Outsourced Accounting: 10 Factors to Consider

Outsourcing your accounting operations is an important consideration in the trajectory of your organization’s growth.  We have outlined 10 factors to consider with the top two factors on our list being time and money as they are both the forces most frequently causing business leaders to seek our services.  The other eight factors on our list remain every bit as important.  When you view this list in its entirety, you will see what a dramatic transformation could be in store for your organization when you work with Cordia Partners.

 1.  Time10 Factors Feat Img.jpeg

Outsourcing your accounting serves to free up valuable time and resources that can be better spent driving strategic initiatives.  Because outsourcing provides reliable execution of transactions and scheduled delivery of reporting, organizational opportunities can be quickly identified and acted on. 

Many startup organizations turn to outsourcing immediately because they recognize that they are not in the business of accounting and don’t want to spend time hiring and managing administrative staff.  This realization is also why more and more established businesses are following this best practice to remain lean and focused.

 

2.  Gain efficiency / reduce costs

Established companies that run an in-house accounting function discover that the move to outsourcing eliminates or reduces inefficiencies that have developed over time. 

Outsourcing often sheds light on outdated processes, resistance to needed change, and archaic methods.  Very often, in-house technology is grossly outdated.  This prevents your organization from leveraging modern technology in a way that would benefit processes and profitability.

Cordia brings the skills, accounting and industry best practices, processes, and systems to address the problem areas and replace them with money-saving efficiencies.

6.  Access to Modern Business Systems

Leveraging the best of today’s technology is another benefit of outsourcing.  Cordia Partners gives you access to systems that are configured for your industry and further customized for your business. In addition to more powerful reporting and time-saving features, modern systems bring new, stringent security levels that are not available on legacy systems developed decades ago.

Scalability is a powerful benefit for growing organizations because outsourcing allows fractional increases in both staffing and systems.  You always have the perfect fit – at an affordable price.  Outsourcing allows for service level adjustments without disrupting your business.
