The situation

As Diana Goodwin of Foundation Test Group set out to improve her company’s responsiveness to clients, she realized that the level of project management that was required was beyond her skill set. She discovered Gross Mendelsohn’s Technology Solutions Group and began working with Chris Haiss, who after getting to know the Foundation Test Group, ultimately recommended, installed and trained the company to use ComputerEase, a construction accounting and project management software package. Foundation Test Group also relies on Gross Mendelsohn for accounting and tax help.

In our client's words

“Chris Haiss of Gross Mendelsohn’s Technology Solutions Group helped form a vision that ultimately led us to significantly improved project management,” explains Diana Goodwin, president and owner of Foundation Test Group.

“Chris installed and customized ComputerEase, a construction accounting and management software package. The installation went very smoothly, and the training that Chris provided was very helpful,” recalls Diana. “Thanks to Chris, we are better project managers. She has given us the tools to manage our business in a more refined way. She not only has the expertise we needed, but she’s so personable, too. We think of Chris as ‘one of us.’”

“After meeting Chris and Gross Mendelsohn, we were able to create timely responses to both accounts payable and receivables, thus leading to a more managed profile and increased growth. ComputerEase has afforded our company the opportunity to customize client support with respect to both accounts payable and receivable while providing increased accountability, timely response and effective project tracking. Now, with in-house capabilities and the expert support provided by Chris, Foundation Test Group has much more effective management.”

“Recently we transitioned our accounting and tax work to Gross Mendelsohn,” explains Diana. “We work with Steve Ball, the firm’s Construction Group director, along with Lisa Johnson. Steve’s construction industry expertise runs very deep, which is exactly what our business needs.”

 “We are a better company because of Gross Mendelsohn’s guidance and support,” says Diana.
