Keith Gormezano - Intuit Premier Reseller
My QuickBooks Certifications
I am an Advanced Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor with 47 five star reviews and one 4.9. Currently, I am ranked #1-2 on the Intuit Find a ProAdvisor site for Seattle or Greater Seattle depending on your zip code.
I am certified for QuickBooks desktop for years 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007 which includes Intuit's PC, Simple Start, Pro, and Premier (including Contractor, Professional Services, Nonprofit, Retail, and Manufacturing and Wholesaling), Online, and Mac versions.
I was one of the first ProAdvisors certified for all three versions (Simple Start, Essentials, and Online Plus) of QuickBooks Online when Intuit announced that this certification would be available in 2012.
I also have voluntarily obtained additional certification in Intuit's Point of Sale (versions 12.0, 10.0, 8.0, and 6.0) software for retail operations and Enterprise Solutions (ES) software (17.0, 15.0, 11.0, 9.0, and 7.0) for mid-market companies.
In case you are wondering, Intuit did not offer certification tests for the versions (POS: 9.0 and 7.0 and ES: 10.0 and 8.0) in between the Point of Sale and Enterprise versions listed above.
In 2014, 2015, and 2016, Insightful Accountant (formerly Intuitive Accountant) named me one of the top 100 QuickBooks ProAdvisors. The process started with a call for nominations, of which 270 were received from 65,000 eligible candidates, then a scoring based on multiple factors such as current ProAdvisor status, number and quality of Intuit certifications (I have all of them including the difficult to obtain Advanced Certification which less than 11% of my peers have earned as it requires being certified in the last three years of QuickBooks products), years certified in Intuit products, and number and rating of client reviews and finally an open vote in which over 2,000 of my peers voted. After all of this was completed, Intuitive Accountant staff compiled the scores and I was one of the 100 who earned this award including three others from the Greater Seattle area.
I am also one of 750 Sleeter Group Certified QuickBooks Consultants Sleeter Group Certified Consultants have been trained and tested on QuickBooks assuring that they have the knowledge and skills required to help your small- to medium-sized business. Each Consultant's profile indicates the accounting services they perform and the products they support. There are only a dozen in Western Washington. I can also provide bookkeeper, QuickBooks, and controller tests at no charge to my clients to use to test prospective employees.
I currently have QuickBooks Premier Accountant 2016, Enterprise Accountant 16.0, Point of Sale Multi-store 12.0 also known as 2015, 11.0 also known as 2013 and earlier versions and Quicken Home and Business 2015 on my computer and Quicken 2013 on my laptop and have been reading blogs or attending webinars on using the former three. I also have downloaded QuickBooks for the Mac 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010 and attended webinars on how to use QuickBooks for the Mac better for my clients.
I also have the Accountant's version (which is a higher and more useful version of Pro and Premier) for 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007 versions as well as Point of Sale 11.0, 10.0, 9.0, 8.0, and 6.0, and Enterprise 15.0, 14.0, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, and 7.
I also have QuickBooks Pro 2006 that I use to convert my PC clients using antique, err older (2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999, 6.0 and earlier) products in XP, Windows 2000, Windows 98SE, Windows 98, and Windows 95 to more current QuickBooks software versions running in Windows XP, Vista, 7, or 8 (my experience is that one needs to use 2006 as a bridge from 2005 or earlier).
I like using the new Quicken 2015 mobile app to record my personal and business expenses when I am in the field on my Android dumbphone and iPad or Android tablet when I am traveling.
