Let’s talk Accounting. When did you start working with indinero and how did you hear about us?
We started with indinero back in February this year, and discovered it through researching various accounting platforms and services. It was important for us to get our accounting in order right from the start, even before we launched to minimize any long-term pain.
So why did you choose indinero? What was the selection process like?
We had a couple of options, but we chose indinero mainly because of the full-service offering. I didn’t have the time or interest in managing the headaches of bookkeeping/accounting, and indinero filled that void. Their platform was also very user-friendly and robust.
What are three ways having indinero impacts your business?
1. I don’t need to hire a full-time accountant or bookkeeper.
2. I have confidence that my record-keeping is accurate, which alleviates any worry
3. I have more time to spend running the business
How do these things help you accomplish your mission?
It allows us to manage our cash flow and my time can be spent on revenue-producing activity.
What is the most important value indinero brings to your business?
Where is your company headed and how does indinero fit into that vision?
We certainly have goals to scale quickly and need a sound financial partner along the way. As we expand, our needs will grow, and our hope and expectation is that indinero will be right there to grow with us.
What is one thing you would you like to share with our audience?
InDinero brings expertise in their field that I can lean on.
