About the Company

Pivot Accounting, a reputable accounting firm with 15 years of experience and over 300 clients in BC, Canada, is a leading provider of accounting services. They frequently receive requests from clients looking to switch to simpler accounting software or upgrade to a more advanced system. 

To capitalize on this opportunity, Pivot Accounting offers data migration services in partnership with SaaS Direct.

Pivot Accounting has proven to be a valuable strategic partner for SaaS Direct.


Pivot Accounting’s client, from the construction industry, wanted a solution that was specifically tailored to their industry and was cost-effective. Prior to the migration, the client was locked out of NetSuite and unable to export certain technical data. 

Additionally, the client wanted to move to a cloud-based solution so their files could be accessed online and at the same time deliver the requirements of the company.

Successful Outcomes

  • Successfully retrieved internal links and recreated lost data during migration, ensuring zero-downtime conversion and upgraded underlying processes.
  • Improved relationship with client, joined SaaS Direct Partner Program for future projects.


SaaS Direct quickly assessed the situation and suggested migrating the data to QuickBooks Enterprise Contractor Edition, which has a user-friendly interface and is easy to navigate. 

Another requirement was to have a cloud-based solution, as QuickBooks Enterprise Contractor Edition is a desktop version. SaaS Direct introduced the company to SaaS Direct’s cloud hosting service, which allows the desktop version to be accessed online by everyone. This worked well, allowing construction teams to access the same data simultaneously from different locations. 

To prevent loss of data, SaaS Direct’s data migration specialists and tech support team were able to retrieve the necessary internal links and recreate lost data quickly and without errors, ensuring zero-downtime conversion.
