Benefits of Working with CCS

STRATEGY  Technology is dynamic, so it requires tremendous time and energy to stay on top of the latest available IT tools and techniques to support an accounting firm’s operations. CCS has the skilled staff and collective expertise to ensure you are at the forefront of technology usage and provide crucial insights into optimal IT strategy. Far from a mere outsourcing relationship, working with CCS now means having a trusted advisor/provider sitting next to your CIO and providing high-level strategic counsel.

INFORMATION GOVERNANCE  Accounting firms are subject to a unique level of scrutiny regarding managing the information lifecycle because they typically manage troves of susceptible client information. CCS will help formulate, implement, and monitor data retention policies and other delicate information management protocols.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT  Of course, the core responsibility of any managed IT services provider continues to be the “blocking and tackling” duties associated with the day-to-day upkeep of the firm’s IT ecosystem. You purchase a service-level agreement to deliver your IT infrastructure so internal resources can refocus on higher-value initiatives. CCS will manage your IT infrastructure, software applications and user support requirements so effectively that your team members can truly relinquish those burdens. This frees up your time and budget for other, higher-value efforts.

DATA SECURITY  The bane of every accounting firm CIO’s existence is the ongoing challenge of maintaining data security, a nightmare that has been brought to life by some very high-profile breaches at accounting firms in recent years. Working with CCS will allow you to flip the script in data security and become proactive—rather than reactive—by deploying state-of-the-art cybersecurity measures along your firm’s IT perimeter, locking down the hardware in use, and implementing a consistent data security approach that cuts across all software applications, email, instant messaging, etc. This proactive approach yields quicker server patching, more consistent data back-ups, more disciplined system monitoring and faster notifications of potential threats detected.

CCS can help you focus your efforts on the applications that drive real value to your firm, such as analytics, artificial intelligence, knowledge management, and client service delivery.
