Scott H. Payne, CPA, MCSE

Scott is a Certified Public Accountant and a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer with over ten years of public/private accounting as well as computer consulting experience. Scott specializes in providing business/computer consulting to a wide array of clients. His cross between accounting and technology skills gives Scott a unique perspective.

During his career, Scott has worked with Coopers & Lybrand in the Attestation Services Group in Phoenix, worked as a Controller for a wholesale/retailer, and as Vice President of Operations of an Internet company startup. These experiences have provided him with a strong understanding of the operational complexities and system requirements associated with running a successful organization. Scott assisted each of these organizations in defining and implementing policies and procedures that led to increased growth and profitability.

Upon selling his Internet startup, Scott returned to the consulting environment in 1999. Since then he has focused on helping his clients become more technologically effective, while always keeping in mind the importance of the accounting structure. He has done this through evaluating systems and procedures that are currently in place to determine the effectiveness of the existing structure and how it could be improved. He has also worked with clients to define, plan and implement technology solutions that will best fit the organization and its goals. Some examples include assistance with software selection, implementation and training, evaluating and developing technology plans, network administration assistance, developing virtual private networks to allow remote access, developing websites and providing e-commerce solutions.

In the last year, Scott received his Certified Intuit Master Builder ProAdvisor status. This has enabled him to begin helping clients to implement Master Builder.

Scott received a B.S.B.A. in Accounting from the University of Arizona and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Scott enjoys coaching his daughters' soccer teams. Scott serves in both leadership and teaching responsibilities in his church.
