Technology start-up streamlines business processes with Baker Tilly

A technology start-up located in the Midwest desired a trusted partner who could provide advisory services and scale their support based on their business growth. Read more to see how Baker Tilly worked with the client to prioritize process definition and implementation of a new financial management solution, Sage Intacct.

Client background:

A technology start-up located in the Midwest has aggressive growth goals and a parent company with substantial accountability and oversight. The client desired a trusted organization with deep subject matter knowledge and a wealth of professional service experience to support outsourced accounting, payroll and human resources (HR). More specifically, an organization who could provide advisory services and scale their support based on the client’s business growth.

The business challenge:

As a technology start-up, the client had yet to establish standardized business processes associated with their accounting, payroll and HR functions, which created inconsistencies and inefficiencies. They also required an accounts payable solution for a virtual office, which was not yet deployed. All of the above required time and attention from various stakeholders within their team, pulling them away from other responsibilities. Being in the early stages of the business, executives recognized the need for additional resources and knowledge on various functions and business processes.

The Baker Tilly approach:

Once selected, Baker Tilly worked with the client to prioritize process definition and implementation of a new financial management solution, Sage Intacct, a forerunner in bringing cloud computing to finance and accounting for small and medium-sized businesses. Our initial focus was on defining standardized business processes across accounting, payroll and HR while providing the necessary requirements to successfully design, build, test and deploy the new solution.

The business impact:

Throughout the implementation of Sage Intacct, Baker Tilly’s professionals brought proactive insights and solutions that allow the client’s business leaders to focus on more strategic tasks and initiatives to grow their business. We facilitated a seamless transition to our outsourced accounting and HR resources. The implementation efforts allowed the client to:

  • Effectively deploy an integrated accounting, accounts payable, expense management, payroll and HR support platform
  • Gain access to timely, comprehensive and dynamic reporting through tailored, real-time dashboards to inform decision making
