Case Study: Catch-22 Creative
Catch-22 Creative is a Milwaukee based creative team that works to elevate brands, products, and ideas. Their capabilities include, but are not limited to: strategy, branding, digital marketing, content development, video, prints, and external marketing support. They have been one of Milwaukee's top thriving creative teams for over a decade.
Catch-22 Creative turned to the Giersch Group after the resignation of their office manager of 10 years. After a decade with the same bookkeeper, the thought of training someone new was scary and the transition was a source of anxiety for the owners.
While the Giersch Group is primarily a remote bookkeeping solution which does not entail having an employee on site, they recognized the need to give this client an extra measure of comfort with this transition. A Giersch Group Client Controller worked onsite at Catch 22’s office two days a week for several weeks during the transition as they took over bookkeeping, invoicing, payroll and sales tax. After the former bookkeeper was gone, they continued to work onsite for over a month until the trust and comfort level with the client was adequate to go to remote, partially at first, and eventually full remote.
The transition was seamless. Working side by side with owners enabled the Giersch Group to learn the subtle things that were important to them after a decade with the same bookkeeper. Establishing trust with the owners also allowed the Giersch Group to suggest improvements to the systems and to take advantage of the efficiencies that come with ever changing technology and a remote work model.
"We turned to the Giersch Group following the resignation of our part time office manager of 10 years. The transition was seamless. The entire Giersch team was sensitive to our needs and helped us improve our systems to create more efficiency. We not only appreciate the fact that they have been sensitive to cost and pricing, but also how quickly they have integrated into our team.”
