Accounting Operations Assurance

Value, accuracy, timeliness, and reliability

The traditional roles of Finance leaders are being disrupted – from ever-growing asks by executive leadership for participation in value-add, strategic business activities to the onslaught of disruptive technologies – resulting in Finance leaders needing to assess the relevance, timeliness, and reliability of their teams. Do organizations have the right strategic partner to help navigate these hurdles while ensuring they can continue to meet the day-to-day demands of their organization?

Accounting Operations Assurance vision

To be the strategic partner to Finance leaders by leveraging Assurance’s deep expertise in accounting in order to build confidence in the value, accuracy, timeliness and reliability of the Controllership function.

CFOs, VP Finances, Controllers, and other Finance leaders are tasked with governing most, if not all, the following inputs and their respective outputs:

  • Complex accounting
  • Consolidations
  • New accounting standards
  • Adjustments
  • Transaction processing
  • Reconciliations
  • Procure-to-pay
  • Reporting
  • Order-to-cash
  • External audits
  • Internal controls
 

Increasing demands, existing inefficiencies and the impact of technology

Finance’s broadening role results in competing interests which pull Finance leaders away from the controllership to initiatives that require them to partner with the rest of the organization, such as, strategic transactions. Also, the existing bottlenecks within the Controllership could be impeding your ability to focus on the value-add activities which those charged with governance are demanding of you. Furthermore, external forces such as technology advancements are rendering existing infrastructure obsolete or no longer fit for purpose.

Accounting Operations Assurance services recognize that Finance leaders need a partner they can work collaboratively with to evaluate their people, processes, infrastructure & controls, and to deliver practical and pragmatic solutions to address increasing demands, existing inefficiencies, and impacts of new technologies, while ensuring Finance remains honest to its core activities.
