expression and inspirational images in America. With its teardrop-eyed

in 1997, Precious Moments made the business decision to update their
accounting system and chose Great Plains Business Solutions as their
provider of choice. They were referred to a VAR for installation
of the Great Plains system and to perform a data conversion from
NxTrend. Unfortunately, this VAR's implementation failed when the

successful implementation. The IS Manager in charge of the project,
John Hill, was "extremely impressed" with the ability of Accountant's
Edge to solve complex problems in a short period of time and develop
elegant solutions for his company's accounting needs. "Accountant's
Edge brings a blend of CPA knowledge and technology experience to

Hill summarizes: "I very much appreciate their depth of knowledge,
their ability to manage complex issues, and their consultative approach
to solving problems."
