In 1992, C-MAP USA spun-off from its original technology
partner and became responsible for its own financial and accounting management.
At that point the company had five employees and was operating out of a
small office. Ken contacted Nick Puniello to guide them through the establishment
of a comprehensive accounting system. The company grew rapidly and the accounting
function grew exponentially. Nick has guided C-MAP in establishing an inventory
control system, reporting to the foreign parent company and eventually accounting
for transactions with fifteen affiliated companies. "The tax and accounting
issues mounted and we have been able to rely on Nick for sound advice during
our rapid growth stage" said Ken Cirillo.
