Our company is rooted in a shared vision of empowering businesses to achieve their goals and drive success. At the core, we strive to invest in our clients, team, and community to inspire growth and sustainability.

The professional accounting market landscape while founded in tradition, is currently experiencing change due to the accumulation of rapid technological advances over the previous decade.

Our primary role within the market is to equip clients with the tools, knowledge, resources, and expertise to become financially efficient, independent, and as a result – do better business. Specifically, we provide both services and products that create an accounting hub, to meet the needs of businesses all in one place.

What our clients say.

Conversion to QuickBooks

“I reached out to ebs because of a botched conversion to quick books that another company performed. The team at ebs gave me an estimate of how long the process would take and provided me with updates as events happened. They ended up completing the process before the date on the initial estimate, and my books were perfect when they returned them. I never want to go through a software conversion again, but if I do, ebs will perform the work.”

Training & Education

“Good to see all the applications available…Coming from medium to large size companies, QuickBooks is a new platform to me. I am trying to learn as much about what QuickBooks offers and the potential with other applications available to assist the current company I am working for. The conference was a great way to get exposed to all these things”

Bookkeeping Services

“Our company was expanding rapidly and we needed to get a better handle on our records. The owner and I attended a QB Enterprise class in 2012. We were so excited to learn what we could do. Since then we have cleaned up our chart of accounts, moved payroll in-house, started job-costing – to name a few! I am extremely pleased with the service and assistance we have received in our journey to “get a handle on our records”. I look forward to our continued business relationship.”
