Family Owned and Operated Business
Account Wise is in Henderson within minutes of West City, West Auckland. The proprietors are Garth and Ivana Dryland. Ivana’s the main point of contact and has loads of book-keeping experience since first training in 1990 at Gillian Inglis Business College, passing an Executive Secretarial Course, excelling in problem solving, accountancy and typing accuracy.
In February 1998 Ivana joined the family air conditioning business efficiently managing the office. During the time that followed Ivana taught herself MYOB while transferring away from the previous accounting package. In 2000 Ivana attended some MYOB Jumpstart Accounting software courses to hone the skills learnt.
During 2002 Garth met Ivana and not long after also commenced working in the Family business. In early 2006 they purchased their first property together and married later that year. A few years on in 2008 after a change of management they decided to start their own company and formed the core entity Double D Works Ltd with the accounting and tax division trading as Account Wise.
If you’re interested in how the company name was born, it came from Dryland and Dryland and said to work, hence Double D Works Ltd. 2008 as many came to realise was the global financial crisis and companies were going under. Garth and Ivana worked hard to get their business off the ground, while helping others to do the same.
More recently in 2011, Ivana (and Garth) moved the Account Wise business practice into the cloud becoming Xero Certified Partners and have since learnt about many useful add-on services for Xero like ReceiptBank. There are over 500 to choose from in the eco-system should your circumstances benefit from other functionality.
Both Garth and Ivana strive to meet a high standard in workmanship and expect the same from their employees. Currently being introduced is Tracey (who started in September 2015) to the company systems to make sure vital processes remain solid during future expansion. Maintaining consistency and the needs of clients is extremely important.
If for any reason something doesn’t meet your expectations during the course of engagement, Account Wise will with consultation and open communication work with you to clarify any issues you may have. Account Wise brings efficiency and honesty, problem solving and dedication to your business. We can get any small to medium business project done with our can do approach.
