Client Testimonials — Set-up, Catch-up, Clean-up

  • Best in Class Business Partners
    It is difficult to put into words the high esteem I hold for Julie Dudley and Silver Pearl.  The hope I have for every third party I engage with is to be able to honestly call them a business partner.  Emphasis on the word “partner.”  Julie earned that in record time and reenforced that there are still some great service providers out there.  Her knowledge, expertise, and experience are all exceptional, yet where Julie separates herself from the pack (by a wide margin) is her solutions oriented mind set and the fact that she has no hesitancy to jump down in the trenches with you and get the job done.
     

    Julie and Silver Pearl are true best in class business partners and I look forward to continuing to recommend them and their services.”

  • I highly recommend Silver Pearl to every business owner!

    “Working with Julie Dudley at Silver Pearl Inc. has been a godsend for me and for my business. I started out with no knowledge of bookkeeping, and Julie not only set up my books for me, she trained me on Quickbooks so that I could manage my business on my own.

    Every time I leave a meeting with Julie, I feel empowered as a business owner and more secure in my abilities to maintain my accounts. I highly recommend Silver Pearl to every business owner!”

    --- Angela Santucci, Santucci Music Studios

  • Our Board is delighted and we are too!

    “As a nonprofit we are required to have an annual audit. This year’s audit process was so much smoother, thanks to the work done by the team at Silver Pearl.

    With Silver Pearl’s help, we were able to create clear processes for our financial reporting as well as maintain a high level of transparency for our Board. We went into the audit with really clear financial documentation which made the whole process smoother and much less costly than in previous years.

    Julie and her team were responsive and very easy to work with and our regular bookkeeper also enjoyed working with them. They were able to tackle other supporting projects for us and the quarterly review they provide gives us a “double-check” and an extra level of comfort that everything is as it should be.

    Our Board is delighted and we are too! We highly recommend Silver Pearl’s services.”

  • Excellent partner to our business!

    “I heartily recommend Silver Pearl to all small businesses. I purchased a company and continued to use the previous owner’s process of bookkeeping, including a copy of his Quickbooks database. After a few months, it was obvious to me that I was not doing this correctly. Julie came in and reviewed my situation. She gave an estimate of the cost to set up the Quickbooks’ accounts correctly and to clean up my errors. She also gave an estimate of ongoing monthly charges for bookkeeping. She did get my Quickbooks resolved and it was very close to her estimate.

    Going forward, I have worked with both Susan and Julie. Sue has done most of our bookkeeping in just a few hours each month. Julie’s initial estimate for the cost of the monthly activity was actually somewhat high because over time, Sue has taught us how to do certain tasks in Quickbooks ourselves. It allowed us to be more efficient and save costs. Sue has integrated herself into the company and acts as a true partner. She works very well with the entire team. She is efficient and professional. Sue provides us information for controlling our business and understanding the key financial factors and has worked very well with our CPA.

    Sue has provided us a big picture view, as well as cross-checking the detail of each expense and credit card charge, thereby ensuring the accounts balance and the expenses are properly recorded.

    Silver Pearl has been an excellent partner to our business. I recommend them without hesitation.”

  • Instrumental in my changeover from server based accounting to online accounting
    Alford Law FirmI’ve been working with Julie and Gaynor at Silver Pearl for 3 years now and I am really pleased with their work. It’s such a relief to not worry about bookkeeping and to be able to delegate that task to someone I trust. They provide excellent service and are willing to answer all my questions in a timely, professional manner. They were instrumental in my changeover from server based accounting to an online accounting system. Julie worked in the technology industry before opening her own business and I’ve found that aspect of her background very useful in making decisions about software and equipment. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Silver Pearl! I’ve enjoyed working with them and would happily recommend them to anyone!

  • Everything I am looking for in a bookkeeping service
    Chiropractic Partners logo (Baldy)“I’ve been very impressed in working with the team at Silver Pearl Bookkeeping.  They are everything I am looking for in a bookkeeping service and have gone above and beyond what I was expecting, enabling us to keep our business operations running efficiently.  Susan, our assigned bookkeeper, is wonderful!  She is very organized, responsive and remains cool and level-headed at all times.  She is a very loyal and honest person and is highly involved throughout our work – in fact, she often notices things that we would miss!

    One of the systems that Silver Pearl introduced us to is Bill.com for accounts payable.  Its ease of use is incredible.  Everything I need to know about my invoices is right there in one place and it only takes me moments to review and approve the payment of bills each month.  This system is very, very efficient and perfect for a busy small business owner.  It has paid for itself many times over with saving me valuable billable time, as well as money on late fees for missed payments.  I have a renewed peace of mind with my books and highly recommend Silver Pearl.”

  • Trustworthy, professional and reliable

    Julie Dudley and the team at Silver Pearl Inc. are trustworthy, professional and reliable in overseeing my accounting books and confidential patient records. Susan and Julie have been working with me since I opened my practice and knowing I can rely on them to stay on top of the numbers and keep me informed allows me to focus on my patients and their endodontic therapy.  It’s such a relief at tax time to have everything in order and ready for my CPA. In dental school we’re taught dentistry, not how to manage the books of a dental practice. Fortunately I have Silver Pearl to handle that side of my business.

  • Julie catches every detail
    “My partners and I opened a new financial advisory practice in March 2011. Although we were saving receipts and recording transactions related to start-up costs, we were just too busy running the business to put any sort of structure in place for tracking all of the costs. Julie, with Silver Pearl Inc., came in, sorted through everything and put it in order so that it was easy to access and in a format that could be turned directly over to our CPA. She is so thorough that she even found a couple of things that we didn’t realize were missing–like the payment record for the purchase of one of our computers. She noticed we had payment records for only three computers when she saw four in our office. Julie catches every detail!”

  • Patience, encouragement and easy-to-follow directions

    “When our full-time bookkeeper left, none of us knew anything about managing the budget and financials of our church. Julie was able to jump right in, streamline existing systems and put new systems in place. She gave us step-by-step procedures and trained us to operate those systems. She explained where we stood financially and how that related back to our budget in layman’s terms, then gave us clear instructions on how to move forward. Thanks to Julie’s patience, encouragement and easy-to-follow directions, we are able to operate a fairly complex, non-profit financial system and can even run reports and explain them to others so that our staff and members understand where we stand financially, how we operate the budget and why we do it this way.”
