Wired South LLC is a mid-size construction company that specializes in smart technology solutions. The president of the company had been the “acting accountant” for 9 years. However, in 2021 he realized that his self-taught accounting methods would not get the company where it needed to go in terms of growth and having the time, clarity and ability to focus on strategic imperatives. The company needed to free its key leader from the time-consuming tasks of invoicing, sending client reminders, and recording expenses in their accounting software to focus on the business.
The challenge for Wired South was to find a partner they could trust to take over the accounting responsibilities that the President had taken care of for so many years. This involved gaining an understanding of the company’s project management system to take over the invoicing process, streamlining their accounting processes, and improving their financial reporting to ensure that they had accurate and up-to-date financial information.
