How Does Online Bookkeeping Work at KeyRing?

How Does Online Bookkeeping Work at KeyRing?

When shopping for an online bookkeeping company, it can be hard for many business owners to determine what differentiates a run-of-the-mill bookkeeper from a boutique firm, like KeyRing. Part of what distinguishes KeyRing from most other firms is collaboration, customization and the hands-on support that we pride ourselves on providing to every one of our clients.

Many of our clients originally came to us with the desire for better access to timely, reliable, and actionable information, as well as the need to use their books to better understand the health of their business, without knowing what it was specifically that they wanted access to or how to get that to that information on their own.

Whether you currently employ a bookkeeper who just needs some helpful training to get up to speed on the current technology or you’re doing the books yourself and are looking for a boutique firm like KeyRing to take over the day-to-day bookkeeping tasks and in-depth reporting, we are here to help you get the information you need, when you need it.

Customizable Bookkeeping Services that Grow With Your Business

At KeyRing, we pride ourselves on offering customizable services that help assist you where you need it, today and in the future. As your business grows, KeyRing has the expertise to grow with you, ensuring you’re always getting the level of service your business needs.  We accomplish this in a number of ways including:

  • Providing our clients with direct access to our years of experience to answer any questions you have and help you figure out other important questions you might not even know to ask.
  • Utilizing online accounting and industry-specific tools to handle the data and help crunch the numbers, which enables us to help you better understand what’s happening in your business.
  • Staying up-to-date on the ever-evolving and expanding ecosystem of online software and applications solutions so that you don’t have to. When your business outgrows its current applications, you can rest easy knowing that KeyRing can help find the right solution.

“KeyRing makes my record keeping simple and seamless. Heather frees me up to focus on running my business without the tedium of worrying about bookkeeping. As a small business owner, this is priceless!”     –  Anita Best CFB

Here’s how we can make this happen for your company.

1. Collaboration & Support

One of our biggest differentiators is how we collaborate with and support the business owners we work with.

After speaking with hundreds of business owners over the years, we’ve developed a way of interacting with our clients that helps them feel that there are no bad questions. Regardless of their business background or level of business savvy, they’ll receive knowledgeable and respectful answers from us.

We find that when we start asking about what’s going on in a client’s business that the owner’s wheels start turning as to what other types of information they want answers to. They start embracing that process and sharing those questions with us. They know that if they have a question, they’ll get an answer, so they can just ask away!

So not only can you get answers to those questions keeping you up at night but also to all the “wish-list” questions you may have, too. Questions like, “What’s this business segment’s performance?” or “What will my cash flow look like after I have my first quarterly tax planning session with my CPA?”

Businesses run on information, but the important, essential information can often be lost in the noise of day-to-day business. While information is power, it’s actionable, refined information that is the most powerful.

Regardless of whether this is your first business or if you’re a serial entrepreneur, KeyRing has the expertise to speak with you about your business in a language that you’ll understand so that you can spend less time trying to sort through the noise and more time growing your business.

2. Customization

While platforms such as QuickBooks Online or Xero are great at collecting data, the default reports and out-of-the-box chart of accounts can only go so far. These default tools have their place but, overall, they tend to throw a lot of high-level, generic data at the business owner which isn’t going to help them make purposeful business decisions, sometimes quite the opposite as now they have extra noise they must try and sort through.

After we’ve helped a client focus in on the type of information they need, our next priority is to make sure the client’s software ecosystem is collecting that data and that we are then relaying that information to the business owners in a way that is purposeful and meaningful to them.

Honing that information into just the right level of detail and frequency of delivery takes the guesswork out of the equation and can even make looking at the numbers enjoyable.

3. Online Ecosystem

But having expertly crafted information isn’t helpful if you don’t have access to it when you need it.

That’s where harnessing online solutions becomes so powerful.  Because the tech solutions we use are online and cloud-based, everyone has access to the same set of data at the same time. Gone are the problems of yesterday, like file transfers errors, incompatible versions of accounting platforms, and deliverable delays.

On top of that, the bookkeeping and accounting software ecosystem has been exploding in recent years with online web-based solutions to enhance most of the major accounting platforms, like Xero or QuickBooks Online.

This has resulted in a plethora of options to help business owners with just about every conceivable business need. While this expansion is fantastic, it can be quite overwhelming for business owners trying to select the right solutions for their business’ needs.

To help our clients cut through the confusion, we start off by partnering with best-in-class solutions such as Xero and QuickBooks Online, Gusto, Tsheets, Hubdoc, and Bill.com. From there, we build upon those platforms by working with you to find specific industry or need-based solutions to expand your accounting platform’s capabilities. We also offer online or on-site training to help you and your staff so that everyone is up-to-speed and taking advantage of all that your new software offers.

At the end of the day, helping business owners is our passion. Whether that’s providing them with the information they’re looking for, consulting on software solutions, or just giving them a little extra peace of mind, at KeyRing, helping other small businesses is what drives us.
