Course Description

AICPA PCPS Survey 2019 reaffirmed staffing as the #1 challenge for the accounting industry. Big 4 & larger accounting firms realized this in early 1990s and decided to leverage offshore staffing for acquiring & retaining qualified and experienced professionals in emerging economies. As the technological advancements, internet & innovation made communication and document sharing simpler, faster and easier, they reaped great benefits and continue to do so. Yet small, mid-size & regional accounting firms couldn’t follow their footsteps and haven't been able to reap similar benefits. Entigrity has helped 500+ accounting firms nationwide with offshore staffing helping them build capacity to take up more incoming work, reduce workload of existing staff & gain sustainable competitive advantage.
