Outsourcing Your Back Office

[3698] Outsourcing Your Back Office
Which scenarios make the most sense to outsource the accounting function of the agency and much more.

One significant cost savings they take advantage of is outsourcing work that can easily be outsourced while leaving the owners and operators in control of their businesses. There are many back office functions that can be outsourced such as payroll, billing and QA – but accounting is an often overlooked back office function that can also be easily outsourced to provide the agency a better bottom line, reduced administrative staff costs and less back office management needed. Not only can this be a cost savings but it can also really simplify the operations – less staff to manage and knowing that someone who is skilled at that activity is handling it. In this session we will discuss which scenarios make the most sense to outsource the accounting function of the agency, how it works and what solutions are out there to assist in finding the right mix of outsourcing the work but still maintaining control.
