We have used North Star Ventures technicians and professionals internally, and referred them to multiple clients for network and accounting software system projects. They are very professional and service oriented, and they have a deep technical knowledge of both the QuickBooks and Sage 50 accounting products. Steve was very helpful recently when we upgraded our internal file servers, and he was able to configure multiple versions of each product to run smoothly. They are particularly knowledgeable on networks, small businesses, and accounting processes and procedures. We have worked with Tom and his team for over 20 years and would strongly recommend him and the North Star Ventures team for small business accounting system services.

North Star Ventures has advised and serviced our company for over 15 years. Initially, they setup and configured the Sage 50 accounting software. Five years ago, they helped us migrate to Quickbooks Enterprise. Tom and his team were extremely knowledgeable of and skilled in both software products as well as the general technology required. They directed us in streamlining our operations and providing accurate and timely management reports. We strongly recommend North Star Ventures, Inc. for similar projects.

We are an engineering firm in New England. North Star Ventures evaluated our business needs for accounting software and a time and billing system. They converted our systems to Sage 50 (formerly Pachtree) and Timeslips to service the specialized client billing requirements to manage our clients. This helped streamline our business with our 25-30 professional staff. Beyond the conversion, North Star Ventures helped to ensure that we used proper document storage and backup using scanning technology.
North Star Ventures kept our expectations and communicated any changes in an effective manner. We will certainly use them as our needs arise in the future.

As a wholesale and retail sports clothing business operating on two different platforms, we needed an integrated accounting system that included Point of Sale and inventory management. North Star Ventures implemented software upgrade and converted our systems to an integrated QuickBooks Enterprise and QuickBooks Point of Sale system. The software and accounting project was done in conjunction with a major network upgrade. North Star Ventures was always reachable and responsible for their work. Their recommendations, improvements, and execution were invaluable to the conversion.

North Andover Country Club is a member owned country club with dining, golf, tennis, paddle and pool facilities. North Star Ventures restructured our Chart of Accounts in QuickBooks to simplify the monthly reporting package to the Board of Governors. They also helped us migrate to digital storage of our documents and set up remote access for our managers. In addition, they designed and implemented our Local Area Network in an old building.
