This year, Personiv rolled out two new tools to help you choose the best outsourced accounting company. The first – an interactive calculator that makes it easy to see how much you can expect to spend on an offshore accounting solution – was designed to make the process of comparing outsourcing costs transparent and fast and in real time. The second – a list of 79 questions finance leaders can ask potential outsourcing vendors – should allow you to cut through the noise and get the information you really need to choose the best outsourced accounting company.

We built both around the most common questions we get from prospective clients looking for financial services before they become our long-term partners, and now we've added a third tool to simplify the process of vetting finance and accounting and reduce the time it takes to enjoy the cost and efficiency savings that will make a real impact for your organization.

The Outsourced Accounting Vendor Comparison Spreadsheet can be used in conjunction with our other interactive tools, or on its own to create a side-by-side snapshot of accounting systems providers so you can compare apples to apples. The excel workbook is fully editable and because we understand that your time is valuable, you'll find key information about& Personiv's minimum hiring commitments, ISO Certifications, accounting software & technology capabilities and pricing structure prefilled with links to more information directly within the document.

You'll even find the contact information for a member of our Client Services team from directly within the spreadsheet so you can talk to a real person – not a contact form or automated answering system.
