Before Supporting Strategies, I was handling tasks like invoicing residents and printing checks each week. Supporting Strategies has taken those things off my hands, which has enabled me to focus on growing our businesses.
I like knowing how our practice is performing on a daily basis, and Supporting Strategies has allowed me to keep tabs on our financial health.
