Outsourcing Low ROI Tasks Makes More Sense Than Ever Before

Posted by Tyler Link on Tue, Sep 15, 2020 @ 11:19 AM

The last six months have taught us a lot in business.  But, now more than ever, might be the best time to outsource low ROI activities like government compliant accounting and contract administration and management. While these tasks are routine, they follow strict and highly complex guidelines, and having experts navigate these waters on a “pay as you use” basis, makes a lot of sense for most small businesses. This method also ensures the small business has a much higher knowledge and expertise level of these guidelines than would be afforded with a single employee (or owner) performing and maintaining compliance. Outsourcing also allows the small business the necessity of the owner to concentrate on high ROI activities such as business development, business growth, and management.

Does your Accounting Department Help you Succeed?

Posted by Tyler Link on Mon, Aug 10, 2020 @ 11:20 AM

In the depths of a pandemic and resulting massive economic upheaval across our country and the globe, government contractors and grantees are focused more than ever on simply staying afloat; keeping the lights on and the doors open. Similarly, the accounting departments or outside firms that they rely on are solely focused on the day-to-day bookkeeping and monthly accounting—the bare minimum required to ensure compliance.

Accounting Firms are a Dime a Dozen...

Between direct contract work, deadlines, compliance issues, and trying to stay afloat during a pandemic, contractors and grantees have enough on their plates just trying to keep the lights on. And sure, outsourcing certain functions can be an efficient way to save money and time (accounting is a prime example of this).  But, who you ultimately select to be a part of your team is more important than you realize.
