“Artiffex has provided a great platform for investment bookkeeping, it was definitely worth making the change to an automated solution,” said Yau “It helps to save time and reduce data entry error, allowing us to spend more time on special and unusual transactions and provide a more qualitative work to our clients.”
For over 60 years, Fuller Landau has provided a broad spectrum of accounting and tax services for private businesses, high net worth families, and the advisors who serve them. Today, the firm brings its team of over 130 experts to work with clients in the real estate, food and beverage, manufacturing and distribution, healthcare, IT, entertainment and communications industries.
“As the firm examined its operational efficiencies, we realized that we were spending a significant amount of time in investment bookkeeping, some of which was not recoverable,” said Ricky Yau, CPA, CA, Manager at Fuller Landau. “The firm also kept large amounts of data in Excel, but which required the constant review of formulas to determine if they were still working.”
