Industry Experience & Expertise
We provided solutions for clients across many industries, including business and professional services, property management and real estate companies, regulated environments, non-profits, and more.
Property Management/Real Estate
Our company was founded 28 Years ago. Recently we transitioned to a cloud-based general ledger system and were able to establish a virtual office environment for our staff. Part of our business plan was to outsource out financial reporting (accounting). For the last 8 months, we have been working with Sugarcreek Consulting as our bookkeeping/virtual controller provider. The results have been excellent. We would highly recommend Sugarcreek.Bill Wolfe
