Kind words from organizations we've served

Pat has been employed with us for the past 13 years. He has overseen the restructuring of our finance department in which we have experienced minimal disruptions. This has been a key change for us over the past dozen years which he has navigated successfully! He is a person of integrity, hardworking and has been faithful in his role as CFO.

Because of Pat at Plains Edge, the Foundation was able to convert from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online effectively and efficiently. Not only did he manage the conversion, but he also set up our new accounts with ease and wrote us a thorough process manual that will be used forever. We can’t thank Pat enough for his support and knowledge during this transition and wouldn’t hesitate to refer him in the future.

We have worked with Pat Martens and his team at Plains Edge for the past several years while developing several key improvements in our financial systems. Pat has transitioned us toward cloud-based solutions and efficiencies. He has also built us a sophisticated five-year plan framework to be used annually with key indicators of enrolment and staffing. We are grateful to the team at Plains Edge for their knowledge and expertise in research and financial operations.

Pat worked with us to review and overhaul our accounting structure. His work is professional and meticulous. He readily responded to our questions throughout the process and even after the job was complete. We highly recommend Pat.

Pat Martens is a professional committed to thoroughness and excellence. He brings experience and a first-class mind. My experience working with Pat on a couple of important projects; designing and implementing important strategic systems allowed me to experience his work ethic and acumen. I highly recommend Pat.

We worked with Pat to create and operationalize the financial framework for the Manitoba Association of Safety in Healthcare (MASH). Once the framework was in place, he trained our staff and is providing ongoing support to the team. Pat is extremely knowledgeable, detail-orientated, and has extensive problem-solving skills. We would not hesitate to work with him again and would recommend him to anyone looking for financial services.

Ron Van Denakker
Executive director

Manitoba Association for Safety in Healthcare

Pat has been working for us for a number of years. Each year I can be assured that his work will be accurate and easily clear the audit that our Board conducts. In his time with us, we have gone through 3 finance software transitions and we have never experienced any interruptions. His financial forecasts have been an essential tool as we have planned for our future as a school.

Pat presented an excellent seminar in my Missiological Issues class. He helped the students understand and explore Canadian non-profits and charities, and connected this topic in a practical way with their future ministries. Pat and his wife Judy also led the class through a session on personal finance and how it relates to faith and stewardship.

I would also recommend the services that Pat and the team at Plains Edge provided to our congregation. Your attention to detail and clear understanding of finance as well as proper reporting system to comply with CRA. Thanks for leading us through our restructuring.
