If you run QuickBooks week after week, year after year, your QBW data file gets pretty big. (Press the F2 key in QuickBooks with your company open to see how big your file is.)

What if it gets so big that performance starts to suffer? Or you start to experience errors or intermittent problems in the software?

Two different QuickBooks users recently had that experience, and sent their files in to us to be supercondensed.

What is supercondensing? It is a process where we remove all closed transactions from a file prior to a cut off date of your choosing. We leave all the transactions ahead of the cut off date, and we leave open or pending transactions regardless of their date.

The end result is a file that is quite small and fast compared to the original.

We often schedule these on weekends, so that there is no downtime on the client’s side.

Here is what a couple of our clients said about their experience in having us condense their file this way (quoted by permission):

“We are very pleased. We ended up with a smaller file size than estimated. Very convenient for a business b/c I sent the file on Friday @ 5:00 pm and it was returned and reloaded Sunday afternoon. We were up and running on Monday w/o any problems.”
— Vicki Hilliard, Patio Supply

“AccountingUsers did exactly as they promised. We sent our file to them on a Friday and received our file back on Saturday afternoon. I downloaded the new file, installed it and was up and running Monday morning with absolutely no down time. Our Quickbooks is so much faster now. I wish I had used their service much sooner!” — Lynn Wrinkle, Blade Energy Partners

Weekend service for supercondensing is available for no extra charge.
