In 2006, Extension Engine was a $1.2 million business offering outsourced software development services. Fast-forward to 2019, and the company now focuses on creating custom online learning experiences and is projecting $15 million in revenue for the year.
Supporting Strategies has been there every step of the way, serving as the bookkeeping arm for Extension Engine's U.S. operations. We handle everything from data entry to financial analysis, providing accurate, up-to-date financials to guide leadership's strategic decisions.
Furqan Nazeeri, Partner at Extension Engine, explains that the business has undergone major changes in its bookkeeping over the past 13 years. "We've switched to new systems for time tracking and for expense tracking, and we've moved from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online," he says. "Throughout those and other transitions, Supporting Strategies has been great. They've always been flexible and always managed to figure things out."
Bookkeeping Services That Scale With Business Growth
Lori Kunkel, Managing Director of Supporting Strategies | Southern New Hampshire, has worked with Extension Engine since 2012. Over that time, she and her colleagues have automated a number of formerly manual processes to improve bookkeeping efficiencies.
Kunkel and her team, says Nazeeri, "have consistently found ways to become more and more productive, and we've yet to outgrow their knowledge base. They really know their stuff."
As Extension Engine got increasingly involved in online learning, Kunkel was tasked with analyzing the performance of its new and legacy divisions. Her insights, notes Nazeeri, helped leadership determine the company's strategic direction.
Having partnered with Supporting Strategies for so long, Nazeeri has come to think of us as indispensable members of the Extension Engine team. And we've earned his complete trust — an essential element in any bookkeeper-client relationship. "I know they're always acting in our best interest," he says.
