Cogent as a consulting company originated as a technology division within an accounting firm providing internal support to the firm and external support to other companies.  The technology division was spun off of the accounting firm to form Cogent and the accounting firm remains a client to this day.  As a result, we are very familiar with a variety of software used by the firm and their clients such as QuickBooks, PeachTree/Sage, Thomson Reuters PPC, GoFileRoom, Practice CS, Accounting CS, and UltraTax, CCH ProSystem fx Tax, Sage Timekeeper, and various other packages used by accountants and bookkeepers.
