Find The Best Outsourced Accounting Company With This Vendor Comparison Worksheet

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. 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 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 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, technology capabilities and pricing structure prefilled with links to more information directly within the document.

We understand that as you look for the best outsourced accounting provider for your cost containment requirements, time is as valuable a resource as money. We've worked hard to make sure you have as much information at your disposal about Personiv without needing to chase down a quote or navigate a maze of frustrating forms. Because our solutions are fully customizable, however, we're always available to answer your questions, supply additional information and learn more about your organization's specific goals. 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.


Personiv helps busy finance leaders unlock new efficiencies and save up to 75 percent of their current finance and accounting costs with scalable solutions that are built around their organization's needs and deployed with a growth-minded agility that delivers results fast. That's the foundation we built this tool on, collecting insights and drawing on our client's experiences with sourcing, evaluating and selecting an outsourced accounting provider. We want to hear what you have to say, too. Whether you're looking to contain costs, fill talent gaps, combat burnout, improve your processes or improve efficiency, you have our full attention. Get in touch today to get started.

Not quite ready to compare vendors or evaluate costs just yet? We know that changing to an outsourced accounting strategy can be overwhelming at first. There isn’t a lot of great info out there on how it works, where to begin and what it really looks like in practice. Here is a list of several articles, white papers, reports and more to get you started.
