Accountants CPA Hartford: William Brighenti, CPA: A New Kind of Accounting Firm Opens Its Doors in Hartford, Connecticut

Started Oct 19, 2009 0 Replies

William Brighenti, CPA, and Carole Romatis, Quickbooks bookkeeper, have teamed up to form a new kind of accounting firm: Accountants CPA Hartford. What’s so different about it? Rather than operating out of a plush expensive office in downtown Hartford, Connecticut, it operates out of a small office in Berlin, a suburb of Connecticut’s capital, and relies largely on electronic technology to offer its accounting services. “By using remote access and webconference rooms (featuring whiteboards, webcams, microphones, Skype, and chat)”, Carole Romatis asserts, “Accountants CPA Hartford can provide services to clients more efficiently and effectively.

Moreover, they are relieved of the expense of the public accountants' traveling time and automobile expenses, dramatically reducing their accounting bills.”Carole believes that since this is the age of information, accounting firms need to update their technology and their way of conducting business in order to make their services more affordable, timely, effective, and efficient. Both Carole and Bill feel that remote access services and fully equipped webconference rooms add an immediency to the accessibility of the firm's services and improve, rather than lessen, personal service. “By using remote access and webconference rooms with webcams, microphones, whiteboards, Skype, and chat, we are now virtually available 24/7. Equally as important, this advanced electronic technology lowers our costs of conducting our operations, thereby allowing us to charge fees one-half of those charged by other accountants in our area. It’s a win-win for us and our clients.”“What’s equally…Continue
