Testimonials

  • I am writing to provide my enthusiastic and unwavering endorsement of Blue Accounting Firm, based on my experiences working closely with Blue’s team. As the Administrator at Evansville Protestant Home, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Blue over the past 8 years, and I am consistently impressed with the level of professionalism, expertise, and commitment to excellence that Blue demonstrates.

    Our values at Evansville Protestant Home are deeply ingrained in the principles of being responsive, caring advocates for our residents. It brings me great satisfaction to confirm that Blue has not only aligned with these values but has also exceeded our expectations. Blue’s responsiveness has been exceptional, and the dedication to understanding our unique needs and concerns has made them a true advocate.

    One of the remarkable aspects of our partnership with Blue is the ability to identify additional areas of value for our organization. Identifying opportunities for cost savings, process improvements, and strategic financial planning has proven invaluable to us and will lay groundwork toward years of sustainability.

    What truly sets Blue Accounting Firm apart from other firms is the unwavering commitment to personalized service. The tailored solutions to meet our specific needs and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure our satisfaction have been instrumental in our decision to partner with Blue.
    Lastly, I must highlight the unexpected benefits that Blue has provided us. Blue’s commitment to staying at the forefront of industry trends and regulatory changes has kept us well-informed and better prepared for the future. This forward-thinking approach has given us a competitive advantage and has solidified our trust in the firm as a long-term partner.

    I would like to mention by name-Landon-Abby-Jill and Alan for personalized service, and consistent over-delivery on expectations. It has made them an indispensable asset to our organization. I look forward to continuing our partnership and achieving even greater success together. The healthcare world continues to evolve. As a standalone not for profit facility, the Board and I appreciate knowing they are a phone call away.

  • There is a big difference in my mind between a third-party vendor and a true partner. I have always felt like Blue is our partner and their actions reinforce that sentiment on every single occasion.

    Even with a large team comprised of segmented subject matter experts, I have always had the ability to directly communicate with anyone on the team regarding our organizations needs and their expertise. It’s extremely reassuring to know that you can always connect!

    Through such positive collaboration and a desire to always find improvements, Blue has helped our organization with clearly communicating information and what it means – to every class of stakeholder. From board members to front-line staff, I believe everyone at my organization sees the value that Blue provides.

  • I have worked with Blue for almost 10 years. They are great. Responsive, knowledgeable and provide a personal touch. Whether it be audits, consulting, taxes, cost reports, I have had nothing but positive results from them at every level. They have helped me out when some of the facilities I work with were at rock bottom and pulled us right back up!

  • As President/CEO for a mid-size non-profit, it is important that I lead our Board of Directors through a diligent search for a dependable and reputable auditing firm. As an organization that provides some specialized services, we want to know that the audit firm we choose has a diverse knowledge of programs, services, and funding that we administer. As we did our last review and evaluation of auditing services, it became clear that Blue & Company embodies all of the things our organization needs to assure we are compliant with our internal control and accounting practices, and that we are accountable to all of the funders that help us impact people.

    The leadership from the top at Blue & Company has been impressive, are relationship oriented, and they get our mission/vision/values. For Blue & Company, I believe they take their relationship to a level even above, “Just producing our audit” each year. The field representatives are always impressive, timely, and responsive to the needs of our organization and they are not afraid to take a “deep dive” to assure the auditing services we receive from Blue & Company are robust.

    Blue & Company is an organization that appreciates efficiency and making the audit process efficient for our accounting team. We have appreciated and valued this. At the Board table, Blue & Company engages with our Board members in a way I had not observed with other auditing firms. Blue & Company is not afraid to take questions and to explain thoroughly the audit reports to make sure the Carey Services team will use the documents produced for future growth and improvement.
