PROCESS EVALUATION AND FACILITATION
Management accountants evaluate how effectively business processes are functioning and are able to document these processes – transitioning them from the realm of informal “folk” wisdom to a formal standard business practice. The process of evaluation and documentation inevitably leads to modification where inefficiencies (such as duplication) or opportunities (such as automation) are identified and changes are recommended.
A process evaluation in your organization can lead to a change in corporate culture, from one of doing tasks because “that’s the way we’ve always done it” to one of continuous improvement.
CONTRACT NEGOTIATION AND FACILITATION
In a difficult negotiation, where the complexities can be overwhelming, our expertise at problem identification and solution makes us your ideal partners. We work with you to identify all of the key issues and help you to define the implications of each one. With Pace, you will go into your negotiation confident that you understand all sides of every issue – knowing where you have room to move and where you must hold the line.
We assist in all types of contract negotiation, with unions, landlords, in business acquisitions or sales, suppliers, customers, governments and anywhere else that involves an exchange of rights for value.
We can help you establish, maintain or upgrade your ERP/Financial Management accounting system. Our hands-on experience with a wide variety of systems will help ensure you choose the right solution for your needs. No matter which provider you choose, we will work with you to ensure your success from systems selection, installation and implementation. Our staff has a detailed and well-developed understanding of small and mid-range systems.
MEETING YOUR NEEDS Some of the services we offer are not traditional to public accounting firms, but are of great value to our clients.
These services include training, interviewing, testing and recommending new accounting hires, as well as all types of negotiations.
Some services more traditionally associated with accounting firms, such as audit services, are not services we have chosen to provide.
ABOUT BILLING All billing arrangements, and an outline of the work that we will be undertaking on your behalf, will be contained in an engagement letter that you agree to before we begin work. In most cases billings are rendered monthly, based on the number of hours that we devote to your file, at rates that we negotiate before starting any particular project.
In cases where work is ongoing and predictable (such as monthly bookkeeping), we can establish a fixed rate that is billed every month. Fixed fees are based on an extensive analysis of the tasks to be included, in other words, on the actual work to be done. You will receive a copy of this analysis for your records.
Our goal is to promote the financial health and well-being of our client.
