“Tax returns actually take up the least amount of work for us,” explains Fucito, correcting a perception that accountants work like crazy around tax season and spend the rest of the year on vacation.
Fucito’s office provides a full-service model to clients. It’s aim is to make clients understand how they can run their business better, become more efficient, and – most importantly – succeed.
“We take the time to know and understand our clients. We also have an educational component. We teach people to fish rather than do the fishing for them. We offer a CFO model for our business clients – we don’t just take their work and do it for them. We can look at the foundation of how a business is operating – its policies and procedures. We can help them develop those if necessary. We can also train the client’s own bookkeepers, if necessary. There is a lot of interaction and communication.”
Timesheets Help With Making Decisions
With such attention to detail, it is important for financial planner Fucito to also understand his own business. That’s why his accounting firm uses Timewatch’s time tracking system as their accountant timesheet. Time® is their accounting timesheet entry system, it’s intuitive and easy to learn for end users, but with the flexibility, accuracy, controls, and reporting an accounting practice demands. Among many other features, it can provide an overview of where your business is spending its resources and how long your employees are spending on various projects and clients, and allow you to drill down to the details when needed.
“Time® helps with our decision making process – whether we retain a client or offer up additional opportunities to help them to improve their business,” says Fucito.
“We used to track time in Excel. That was cumbersome, but Timewatch is much, much better. The system is a lot more interactive and easy-to-use. Changing a system after so many years is never easy but it is not even questionable that Timewatch is definitely an advantage for the business. It helps us make informed decisions”
There’s something in common, right there. The Accounting Offices of Tom Fucito helps its clients sleep better at night. It turns out that Timewatch removes stress and helps improve that sleep, too.
