De-Clutter Your Weekends

Susan Lovallo of Clutter Solutions says, “Kenbar is the best! As a business owner it is imperative to have a solid support team. Bob Kennedy and Kenbar has been part of my team for almost 10 years. For my last computer conversion Bob was on the phone with my tech person for over an hour on a Saturday morning getting my ACT! up and running on my new machine. It is this type of dedication and responsiveness to his clients that makes Kenbar outstanding. He is also always looking for ways to save me money on upgrades and support. Using ACT! has enabled me to keep my database organized which has been essential for marketing and customer relations. I highly recommend ACT! and Kenbar!”

Kenbar has your back!

For years, every year, we were ordering direct from Act. About 5 years ago, when the sales-rep we had been ordering from was going to leave Act, he recommended that we order through Kenbar Solutions going forward. This has proved to be a big advantage!

We decided to do our Act upgrade on a Sunday in order to have the least impact on our Act users. We ran into a problem but we were able to call Kenbar and resolve that problem on a Sunday afternoon, as opposed to waiting until Act opened at 8:30AM on Monday.

Kenbar Solutions offers virtual 24/7 support vs Act’s 12/5. This is a great help as it’s always best to make changes to our Act system during off-hours.

Kenbar also helps us use Act effectively with their knowledge of what Act can do as well as what would be best handled with an Add-on.

Why I chose Kenbar

We, at Village West Publishing, needed a new database badly. It was back in 2005 that I began to research database options and present them to my bosses. At the time I had worked for my company for a year and their Contact Management System, a very old version of Act, had been tweaked by my predecessors to within an inch it’s life. I looked at tons of databases, both off the shelf and custom varieties, and all were either too expensive or didn’t “fit” our business. The research was shelved again for many more years until I took a look at the new Act, which unlike the old one, was a true database and not just a Contact Management System. I convinced my bosses that Act would be the path of least resistance since the learning curve would be minimal (they were already used to OLD Act) and the conversion would not be as drastic as say going to CRM or Sugar etc.

In 2014 we finally decided to pursue the new version of ACT. I called two different support companies and both sounded great. The one that won out was Kenbar Solutions and they won out because:

1. Bob was local (East Coast) although he handles the whole country since he has a West Coast Presence too.

And

2. He was extremely responsive.

I downloaded the trial software and “played with it” then finally purchased the new one in 2014. Bob is incredible in that he takes calls and questions all the time.

I recently attended the Act Training Cruise and learned many important things that will help our business be more productive and spend less time doing “paperwork” and more time selling. I learned about add-ons that make ACT do the things we need it to do with greater efficiency and speed. I look forward to continuing to work with Bob as I migrate a 2nd database to the new Act and put his training to good use.

It certainly didn’t hurt any that the training was done onboard a fantastic cruise ship combining business and pleasure in the most enjoyable way! I would recommend Bob and Kenbar Solutions to anyone and suggest that there is no better way to learn than in an environment as impressive as that was.

Always Available!

As a Certified QuickBooks Advisor since 1999 and an Authorized Intuit Reseller since 2007, I have been working with Bob Kennedy of Kenbar Solutions for most of those years. His pricing is the best and he is always available when a question arises or I need to walk through any type of situation or scenario regarding my Act data.

Working with Act and having Bob as my Act partner has allowed me to focus on marketing and selling QuickBooks software, payroll and merchant services without losing touch with who my clients and prospects really are. Bob has saved me many hours of work, and we all know time is money!

In addition to helping me with Act, I have found his recommendation for me to use Handheld Contact for my iPhone to be spot on.

I highly recommend him as a trusted and reliable Act consultant who will help you make better use of your Act data, ultimately leading to better relationships with your clients.
