No matter the size of your business or the industry it operates within, your accounting and finance team shoulder a lot of responsibility. Accounts payable, accounts receivable, cash management, expense approval…the list goes on and on and sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in a day to get it all done.
We partner with businesses of all sizes and in various industries to help them find technology that streamlines their finance and accounting processes. With the right tools in place, these businesses gain access to real-time information to make sound decisions, automate key accounting functions, and free up time to focus on growing their businesses.
These are some of the most common finance and accounting challenges our clients face when they first come to us:
- Collecting and receiving payments from clients
- Payment delays
- Lack of real-time financial reporting
- Manual efforts to match AP invoices to POs
- Financial consolidations
- Need for financial variance analysis
- Inter-company eliminations/reconciliations
- Manual data entry and siloed financial data leading to mistakes and reporting delays
- Cash flow management
- The 1099 process
Small Changes, Big Impact: Steps to Finance & Accounting Software Integration and Automation
You’ve probably heard the term digital transformation - but you might be wondering what it means, and even more so, what does it mean for your business. Think about it like this: You are likely overwhelmed with decisions more than ever - and looking at new ways to do business to bounce back from a changing world. That can seem like too big an obstacle to take on – but it doesn't have to be that way.
Many of our clients have started with just one single step – making the dive into digital transformation a little less complicated. They didn't try to solve all their problems in a day. They just took one step forward asking themselves - what can I automate or integrate to make this one business area run better? Making even one small change to your technology can have a big impact in your business. For example, digital transformation could mean a simple solution to automate your purchase to pay process. Or maybe a mobile app for your team to capture expenses without all of the paper. It’s simply embracing technology to help run your business better.
