The IBOS Mission

         To liberate small business owners from the tyranny of dangerously bad books and inadequate data security by making it easy and affordable to outsource both.

        To democratize access to the kind of big firm financial and IT advice that’s typically out of reach for small businesses, so owners can fix what’s not working and capitalize on what is.
