Excellent

Enjoy to learn new computer packages, to better cash flow call account balance went up. Dealer communications approved, and payments received from there dealers approved. Bookeeping was a pleasure to process and meet our dead lines. Hardest part: Finacial Manger was totally out of order, had to see an attorney to sort out the unpleasant differences.
