support staff. Everyone understands the importance of maintaining the integrity of your data and nothing is sent out.
Can other people access my data?
No one can have access to your data without your company's express permission; this includes your CPA, advisors and specific employees. We can also set up restrictions so that specific functions can be limited to those you do allow access.
Can I access the QuickBooks Desktop version securely in the cloud?
Yes, we outsource to an Intuit approved commercial hosting environment so we could offer our clients all of the benefits of the full desktop version of QuickBooks accessible online 24/7, and it has been a huge success!
Will you be managing our money?
The only money we touch is our Fees.
Auto receives for Monthly Outsourced Accounting and Bookkeeping Services on the 1st day of each month.
Auto receives for Weekly Outsourced Accounting and Bookkeeping Services on Monday of each week.
You sign all checks. We do not touch your money.
Will I lose control of my company by outsourcing my bookkeeping?
You maintain 100% control of all the decisions. You decide who gets paid, when, and how much they are paid. We provide you with the list of payables and record the transactions, but you approve all invoices for payment and sign all checks and control your credit cards.
The cost of good bookkeeping combined with secured cyber information is priceless. Having clean, up-to-date bookkeeping records, accurate financial reports, and protected data all make up for a good night's sleep. By eliminating all your paperwork frustrations and providing your business document security, you can focus more on doing what you love and being with the ones you love.
