"When you're competing on price...it's like a nail in your coffin every time! I need to know my numbers so I can sell my price. I need to be able to gather the data from other jobs so that if I DON'T do well on a job, I'll know where I did it wrong − and I can correct those mistakes moving forward ..."

"Info Plus Accounting and Diane Gilson run an outstanding consulting operation for construction companies. We've been working with Diane and Info Plus for the past nine months, and in that short time they have guided us thru QuickBooks upgrades, accounting and so many operational improvements that it's hard to imagine what we did without them."

"I believe there are not too many experts in QB that understand job costing to the level larger contractors need, and Diane is definitely one of them. [I was] surprised how easy most of QB is when explained by a knowledgeable person… We will now have good job cost reporting and equipment cost reporting."
