Small and middle market finance departments often struggle with turnover challenges, recruiting trustworthy employees with the expertise needed, slow monthly closes, and inaccurate accounting. The owner needs to focus on sales and operations, but the finance function can often become a costly distraction. Calvetti Ferguson’s accounting services team understands and can provide experienced employees to implement a process and utilize technology solutions that meet your needs.
You will have a dedicated team working with you, learning your business, and keeping up with transactions throughout the month. Even better, we will have a review meeting monthly to talk about the results and what is going on in your business. Our directors and partners will help to drive reporting and discussions to help you achieve your business goals. And, best of all, we handle turnover risk, so there is no need to worry about your accountant leaving suddenly.
A well defined and robust process is key to a successful accounting cycle. We have a mature process that we follow to ensure transactions are entered timely and accurately, and to review and discuss monthly results to support the business. We implement this process for your business, providing direction and routine for employees, and predictability for the business.
We evaluate technology solutions based on business needs to select the technology stack that works for your company. We can automate accounts payable, reporting, and invoicing through the software, and for other routine tasks, we have in-house tools. This is all part of the monthly outsourced accounting service – we manage the selection, maintenance, and rollout of new software to support your accounting function.
