Operational Accounting & Process Optimization

Faster close, smarter insights, and greater value

Spend less time closing the books and more time looking forward. With in-depth OCFO expertise, we provide controllership assistance in leading teams through close execution, process optimization, and key operational accounting projects.

Create future financial value today. Here’s how.

Lead and assist the controllership function

Working within your existing finance function, we provide best-in-practice close oversight along with the structure, consistency, and analytical review necessary to remove process bottlenecks. We can also work independently as your organization’s controllership function to execute all close-related tasks and deliver results to leadership. This includes standing up a best-in-class controllership as well as the processes and procedures to support the growth of the finance function.

Prepare for and facilitate the external audit process

Working with internal audit and external auditors, we lay the foundation for an effective, efficient audit process as required by governing bodies. This includes supporting CFOs, controllers, and third parties in the implementation and execution of close activities. Our approach ensures the proper documentation, evaluation, sharing, and reviewing of relevant procedures and materials in a digital-first, risk-ready environment. 

Support the controllership function during periods of transition and unanticipated change

For expert change management, business continuity, and surge support, we evaluate and adjust existing processes to the realities of new requirements. Our experience in handling complex accounting challenges during the close period includes:

  • New financial standards implementation
  • ERP implementation
  • Pre-IPO readiness
  • Audit readiness
  • Financial controls documentation and execution
Accelerate the close process for greater competitive advantage

Closing the books to obtain accurate numbers faster empowers the finance function and the business to respond to market conditions and capitalize on opportunities with speed and agility. While executing the close process, we evaluate current processes, identify opportunities for efficiency, and implement tailored solutions to reduce close time.

Identify and execute process optimization opportunities

Best-in-class organizations complete the financial close in four days. When it takes weeks, “close fatigue” limits companies’ strategic ability to succeed in the present and plan for the future. Our approach focuses on opportunities within the organization, leveraging existing systems as much as possible to limit the need to perform manual tasks, which, in turn, drives efficiencies within the close process and reduces time-to-close.
