Affinity Partner Spotlight:  Supporting Strategies
Ed Craven is focused on helping business owners process, measure and analyze their companies. Supporting Strategies partners with them to understand their needs and deliver the information required to record and evaluate operations. Our aim is to reduce the stress, time-suck, and cost of bookkeeping and processing. The result for me is a great deal of gratification in being part of a team driving a successful business.   

To engage with the local business community, I am a member of the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce. I am also a member of the Southern New England Entrepreneurs Forum. I enjoy volunteer work, and serve on the board of directors of the Cohasset Maritime Institute as Treasurer.

When not working, or volunteering I enjoy spending time with my wife and two college-age sons, boating and fishing in Massachusetts Bay, and coastal rowing. 

Supporting Strategies has been in business since 2004. We provide our clients with efficient and intelligent full service bookkeeping, financial reporting, operational support, and financial management services. Think of us as your complete accounting department.

We charge no minimums, require no long-term contracts, and each of our clients benefits from a dedicated team of two seasoned accounting professionals who deliver the support our clients need, when they need it, at a price they can afford.

Our affinity offer is a 10% discount on monthly services for 3 months, as well as free consultation. This offer is valid only from the Supporting Strategies | Southeastern Mass Cape & Islands office.
