“We gained back three out of every four hours we used to spend on Amazon bookkeeping. It helped us lower client bookkeeping costs, advise clients on strategy instead of just entering data, and increase our profits.”
Exponent Management is a bookkeeping and financial advisory company. They handle day-to-day business tasks and data entry, as well as new company setups, payroll, reports, budgeting, and forecasting.
When Exponent Management was just starting out, the program for Amazon reconciling that Esti Szegedin, CEO & Founder, used was clunky: It took forever, needed hours of manual entry, was super tedious, but the results were still never perfect.
On top of that, there was the mystery of Amazon fees.
Bookkeeping basics were swallowing all their time, and there was no time for looking at the bigger picture — and seeing how to build more profits.
Unhappy with the hours and hours her team was losing, Esti did some research and discovered Connectbooks.
Exponent Management went with the premium plan that offered per SKU sync in QuickBooks. It had all the features they needed to ensure their clients got the clearest picture of their business’ finances. There were reports for everything they want to know. Whether that was exact inventory on any given day, a summary of costs and profits, or a particular item’s fees.
Plus, Connectbooks blew Esti away with their customer service. Right from day one.
And it wasn’t just a we-wow-you-with-the-start-and-then-it-falls-apart deal. Any time Exponent Management had an issue, they just called and the Connectbooks staff took care of it.
Connectbooks also empowered Exponent Management to build their clients’ revenue with the knowledge of how Amazon fees work.
With clear reports, fantastic support, and Amazon demystified Exponent Management was ready to step up their Amazon bookkeeping services.
Exponent Management gained back about three out of every four hours they used to spend on clearing up client’s Amazon inventory. With Connectbooks they were able to lower client bookkeeping costs, boost client businesses instead of just entering data, and increase their own profits.
Plus, with a clear understanding of Amazon’s fee structure, they were able to advise their clients on where to adjust for profits, instead of just pointing out when there’s a loss.
