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.

What Is The Total Cost of Ownership of Your Finance and Accounting Function?

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about the total cost of ownership of your accounting software. As I pointed out, there are many more hidden costs of owning and operating your own enterprise accounting software than many people realize. If you haven't read that post, you might want to read it first, as this post builds on the concepts already introduced there. This post discusses the total cost of ownership of the entire finance and accounting function, including the enterprise accounting software and all the other costs.

Operating in the Fog

One thing about living in Southeast Texas is that you never have to worry about having the same type of weather pattern between October and April. It can be sunny and 80 degrees one day and 45 degrees with a nasty north wind the next day. You never really know what you can expect, so you need to rely on the weatherman or weather sites to help you prepare for the coming days.

Can Your Fantasy Football Team Run Circles Around Your Accounting System?

I love playing Fantasy Football. I’ve been playing it since 1992 when a group of friends got together to form our first league. Honestly, I didn’t understand Fantasy Football, but just being able to hang out with my friends and compete with them was enough to suck me in.

Overcoming the Back-Office Growing Pains of Being a Mid-Sized Company

There are many small and many large companies, but few mid-sized companies in between. Often companies don’t survive the growing pains inherent in being mid-sized.

The finance and accounting department is one that typically poses the most challenges. Once companies have outgrown a program like QuickBooks, they often get lost in a shoebox of receipts before they can afford a major server-based accounting system, or the finance staff to support it.
