CenterPoint Accounting - Comments from Sharon at Chase City Tastee-Freez

By Stephanie Elsen

Red Wing Software recently received feedback from Sharon at Chase City Tastee-Freez. Wow, amazing comments and much appreciated!

Sharon has owned and operated Tastee-Freez Restaurants in Chase City and Wylliesburg, Virginia since 1985. In addition to being an experienced business owner, Sharon is experienced in managing accounting systems, having used many different accounting programs since the 1970s. Sharon has been using CenterPoint Accounting and Payroll since 2009. Here’s what Sharon has to say about CenterPoint!

“CenterPoint Accounting is extremely easy to use! When I purchased the software, I took all of the “Getting Started” online webinars Red Wing Software offers. These online courses offer extraordinary teaching, and I felt comfortable working in the program after completing them”

“I love the fact that I can correct a mistake, if I find one. For example, if I am balancing the checkbook and find an error, I can go right in and fix the mistake from there. Or if I put something in the wrong account, I can easily go back in and fix it, right from the report I am viewing. My accountant loves CenterPoint too. When he asks for any report at all, I can go into CenterPoint and easily get the information he has requested.”

“Payroll is also very simple, and I can complete payroll in one-third of the time it took with my previous payroll program. I appreciate the fact that I can reprint checks with the same check number, for example in the case that a check gets jammed in the printer.”

“Red Wing Software’s support is great, and if I ever have questions, I can just give them a call or else go online and find an answer. All of the updates to the program are fabulous and I have found them very useful.”

“I just love CenterPoint, and I will never change software! I recommend the software to other businesses whenever I can. It’s one of the best accounting programs I have ever used, and I have been doing accounting since the 1970s.”
