We founded Summit CPA in February of 2002 in Fort Wayne, Indiana with the focus on taking a non-traditional approach to accounting. We did not want clients to be hesitant when they called because they were afraid of the end result – A BILL.
Here's why we're different:
Oh, and another thing. We utilize technology to its fullest.
Many CPA firms are stuck in the past, utilizing old technology and services that really don’t help the customer grow their business. Their focus is primarily on historical financial statements and tax returns. At Summit CPA, we utilize the latest technology to ensure that the client’s experience is always first-rate. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to log into your QuickBooks file, anytime and anywhere? You can at Summit CPA. That is just one of the many ways Summit CPA uses technology to deliver a first-class service.
Because of the way we utilize technology, our entire 401K Audits are performed without ever stepping foot at our client's location. This was nearly impossible five years ago. Why do most CPA firms have to spend countless hours interrupting the day-to-day activity of their clients? The answer is simple, they don’t. They're just stuck in the past. With the use of Web Portals, E-mails, and GotoMeetings, we can perform the audits anywhere.
Over 80% of our clients are not even located in Indiana.
Our consultants can perform all of the back office functions of an accounting department as well as the high-end functions of a CFO, miles away from the client’s place of business – why not? This affords us the possibility of working with companies all across the United States. We have clients as far east as Rhode Island, as far south as Texas, and as far west as California.
By taking a non-traditional approach to accounting, Summit CPA has undergone extreme growth since our humble beginnings. While traditional accounting firms have seen level or declining growth over the past 5 years, we have seen annual growths in excess of 15 percent in each of those years.
Do clients like the non-traditional approach? We think they do.
