Technology that GP is currently using

by | May 31, 2019 | Blog, Taxes | 0 comments

We are approaching mid-year (for those of us on a calendar year…) and enough time has passed that we can reflect back on some of the technology that GP has been using and is no longer using in 2019. First up, let’s have a drink for those who are no longer with us:

  • QuickBooks Desktop – GP no longer supports this dinosaur, get out while you can…
  • Stripe – Did you know that uses a Wells Fargo gateway…?
  • HubDoc – Bank feeds are not ready for primetime
  • Jobber – A good product, no longer friendly

There are also the software platforms that our clients use that we tolerate and do not recommend:

  • Square – Basis functions work, does not automate well, reports are clunky
  • Homebase – a mediocre product at best, not very effective at reporting
  • Clover – Terrible reporting, difficult to navigate, not user-friendly
  • PayPal – Horrible payment platform for reporting, easy to use

Lastly, the list of platforms that we enjoy use internally and those that we recommend to other businesses:

  • Xero – shameless plug. Still better than most
  • Gusto – When was the last time you actually enjoyed payroll?
  • IntegraPay – Excellent e-commerce solution and payment processor
  • LedgerSync – for accountants and online access nerds
  • GoProposal – How the UK makes accounting firms easy to work with!
  • Malartu – an NC native tech platform that offers analytics…

If you came across this list and had no idea what any of these bullet points refer to, contact us immediately so we can engage our nerd on your behalf. If you know any of the items on this list and have a different opinion about them, please share it with us (we don’t bite). Either way, expect an updated list every so often and stay in touch.

Unfortunately, I found GMP when my mother passed. She had a trust set up and I had no experience with one. I received excellent advice prior to filing taxes, that allow for the transfer of assets with little tax implication. The tax process was simple for me, Justin took over once he had details and cleared up all question from filing our taxes. Thank you for a job well done!read more

My partner and I started our very first small business last year. Justin has been a blessing to us. Being new at all of this, we didn’t understand much of how business taxes work. Justin explained and answer all of questions that we have. He took care of everything for us throughout the year and have made life so much easier for us. I couldn’t have asked for a better CPA. Highly recommended!read more
