Media Environment Design to Offer Financial Management Consultation and Training Services

Media Environment Design has forged a relationship with The ShinerGroup, adding financial management consulting and training to its suite of services.

June 18, 2007, San Diego, CA – Media Environment Design, Inc, founding D-Tools certified partner and creator of the successful “MIT” Unlimited D-Tools training program, has announced its new relationship with The ShinerGroup, a provider of accounting consultation services to contractors and system integrators.

Media Environment Design has added a specialized suite of services, specially tailored to serve its system integration clientele, most of which use D-Tools System Integration Software along with QuickBooks. The service offering includes a “Financial Tune-up for your Business” as well as several specialized courses designed to help companies get the most out of their financial management software. Custom consultations will also be available to help companies solve specific issues they are dealing with in their businesses.

“Leslie and her team are the best financial consultants available in our industry. Her knowledge of this industry and her experience working with companies for over twenty years is invaluable. Several of our clients have worked with The ShinerGroup over the years and have experienced tremendous success. We established a relationship with Leslie and her team of consultants to provide the highest level of bookkeeping and financial consultation to our customers. Many companies in our industry are growing and with that growth they need to have solid financial and accounting systems in place to manage their growth. We now have a comprehensive solution for our customers”, explains Ryan Brown, VP of MED.

All courses are delivered one-on-one over the web using desktop sharing technology, allowing the shared use of the customer’s computer screen. The instructor has the ability to view the customer’s screen, but can also display their own screen to demonstrate best practices or sample processes. This interactive delivery methodology allows for the sequential delivery of several sessions, providing the customer with maximum knowledge retention and empowerment level.

Ms Shiner explains: “Understanding the financial side of the business helps integrators improve profitability and manage growth. Without that roadmap, too many companies lose money without knowing why. We help companies create a repeatable process that will help them manage their business. We teach accounting in simple English and make it understandable to help meet everyday business needs.”
