     HAMMOND – The Louisiana Small Business Development Center (LSBDC) at Southeastern Louisiana University will co-sponsor with Northshore SCORE a series of three webinars designed to help individuals master QuickBooks for business. Depending upon the viewer's level of QuickBooks usage and need, each webinar is designed as a stand alone course, or can be appreciated as a series.
     Titled “QuickBooks Webinars: Everything You Need to Know to Effectively Use QuickBooks Accounting Software,” the series is based on the broad experience and knowledge that SCORE volunteers Jane and Bob Bloom have gained from using QuickBooks in their own business and from Jane’s years as a bookkeeper. Since participation is limited, advance registration is required for each seminar and is available online through
     “These are not textbook QuickBooks classes; they will show you how to make QuickBooks work for your organization,” said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Small Business Development Center.
     The first webinar, “Introduction to QuickBooks,” is scheduled Wednesday, Feb. 8, from 7 to 8 p.m. The registration fee is $10. Information will include the different versions of QuickBooks, online and desktop, and information as to which version best supports individual businesses. “The Blooms will illustrate how to get QuickBooks working quickly,” Summers said.
     The second webinar, “Optimizing QuickBooks,” is scheduled Wednesday, Feb. 22 from 7 to 8 p.m. The registration fee is $20. The Blooms will illustrate how to set up the QuickBooks system to get the most out of it. “You will learn how to optimize your Chart of Accounts and Items List plus more,” Summers said. “By optimizing QuickBooks, you are preparing it to provide you with detailed reports and analytics that will help you run your business.”
     The third webinar, “Maximizing the Power of QuickBooks,” is scheduled for Wednesday, March 15, from 7 to 8 p.m. and has a $20 registration fee. Participants will learn how to use QuickBooks to create purchase orders, receive merchandise, generate sales receipts, create and send invoices, pay bills, make deposits, do payroll, generate financial and sales reports, and more.
