    Industry specialization

    Advantage team members are organized by industry specialization to focus on key challenges and opportunities that can be addressed with outsourced solutions. We combine our knowledge of your business with industry insights to keep you competitive, informed and in compliance.

    Since working with Baker Tilly Advantage, we’ve been able to scale our organization without a corresponding increase in finance full-time equivalents (FTEs). There is a seamless transition of accounting support and organizational knowledge…unlike the gap created when managed internally. The account team doesn’t look at our organization with a single focus — they look beyond the numbers to bring a broad range of ideas for how they can support Filene’s success.
