Apis Means What? More than you suspect.

Apis Business Solutions, LLC is not your normal accounting/bookkeeping firm. There is usually something behind the name of a company, so here is the Apis Story.

Suzy Schutz, my business partner and I originally got together because our son and daughter got married.  We survived the divorce. Suzy had been a small business owner for 20 years.  I on the other hand, had spent my life in the corporate world.  She knew accounting/bookkeeping and I knew management, training, education.  We formed Apis Business Solutions for the following reasons:

  • Assist our clients in capturing & understanding the true financial state of their business
  • Provide our clients with an unparalleled level of accounting and bookkeeping service that facilitates their business success.
  • Implement bookkeeping systems that transform our clients’ financial records into a powerful management and tax preparation tool
  • Set clear & coherent standards within the bookkeeping industry so business owners know what they should expect when hiring a professional accountant/bookkeeper.

We also wanted to contribute to our community by providing business workshops to help entrepreneurs and small business owners learn about all the parts of a business and begin to implement a plan for success.

So what’s up with the bee thing?  Apis is the Latin word for a family of honeybees.  Bees naturally group into nests.  Like a business without proper bookkeeping they are strictly functional.  They give the bees a place to bring nectar to process into honey, similar to the way any accounting/bookkeeping system provides a path to enter and store data in order to turn it into useful information.  A hive is what we call a honeybee community when it is being managed by beekeepers.  Hives are organized to facilitate extracting honey without harming or disrupting the bees.

This is our approach to what we call BizKeeping–we organize bookkeeping systems in order to facilitate extracting financial information from your business so that your business can thrive.  We stand behind you, so you can stand out!  We offer a full range of Accounting and Bookkeeping Services.  We also believe that most small business owners can not do it alone, nor should they; so we have worked hard within the community to add CPAs, attorneys, financial planners, bankers, business coaches, marketing and sales professionals to our referral list, so if you call we have a solution or know someone who does.  The Hive continues to grow!
