A LEGACY OF GIVING
Make Meaning Corporation (dba Complete Controller) was founded on the ideal shared by Guy Kawasaki in his book "The Art of the Start" which states the imperative for a business to make meaning in people's lives in order to be successful.
Now, through our partnership with B1G1, whenever we do business we will make meaning in the lives of even more people.
The Leadership Team
Freedom To Achieve!
Chief Executive Officer & Founder
Dear Fellow Business Owner,
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about how Complete Controller can help you achieve your goal of maintaining current, accurate and accessible financial information so you can run a successful business. Once you learn about this state of the art, easy to use system I hope that you, like many others, say: “Why hasn’t this been available before?” Then, when you learn how cost effective our system is, I trust you will want us to be your accounting solution.
Complete Controller was inspired by recognizing the desire of business owners to save time and money on their accounting while retaining the benefits of a dedicated accounting team. To achieve this, your account is assigned to a dedicated bookkeeper who quickly becomes familiar with your company’s needs. Your bookkeeper communicates easily with you and your team and remotely handles all tasks and keeping your records current. You and your team have access to your financial documents and data on-demand through our secure cloud platform.
So, with Complete Controller, outsourcing does not mean sacrificing connectivity. Our goal is to bear the burden of your financial tasks and record keeping functions so you and your staff can focus on other business activities. At the same time you can constantly measure the success of your business decisions with the use of our customizable report packages that have performance-based analysis capabilities.
Better results, better value. Complete Controller gives you the freedom to achieve.
