Relay is THE BEST for running Profit First

New accounts are really easy to set up, allocations take mere seconds to deploy to your various accounts, and you can easily see where your business stands at a glance. They have awesome customer support and truly care about their customers."
Good for Profit First!
"It's very smooth, easy to use. I am doing Profit First, and it makes it extremely easy to set up multiple accounts. If you do a transfer and set up multiple transfers at once, you can even choose to split up your transfers by percentage!"
Relay is phenomenal
"As a Profit First Professional, I have a lot of clients that ask me for help when setting up their Profit First accounts. Relay is phenomenal. Not only is it easy to set up and use, the ability to make one transfer to multiple accounts and divide it up by percentages is life-changing. The transaction detail, virtual cards, and accountant access are simply icing on the cake! I highly recommend setting up your account(s) ASAP."
