Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 28, 2014
With a higher demand for assurance and compliance services originating from the India sub-continent, Director Neil Gonsalves hopes to further expand A-lign’s assurance and compliance services in India.
“I’ve personally witnessed the demand substantially increase,” said Gonsalves, who began his career at Ernst & Young India several years ago, where he performed, what is believed to be, the first SAS 70 examination completed in India. “As we begin to serve more clients in India, we want to make them aware of our service offerings and the value we can bring to the table in the most effective but yet cost efficient manner.”
Although A-lign’s headquarters is based in the U.S., Gonsalves advises that their services still remain price competitive, “Unlike the large accounting firms, we do not have significant overheads. We operate very efficiently. Our clients pay purely for our time that we spend serving them and for the significant value we add to their business.”
As Gonsalves leads an SSAE 16 examination in India for a large IT services company this week, he hopes to continue to build A-lign’s presence in India. A-lign encourages companies in India who would be interested in a proposal for similar services to email Gonsalves directly at neil.gonsalves(at)a-lign(dot)com.
