Precious Moments
John Hill, IS Manager

PRECIOUS MOMENTS is the original-and most enduring- collection of social expression and inspirational images in America. With its teardrop-eyed children and distinctive color palette, PRECIOUS MOMENTS offers consumers a tangible way to commemorate life's important milestones and daily triumphs including marriage, the birth of a child, or a new friendship. Dominating the $21 billion gift and collectibles market, PRECIOUS MOMENTS has been the #1 selling brand in this category for the past 15 years.

Back 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 system crashed and they were unable to bring it back.

Accountant's Edge came to the rescue, stabilized their system, and executed a 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 the table, enabling them to troubleshoot and solve problems quickly and save me a great deal of time and money."

Since this first solution, Precious Moments has relied on Accountants Edge for ongoing consulting services to help grow and expand their accounting functionality. These services include installing additional modules to provide more efficiency and automation, enhancing their network infrastructure, and establishing Citrix remote communications to provide significant cost savings over their previous private line connections.

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