Whether you have been using Quicken for years, or are a new user, we can help you get the most out of Quicken. We have experience setting up Quicken and training you to manage:
Cash Flow – We will set up Quicken to track and categorize your spending from bank and credit card accounts.
Investments – We will set up Quicken to track brokerage, retirement, stock options, and employee stock purchase programs (ESPP) accounts.
Property – We will set up Quicken to track your home mortgage, and also track income and expenses for any rental property you may own.
Small Business – We will set up Quicken to track income and expenses from sole proprietor small business (Schedule C). We will also set up invoicing and time tracking, all within Quicken.
We can help you clean up your existing Quicken data, and go over "best practices" with you to help you avoid problems in the future. We also have tools that allow us to import older transactions into Quicken, using electronic or paper bank or credit card statements. We can even merge two Quicken files into one, if need be, through a combination of software tools and good, old fashioned know-how.
