About

Cloud computing has become ubiquitous in our personal and professional lives, with must-have applications like iTunes for entertainment, Google for document management and ADP for payroll.  For the finance department, cloud accounting software provides numerous tools to streamline accounting functions, including the general ledger (GL), multi-currency transactions, budgeting and forecasting, and equity administration. Cloud solutions offer the flexibility to be customized to work the way you do, and the capability to integrate with nearly any software package.

Shrinking technology budgets mean that businesses look to the cloud for agile IT solutions without prohibitive upfront costs. They can be especially effective for fast-growing companies that want to keep their employees engaged with the latest technology tools and anytime/anywhere access to their business-critical applications. And because cloud solutions are continuously and seamlessly updated, you always have the latest technology and feature set.

Our cloud solutions include:

Accounting/ERP:  Enterprise resource management (ERP) software is the cornerstone of any growing organization's suite of cloud accounting tools. Our cloud ERP solutions enable you to track accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, billing and other crucial information in the most efficient and accurate way possible.

Audit Security Compliance: Regulations are constantly evolving, making compliance an ongoing challenge. The Fastpath cloud compliance solution integrates directly with your ERP system to automate regulatory compliance and help you meet ever-shifting requirements. Our experienced team can implement Fastpath within weeks, giving you the peace of mind that comes with timely audit compliance.

Budgeting, Forecasting and Financial Planning: Our certified Adaptive Insights development and implementation team is the largest in the nation and includes experienced CPAs and former CFOs with extensive finance backgrounds. These experts can help you streamline your finance functions, so you can spend more time strategically supporting business objectives.

Business Intelligence: Used wisely, business intelligence (BI) tools can give you a huge competitive advantage. Customization is the key to getting maximum value from your BI software, and Armanino has the deep, industry-specific experience and technical expertise to help you select the best cloud BI tools, tailor a solution that meets your specific needs and implement it, quickly and cost-effectively.

CRM: Customer relationship management (CRM) software provides the critical link between your customers and your sales, marketing and customer service teams. Whether you’re looking at a new implementation or considering replacing an existing system, our veteran team can help you select and implement a cloud CRM solution that’s customized to the needs of your industry and your company.

Revenue Recognition: Armanino’s experience with more than 1,500 successful business application evaluations and implementations sets us apart from other accounting firms. Our revenue accounting experts will conduct a strategic evaluation of your existing systems and team, and your specific requirements for compliance with the new ASC 606 and IFRS 15 guidelines. Then we help you select and put in place the proper solution to manage revenue recognition and support your future growth.

Spend Management Procurement: The Coupa finance cloud solution makes your accounts payable (AP) process truly paperless, enabling you to immediately start generating both hard-dollar and efficiency savings by eliminating errors from manual processing. Our experienced team can not only implement Coupa, but also integrate it with your core ERP system to deliver increased productivity and full automation.

Stock-Based Accounting: Deploying the scalable Certent Equity Management software platform, our experts help you decrease the number of hours your team devotes to spreadsheet tracking and accounting of stock options, saving you time and greatly reducing your errors from manual re-entry.

Cloud & Regulatory Compliance

Every day, organizations are recognizing and adopting the cloud for its elastic, affordable and mobile capabilities. As leaders think of their new, cutting-edge IT infrastructure in the cloud, they also need to consider their internal control environment, including Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance, and how it is impacted by moving to the cloud.  For fast growing, pre-IPO companies, ensuring that internal controls related to financial reporting comply with all aspects of SOX is critical. Increasingly, the state of a company’s internal control environment is something that the investment community is watching closely.
