Rachel

Before [using Patriot's accounting software], every single year I had a huge stack of receipts that I had to type by hand for my expenses. But now, I sync up my bank account, and it’s all there. It’s a lot easier than a spreadsheet of teeny-tiny receipts and going, “Oh wait, did I put that bill in?”

Rachel Beard, The Harmony Garden Music Center

Megan

Patriot has given us the ability to cost code all of our expenses through the accounting software. Without it, I would be spending hours upon hours creating spreadsheets that don’t run reports.

The software is simple. The reports are sufficient and easily exported. For a staff of 1-25 or so, you cannot beat the value. I had great experience with their service team. Patriot took us from our first employee up until we had a major expansion and went to 40 employees.
