Pride, attention to detail, dedication and goal oriented all describe Chris Belna. Chris has strategic thinking skills, organization, economic and budgeting skills, qualities that inspired me to start my own company. When management and administration of my I.T. company gets out of control I turn to Chris Belna and A La Carte.
Chris went out of her way to create a plan that would assist my upstart organization moving forward. Coupled with her past knowledge and work ethic, I can recommend Chris as an effective attribute to your company.
When they needed their QuickBooks Online accounting corrected, after spending endless hours trying… they came to A La Carte. During one of our training sessions, Chris said. “Maintenance is cheaper than repair.”
I’ve had many business clients benefit from the personalized direction and expertise offered by the A La Carte team. They’re a great business resource!
Very Professional and reliable.
Chris Belna is a business office whiz! While she is an expert working in QuickBooks, her bookkeeping expertise is just the tip of the iceberg. Chris came to my business to help with QuickBooks, and in the process taught me several new things about transaction recording, gave me great ideas for working more efficiently in my office, and became a critical thinking partner with me. I highly recommend her services.
Chris has worked with a number of my client companies. The comments I get from them are how helpful, professional and dedicated she is to her profession. I have no hesitation in recommending her to any of the companies I work with that are looking for her skill set.
Chris helped our company change our accounting system at a time when we had just hired a new bookkeeper. She not only conformed the system to work well with our business and give me the reports I needed, she also worked issues through with a very new staff member, allaying her fears of working in a new environment and with a new accounting system. She has been accessible to my staff and checked in with me to assure things were working well. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to other businesses owners.
When our company needs information technology assistance we call Chris at A La Carte. We were provided with software consultation services & training for our staff and we have been quite pleased with the results. I found the service to be a great investment as we significantly increased productivity with very little interruption in our daily routine. Chris is very professional, extremely flexible and puts the Clients needs first.
As BrandYourself.com grew we began hiring more people, bringing in more revenue and spending more money. Keeping organized became more and more difficult and I ended up spending more time trying to stay on top of everything than doing things that actually impacted the business. I hired Chris and A La Carte, and my life immediately became easier. She worked with me until she became acquainted enough with all our systems and processes to basically take over and streamline 99% of my work for me. Whenever we have an emergency or something comes up I can simply call and know it’d be handled. I would recommend Chris and A La Carte to any business, regardless of size. It’s been one of the smartest choices I’ve made since being in business.
A La Carte’s payroll service and their handling of many aspects of business ~ Amazing! As a business owner for 19 years, changing payroll services can be so overwhelming. In trying to stay competitive with my rates for services, I was looking for other avenues to cut expenses…Payroll being one of them. After my meeting with Chris, Sue, Andrea & Kevin, I was very confident that this transition would run smoothly…and YES, with their support and knowledge I am so happy to have found this amazing company! I now have everything online at my fingertips, as well. All of my employees can access their own payroll information and that being said ~ Ala Carte would be my first option for all business solutions. Thank you to Chris and her so knowledgeable and caring Staff!!
Chris is full of energy! I have enjoyed watching as she builds her business and develops a solid service to her clients. Detail-oriented and thorough — the two words I would use to describe Chris!
If you just need a bookkeeper, someone to mindlessly post entries to your general ledger software, then do not hire Chris Belna. However, if you need a critical thinker, someone to organize your business and help you solve problems that also excels at bookkeeping, Chris and A La Carte are your best choice.
When I hired A La Carte, I got more that a bookkeeper, I got a part-time CFO.
Chris is one of the most honest, hard-working professionals that I have ever worked with. Chris listens to her client’s needs and then takes the time to fully understand how to address those needs in a systematic approach, which in turn provides a concise and strategized solution. I would recommend Chris to any company looking to improve their internal processes and communications. As we have all heard time and time again, a fresh set of eyes can usually find what we didnt know we were looking for or even looking at.
My firm has counted on the bookkeeping services for years, in addition to handling our yearly FINRA registration renewal requirements. They deal with our accountant at tax time & frees me up to concentrate on my clients & their needs.
