Having already achieved a significant presence in the United States including the Virgin Islands, A-lign has also performed compliance reviews for companies in Canada, France, and Great Britain. “India is a significant player in the outsourcing / co-sourcing market with many world class organizations delivering services to customers across the globe. We look forward to being able to serve these companies as their Service Auditor and to establishing ourselves as a leading firm of assurance and compliance services in India.” stated Neil Gonsalves. “We hope to be the firm of choice as more companies are being requested to comply with these standards.”
Ramaraj Duraisamy, Invenger Technologies’ Chief Technology Officer commented “We had a great experience working with Neil Gonsalves and A-lign CPAs. Neil demonstrated a thorough understanding of our processes and how we work with our clients in the US which ultimately resulted in the effective and efficient execution of SSAE 16 examination for us. His extensive experience of SSAE 16 and more importantly working with companies in India was very evident throughout the process. The SSAE 16 final report was delivered to us timely and of good quality.”
