What Our Clients Say

Jane Houle has been very instrumental in assisting first with transition to the Sage software, helping us make sure that it is set up properly, and helped us develop reports that contains the information that we need for efficiency purposes. She is patient and has a wonderful personality. I would recommend her to anyone in need of Sage or consulting services for their finance department. ~Betty Sanchez-Azadeh, Sr. Director of Operations, Erie Neighborhood House

Group reporting is crucial as we have so many different types of funding and expense buckets; it is important to have the ability to segregate them in an organized variable fashion then report on them as needed. MIP and 1st Choice Advisors helped us solve that problem. ~Beth Smith, Vice President, Finance and Facilities, Crider Health Center
