As an engineer, I often get accused of acting "German." Well I am. And my work requires that kind of attention to detail along with focus and an unwillingness to give up. And I do like to have all my "ducks in a row." That is, I like to be efficient and improve my practices. Unfortuantely, the accounting part of my practice has not been up to the same standards I set for my engineering work.
Fortunately, after an extensive search, I have found a program that integrates accounting, business management, and practice managment. It has projects, time management, document management, cloud access on my laptop or cell phone, payroll, credit card processing. It has an electronic timesheet that actually works and can be customized to the way I work. One of the best aspects is that everything is integrated - I only need to enter information one time. And it has a reasonable price.
I am currently training on my new Practice Management software and expect to deploy June 2016. I should be able to improve my ADMIN efficiency by 3 times. That means, more time for production work and better service for my Clients. And, more time for fly fishing!

I enjoyed working with Darrin on this project. Really nice design and comfortable floor plan.
New 3600 ft2 timber framed building with wood panel shear walls and Strong-Wall Panels designed to minimize horizontal drift and prevent damage to brittle architectural components in earthquakes and wind.
One challange was the cathedral roof over the foyer supported by steel tube columns with marbel cladding and abutting a stone floor. This required column support connections that the Contractor could adjust in the field.
