Beene Garter Streamlined Diamond Concrete’s Payroll System to Accommodate its Growing Business Needs
Challenge

Growing business means growing business needs

As a service-based construction company operating for nearly 50 years, Diamond Concrete most recently used an accounting firm based out of Kansas City, MO, for its payroll system. Owner Kara Louisell, however, decided the partnership was no longer working for her business. As Diamond Concrete continues to grow, Kara wants more accountability and transparency in the payroll process.

“The relationship we had with that group was fine, it’s just not like what we have with Beene Garter.” – Kara Louisell, Owner of Diamond Concrete

At one point, payroll was handled internally by Kara, who explains that the process was becoming cumbersome and overwhelming. The company needed a better solution.

Solution

Kara was familiar with Beene Garter, as Diamond Concrete had used its accounting services for several years prior to adding payroll services in 2017. The partnership made perfect sense as a trusted relationship with Beene Garter had developed.

Diamond Concrete worked with Beene Garter to develop a program that would integrate its systems for a more seamless process. All that needs to be done is record employees’ time and send it over to Beene Garter to handle the rest—it’s that easy.

“I don’t question anything they do and trust that they’ve got everything in line that they need to." - Kara Louisell, Owner of Diamond Concrete
