What People Are Saying About CAMP...

CAMP gives my secretary instant access without calling a QuickBooks Advisor and maybe setting something up for the next day. That gets expensive: an accountant's time is expensive. From a cost standpoint and a time standpoint, it helps her find the answers to the questions a lot quicker. It's helped me understand QuickBooks a little more so when I hand off work, I know what I'm asking for.

Scott Collins, Collins Concrete

I have found CAMP to be useful and beneficial and as time progresses and skills improved, the dependency of CAMP has become less required.

Keep up the excellent work.

Ron Foster, Contender Fire Sprinkler

The videos are great; the handouts are good. Thanks for being a positive force for good!

Roy Skeen, 55 Builders, Inc.

CAMP is really reasonably priced. It’s cheaper than an hourly rate.

From an end user position, I’ve done the “I don’t have time”, I’ve done that. I’ve done every excuse you can possibly imagine. This is the first time I’ve run through training in a sequential way.

The classes cover A LOT of things that take you into a different mindset of how to look at QuickBooks. Those already are a ton of savings. I’ve made lots of notes from these classes. Some of this is stuff I’ve already known, but I see it now in a different way. It’s like reading a book a second time, you see something stand out when you read it again.

CAMP eliminates a lot of valuable time. It puts you in a position when Diane talks to you, you’re able to save yourself time because…

1. You understand the terms that she’s introducing to you.
2. You start to understand your real need. What would normally take you hours, you can now narrow it down and say I already understand that part, now I need help with this.
