About Our Presenter


FirmTamer was founded over 25 years ago by a CPA who recognized the challenges of growing an accounting firm. After years of experience, it became clear that while the accounting work itself was not the real challenge - running the business and managing its growth was.

This in-house time and billing software was born out of that struggle to better manage the firm. It later evolved into a hub for the firm's operations, helping to prioritize tasks, capture billable time, streamline invoicing, and better evaluate staff performance.

Today, FirmTamer is adapting this software into a cloud-based solution to help other CPA firms manage their growth.
