We also received special recognition for outstanding Inter-fraternal service support and friendship and have been written about in the Wall Street Journal. How cool is that?

Ignite Spot Accounting
In 2007, our founder and CEO, Eddy Hood, was working as an auditor for a local CPA firm here in Salt Lake City, Utah. On one particularly stubborn day, he had to inform a business owner that his cash balance was $50,000 off. The cause: his bookkeeper had made a mistake and had tried to cover it up with a series of journal entries. That one piece of news brought the entrepreneur to his knees. It was devastating. Eddy quit his job the very next day. No joke. He had no clients to drive revenue. What he did have was a belief that CEOs needed more than what the accounting world could give them.

Pondera was created with one revolutionary idea in mind…people want to have actual, real conversations. Imagine what could happen if your customers truly felt heard, understood and appreciated on each and every interaction with your company. Customers are changing.

Reconnect with your customers by treating them like what they are…your company’s most important asset!
