The Challenge

Explosive growth led to the need for updated accounting processes.

With growth comes growing pains—especially when it comes to accounting. When Chief Financial Officer Jeff Vogt joined the company, he realized that not much had changed from the mom-and-pop accounting procedures that were put into place at the company’s inception.
