Ascent Conference: Finance & Accounting Playbook

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of participating in this year’s Ascent Conference, a staple of the startup, SaaS, and venture capital communities in the Greater NYC area. Because of COVID, the event was held virtually. I gave a keynote presentation on “How to Extend Your Runway with a Finance and Accounting Playbook.” As the founder and CEO of AcctTwo, a services and technology company delivering the Future of Finance and Accounting to nearly 1,000 organizations throughout the country, my team and I have firsthand experience implementing the processes, controls, and technology needed to optimize financial resources for SaaS companies at variety of growth stages. As a result of this experience, we’ve developed a Finance and Accounting Playbook that I shared during the keynote. The effects of COVID-19 for the past few months have only reinforced the need for this kind of planning.

Why Should You Spend Money on Software?

Don't Focus on the Software's Price-Tag, Focus on the ROI

An obvious question and subsequent discussion that comes up in this business is "How much does a software solution cost?" When a customer sees the price tag associated with any software purchase, there is an immediate, visceral, human reaction. The customer or company has most likely determined a specific budget for the new tool that's being considered, and even if that assessment hasn't been made with due diligence, there's some sort of ballpark number in most people's heads, or at least a limit, when they start to look at what's available. What often quickly gets lost is the return on investment of those solutions.

Size Doesn't Matter

I've had many conversations with people about business process outsourcing (BPO) and finance and accounting outsourcing (FAO), and whether a company is either too big or too small for outsourcing to make sense. Some people take the position that smaller companies should outsource, but will get to a certain point where they should really bring their accounting function in-house.

Here's a Head-Scratcher - The Value of Audited Financial Statements

I met with a banker yesterday from one of the top 3 big national banks. We were introducing him to AcctTwo and our business process outsourcing services for small and medium-sized companies. We thought he would appreciate knowing that his clients could use AcctTwo to generate more timely and accurate financial and management reports, and his bank would get their required financial statements and borrowing base covenant calculations much faster.
