Telecommunication business conditions are always changing, and business owners are facing greater expectations when it comes to growing the bottom line and doing more with less. Accounting and financial functions can be large sources of stress for telecom companies for many of those same reasons.

Ensuring the accuracy, transparency and timeliness of financial data is mission critical to a business’ success, but it also takes resources and management of internal accounting operations can be especially challenging for busy business leaders. Hiring experienced and reliable staff with accounting and financial expertise can be time-consuming and costly. Finding the right staff that can manage the day-to-day bookkeeping, determine KPIS and develop an agile growth strategy can feel somewhat impossible at times. The complexities around telecommunications accounting make the task even more challenging.

Hiring an outside service provider to take on the accounting responsibilities of your business can help mitigate many of these issues.

Check out five reasons way you should consider outsourcing your accounting and financial needs to Maner Costerisan, Michigan’s premiere telecommunications accounting and advisory partner.

  1. Knowledgeable professional guidance. By outsourcing your accounting operations to a professional accounting firm, you hire a team of experts that know the ins and outs finance, including the latest legislative changes that could impact your business. Additionally, you gain access to accounting professionals that are trained, experienced and knowledgeable in a variety of financial functions, including accounting, tax, strategic planning, data and analytics, and more. The firm considers staffing options so you have only the most experienced and qualified individuals focused on your business. In addition, a knowledgeable professional team will help you to better understand your business finances, provide guidance, and handle complex situations and tasks.
  2. Access expert telecommunication industry advice. Maner Costerisan has been working in the telecommunications industry for over 50 years. Our team is well versed on all the latest telecommunications regulatory and accounting requirements and is attuned to what happening across the industry in order to monitor relevant laws and regulations. Outsourcing your accounting operations to Maner ensures your business is keeping up with industry standards and reporting.
  3. Increase internal controls and reduce fraud. Some of the most common victims of fraud are privately-owned small businesses. Most of these companies have very few staff managing the financials, which can attribute to a lack of proper internal controls to detect and prevent fraud. Outsourcing accounting functions would help your business increase its internal controls, allowing for better segregation of duties. In addition, you would have access to professionals who can look for fraud signs and help implement proper fraud protection controls.
  4. Confidence, peace of mind and cost reduction. Outsourcing provides you support for accounting functions and peace of mind knowing errors are being reduced, and good accounting practices are being performed. When you team up with Maner, you can rest assured that the most qualified individuals are managing your finances in an unbiased and objective manner. Services are tailored and scalable to bring you the right expertise, including expertise in the telecommunications industry, at the right time. This also helps reduce costs, so you aren’t paying for services you don’t need.
  5. Outsourced CFO advisory support when you need it. Most small companies don’t have access to a controller or CFO. Owners end up juggling both the management of the business and monitoring of the accounting functions. Outsourcing the management of the accounting functions frees up your valuable time and workload, so you can focus more on building your business. In addition, an outsourced CFO would be able to look at metrics looking for signs of abnormal activity in financial information, as well as offer you sound, strategic and CFO-level insight to help you make more informed financial decisions.

Increasingly, businesses are turning toward outsourcing as their preferred solution. You will find it provides a unique opportunity to receive accounting support from talented professionals without the added overhead associated with in-house resources. With a solid outsourcing strategy, you can tap into some of the best talent in the telecommunications and accounting industry, saving you and your business both time and money.
