Military families often have difficulty connecting with loved ones while troops are out in the field serving our nation. That is exactly why the non-profit organization, Cell Phones for Soldiers (CPFS), was established. Since 2004, free communication tools have been provided to our service men and women abroad in order to help connect them with their families.
Over the last nine years, this organization has helped to provide 181 million minutes of talk time to our soldiers. They mail about 12,000 calling cards each week, and have recycled nearly 11 million cell phones! What’s more remarkable, is CPFS was founded by Robbie & Brittany Bergquist when they were only 12 & 13 years old, and is still operated almost entirely by the Bergquist family from Massachusetts. At this years annual Technology Day event, Ledgerwood Associates, Inc. will be an official collection center for Cell Phones for Soldiers. Sponsor a heart-felt call yourself by donating a gently used cell phone at the Technology Day event, and LAI will deliver to it Cell Phones for Soldiers.
If for some reason you can’t make it to Tech Day, you can still donate online.
Designed for the high-volume needs of service and specialty companies so they’re able to operate more efficiently and improve the quality of their customer service, enterprise delivers distinct advantages and benefits that will resonate with key roles across an organization, including:
Accounting Managers: The centralized database makes financial reporting streamlined and easy.
IT Managers: Based on Microsoft SQL, updating and administration are centralized and scalable.
Service Managers: Use the state-of-the-art dispatch board to match the right technician to jobs.
Owners: Superior integration, functionality and access to information to manage the bottom line.

Sage Timberline Office users have enjoyed Pay-Per-Minute support services for years now but the times, they are a changing.
So if you are used to paying by the minute for phone support please take note that Sage Timberline Support will soon end that service.
As of April 10, 2009 Sage will NO longer offer Pay-Per-Minute support calls. After April 10, if you need to make support calls you will need to upgrade your current support plan to either Essential Care or Premier Care phone support plans.
Moving to the next level, EssentialCare, means you will receive unlimited phone support. If you do not wish to upgrade then feel free as always, to give me or Daren a call. We are always glad to help!
One Final Note…
There is a change of address you will also want to jot down.
As of April 1, 2009 Support Renewal Payments MUST be sent to…

At the January 2009, International Roofing Expo at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, I spoke with several owners of roofing companies about the software they use for cost accounting, estimating and project management. In a couple of the breakout training sessions, there was a general agreement that Sage Timberline Accounting is recognized as the best cost accounting software for medium to large roofing companies. This made me happy since I represent Sage Timberline. There was also alot of rumblings about consolidating all of the various softwares into a single integrated software that can handle processes of a typical roofing company. For example, roofing companies need Customer Relationship and Sales Tracking software which is commonly referred to as (CRM software). CRM software is more important to Residential Roofing companies opposed to Commercial Roofing companies. These companies would love a solution that allowed the CRM software to track and create sales proposals and then flow seamlessly into the Cost Accounting software if the work is awarded. From here, the accounting department can buy the materials, manage the job and bill the client.
