Accounting and Finance Transformation Rationale

What factors and facts are the basis for the finance transformation rationale? What will necessitate a systems replacement and process re-engineering? Finance and Accounting function is a cornerstone of your business operations. How do you know if and when it is time for a Finance and Accounting transformation? Here are a few drivers for any enterprise to consider to help make a restructuring and transformation decision of the finance and accounting function.

  1. Your strategy and decisions are not driven by timely finance and accounting data
  2. Can’t measure or fathom the synergies from the recent mergers/acquisitions
  3. Don’t know how much cash is there or there is not an effective way to harness cash
  4. Budgeting is based on anything but facts and data
  5. Forecasting is based on hunches
  6. Cost of managing the finance function far exceeds the value
  7. Navigating the multiple GAAP reporting mazes is impossible
  8. The finance function is replete with non-standard and ad hoc reporting
  9. Internal controls are either lax or cumbersome and complicated
  10. Various accounting and finance systems. No exact golden copy.
  11. Convoluted processes that take an army of consultants/contractors to fulfill
  12. Cost of compliance and violations of regulations galore
  13. Effort and Cost of finance and accounting systems maintenance is spiraling out of control
  14. Spreadsheet and Access databases galore
  15. Finance function feels like a recorder of what happened in the past, not an influencer of what to come next.

Product FAQs:

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.

When can I access my deliverables?

We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.

Where can I access my deliverables?

Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.

Are there any restrictions on Downloads?

Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.

Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?

You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.

Can we talk to you on the phone?

Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.

Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?

Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
