In 2012, best-in-class performers will achieve significantly higher growth rates through effective operational management tied to effective financial management reporting.

Ephor Group has today made available a video recap of a “lunch and learn” which discusses the benefits of SaaS cloud financial reporting.

The cloud financials lunch and learn featured Peyton Burch from Intacct, Marcus Wagner from AcctTwo Shared Services, and Garry E. Meier from Ephor Group. Mr. Burch spoke on the benefits of cloud financials via Intacct’s SaaS platform. Mr. Wagner, whose firm is an Intacct consulting partner and provider of business process outsourcing services, revealed how clients are benefiting using cloud financials for better financial reporting, controls, and management reporting support. Mr. Garry E. Meier served as the moderator.

“The adoption rate of cloud financials for small and medium-sized companies is growing at a blazing pace” commented Wagner, CEO of AcctTwo. “Accounting and financial management software deployed via the cloud reduces total cost of ownership, increases the speed of software updates, and provides anywhere, anytime access to reports and dashboards for today’s mobile executives.”

The video recap includes “The ROI Business Case for Using Cloud Financials” including:

  • The financial and operational challenges faced prior to upgrading to a cloud-based solution.
  • The evaluation process of selecting and implementing cloud financials.
  • How to shorten monthly closes, gain visibility into true project P&L and reduce manual processes.

Mr. Garry E. Meier stated that “In 2012, the average service business will grow 4% to 6%; while the best-in-class performers will achieve significantly higher growth rates through effective operational management tied to effective financial management reporting.”

Mr. Meier further commented that “Consistent and scalable revenue and profitability growth depends on accurate and effective delivery of the order to invoice cycle. The most critical need for executives today is to effectively forecast performance. And match resources and priorities accordingly.”

“Management science reporting provides the routine visibility to lead daily performance and outperform the competition”, said Charles Bedard, Director and Partner with Ephor Group. By synching operations and management, cash collection and revenue growth achieves resource efficiency.”
