Archie

Official Greeter Archie belongs to Katy and serves as our official greeter and unofficial guard dog. He is almost 12 but you’d never guess it by seeing his spunk and energetic personality. He loves people but can’t stand other dogs! He never fails to bring a smile to everyone’s’ face as they come in and he rushes to greet the new person he clearly thinks is there only to see him.  Beware of incessant kisses and attention! He truly is loved by all.


I’m very impressed that Eclipse would take the time to learn our program and help us with the everyday bookkeeping. Also that you and your office always answer the phone and always take the time to answer questions it seems like at any time. You even help me out when you are visiting relatives in Bozeman!! It’s very nice being able to talk to my CPA about all aspects of my business and to discuss options for now and the future. Katy, I think that you are an irreplaceable part of the West Glacier KOA team. Thank you for all you do.

If you are a small business owner like I am maybe you can relate to how my life used to be. I worked 12 hour days and spent weekends entering bills, paying bills, paying taxes, figuring out payroll, etc. That usually ate up 4 hours or more of either Saturday or Sunday and I’d often worry that I missed something. It was stressful and I was using my rare “free” time still working. That was my life for too long.

Katy Croft had been my accountant for years and encouraged me to let her take some of that workload off my shoulders so my life could be better.  Initially I was skeptical. I am a hands-on person that has difficulty trusting other people to do things I can do and I generally like to do things myself.  Plus, I actually like crunching numbers and didn't want to feel totally out of control of my finances. But something had to change. I began by turning over payroll and all the associated expense responsibilities to her and immediately discovered that it saved me several hours per month (not to mention that I didn’t have to worry that I missed something).
Over a period of a few months I began giving more and more to Eclipse. Now they takes care of all of my payroll including hosting Quickbooks (so I never have to worry about a losing my files), taxes, entering invoices, posting deposits, bank statements, bill paying, everything. Weekly I remotely access my Quickbooks file where I can see exactly where my books stand and pick and choose what bills to pay and contact them and it's done. What used to take me 4 hours per week literally takes me about 10 minutes. I'm in the fifth year of freedom from my books controlling my free time and I completely trust Eclipse and will continue to use them as long as I own a business.

Just wanted to let you know how happy I am to be working with Annie; I’m really impressed how she responds to my emails and how quickly she gets deposits into QuickBooks.
