Quickbooks ProAdvisor

Written by Shelley Ricketts on May. 22, 2018

There are many benefits that you can receive from KWB being a member of the Quickbooks ProAdvisor program.

Here are a few examples of how we can pass along these benefits to you:

1. Quickbooks Experts
As a Quickbooks ProAdvisor we have access to specialized Quickbooks webinar training and stay up to date on the latest program features and updates.  This expertise coupled with our remote and onsite accounting service allows us to provide you with superior software training and support at your convenience.  We can provide training and support services at your office or through secure remote computer access. Simply choose what works best for you.

2. Priority Support
Have you ever had a Quickbooks question or problem that you couldn’t answer on your own? At KWB, we have highly qualified and experienced staff that will get you quick answers to your Quickbooks questions.  We also have immediate access to Priority Support with a Quickbooks specialist to make sure you get timely answers and the best advice possible.

3. Software Discounts
We receive Quickbooks software at a reduced price and can pass those savings on to you.  This means a 30% savings off of retail on all Intuit products.  If you haven’t upgraded your Quickbooks software in a while or are thinking of becoming a first time user, contact us to take advantage of the software discounts that are available.

As an example, just last week we assisted a client that was upgrading from Quickbooks Premier to Quickbooks Enterprise.  As a result of them engaging us to find out about the program and whether it would suit their needs, we were able to recommend a suitable product and also uncover some significant savings for them on their license fees.

ProAdvisors offer a 30% discount on the first year program fees, and Quickbooks has promotional offers from time to time.  In this case, the sales contact was also able to offer 20% off license fees for two years which added up to $2,160 in savings.

If you need more information or have any questions, feel free to contact us at 780.466.6204, or info@kwbllp.com.
