Here’s What Our Customers Are Saying

Leigh Ann has been such an integral part of the Saponetti team I cannot imagine where we would be without her.

She took the time to understand our startup so she could cater her services directly to our needs. Leigh Ann keeps us organized and on track allowing us to focus our energies on serving our customers and building our business. Highly recommend her services!

“Neil has been my accountant for years; and, like many entrepreneurs before me, I’ve managed the cash flow of my businesses using an intricate self-baked spreadsheet (aka the “bane” of Neil’s existence). When kidding turned to begging, I finally took his advice to find a bookkeeper that could migrate my spreadsheet into proper accounting software. Finding Intelligent Business Services took me 3 solid attempts (and the last one made even more work to fix). Leigh Ann’s attention to detail rivaled my own, and even Neil said ‘she knows what she’s doing’ – that was huge. She had no problem with complex Interco transfers, currency exchanges & tax implications of running a company with SR&ED claims, a partnership, a payroll and stock trading transactions; a second company with patent applications; and a third, in the MSP business with a growing client base. Leigh Ann is extremely capable; experienced in the black arts of tax filing and she has a seemingly endless reserve for research into all things financial. You will not go wrong with Leigh Ann as your virtual partner.”

“We got our first accounting system, Accpac, after a short while of being in business. As the owner of a small company, I wore many hats, but computers and accounting packages was not my strength…finding new products and suppliers and selling to existing and new customers was where the growth of the company would be. Leigh Ann was charged with the task.Read MoreAt the time we were just starting out with no extra money for training her on the new Accpac system, so she just went about figuring it out on her own…a very daunting task…but she did it – well! That trait was invaluable to me. It took the pressure off me so I could go about growing the business. Every new piece of technology we purchased along the way went to her to decipher for us.
I would recommend Leigh Ann Royal whole-heartedly as a valuable asset to any company.  She brings a problem-solving skill with her that is as natural to her as breathing, and she loves the challenge.” Read Less

I thought I’d email to just to get a couple of questions answered on the software. I got much more in a friendly 30 minute chat. Leigh Ann asked some good questions which helped me to set things up better, and also about whether I was properly recording expenses. I will not call anyone else if I have more questions.

Leigh Ann was able to interpret and understand everything required for a set of accounting books. She applied her skill set to identifying and assessing problem areas and promptly addressed them, knowing what to recommend. During this time she asked pertinent questions and processed the answers with a diligent work ethic, returning to me the files and adhering to confidentiality. I recommend her services to people looking for a solution, or a quick-fix. I was pleased with the outcome.

It was a pleasure to work with Leigh Ann for many years in her role as Credit Analyst while I was in the sales department. She had a balanced approach to accounts receivable and the needs of the business which led to the ability to take on challenges with minimized risk.

I contacted Leigh Ann when I needed to develop an artist’s website. I was soon to be exhibiting artwork to a gallery for the first time and also needed solo art show posters and invitations for the event. It was a very stressful time, but Leigh Ann made the process easy by quickly organizing my thoughts and ideas into tangible working formats, which led to the creation of everything I had envisioned. She was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her services!
