“The level of knowledge is amazing. As an accountant, I ask tough questions and my bookminder always has the answer. They know their accounting.”
City Theatre has been described asPittsburgh’s most adventurous theatre. City Theatre’s mission is to provide an artistic home for the development and production of contemporary plays that engage a diverse audience.
As Director of Finance, Jan Ripper appreciates that Bookminders is conscientious. “Every transaction in the organization crosses my desk—every revenue item and every expenseitem. If there’s a single item that’s not accounted for, my bookminder let’s me know immediately and we fix it. No issue ever gets pushed off to the year end.”
Jan really appreciates that the service is consistent. “The weekly visits work very well for us. I know when my bookminder is coming in each week and it keeps me on track.”
The caliber of employee that Bookminders hires is a great value to the City Theater. “My bookminder’s level of knowledge is amazing. As an accountant, I ask tough questions and my bookminder always has the answer. They know their accounting.”
The year-end process with the accountant runs smoothly. “Bookminders is a big help with our annual audit. They have all the information in order, just the way the auditors need to see it.”
Jan began using Bookminders to do the accounting in 2003, while she handles the finance functions. “When we hired Bookminders, I desperately needed backup. In all small non-profits there is a severe lack of staff, as this is an ongoing problem, Bookminders gives me peace of mind.”
