Upgrading Our Technology to Serve You Better

Bionic Woman of the FutureOur office is moving to a secure, cloud-based server this week.

We have contracted with Xcentric, a service that only works with accounting firms, to host our applications and store our data.

Xcentric uses best practices to safeguard all information.

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants has given Xcentric a Service Organization Control report that provides independent validation that Xcentric’s security controls are in accordance with the applicable Trust Service Principles and Criteria (SOC2). This means that our data — and your data — will be safe.

Actually, with a cloud-based approach your information will be better defended against crooks or loss than it has been on our local systems. Xcentric has two secure, geographically distant, US-based, data centers that provide top protection against theft, fire, and natural disasters.

Our partners also believe that the move to the cloud will let our professional staff spend more time doing accounting work and less time being ersatz IT managers.

We are excited!

During the switch over, the firm’s IP addresses will be changing and connections will be disrupted.  There will be times when our email and phones won’t work or won’t work correctly.  We ask that you be patient and try us again in a few minutes, if you encounter any problems.

If you have an urgent need to reach us when our systems are in transition, send us a message at [email protected].  We will monitor that address during this week of change!
