A 50-YEAR-OLD CPA FIRM WITH VISION: IT Infrastructure and Support That Looks to the Future
Vine Dahlen started as a small, one-person CPA firm, founded by Ann Vine in 1964. One of the first female public accountants in the state, Ann was joined by Ron Dahlen in the early 1970s, and Vine Dahlen was born. The firm has operated in Snohomish County in Northwest Washington for more than 50 years, and continues to operate according to the values and principles Ann and Ron established decades ago.
Vine Dahlen is focused on creating wealth and resources for individuals, closely-held companies, and not-for-profit organizations by providing forward thinking and proactive solutions. The firm’s team of state certified CPAs offers their clients a high level of service and expertise.
Staying abreast of change in an evolving environment
“We were really looking for a partner who was familiar with the accounting field and understood the requirements of our business,” says Scott Minnig, a tax partner with the firm.
“Nuvodia was up to date with the systems and software we need and just as importantly, offered customer service and support 24/7.”
24/7 support means added productivity
“We have people working at all hours sometimes and the ability of Nuvodia’s 24-hour helpdesk to fix an issue or solve a problem at any time means less downtime and more productivity. You can get ahold of someone right away when someone is working outside the normal 8 to 5,” says Minnig. “It just makes it easier to get things done”.
A partner that listens
“They’ve been really great at listening to us and trying to understand our needs rather than coming in with a bunch of preconceived ideas about how we should be doing things,” says Minnig. “They’re very good at listening and getting things solved when there’s a roadblock.”
“Nuvodia actually works with a lot of other accounting firms, so they’re familiar with the complicated tax packages and other industry specific software we depend on,” says Minnig. “They know the vendors and can be very helpful in troubleshooting issues and working directly with the vendors especially when dealing with things like upgrades and Microsoft compatibility issues.”
Vine Dahlen is poised for the next fifty years of growth and exceptional service to their clients due in no small part to the smart IT solutions and reliable systems put into place by Nuvodia.

“I recommend them without hesitation,” says Minnig. “They would be a great fit for any CPA firm.”
