CPA Firms can Rely on "SAVE" to Advise E-tailers
Many CPAs have firms as clients who conduct business over the Internet, especially retailers and others fully engaged in E-Commerce, but how equipped are small- to medium-size CPA firms in helping their clients evaluate an online strategy?
KPMG has developed its new SAVED! service as a way to diagnose an e-tailer's strategy by reviewing the company's operations in areas like order management, call center operations, fulfillment and customer returns.
The turnaround for the service is expected to take an average of 90 days from the point KPMG is first engaged to do the evaluation, and includes four key areas: an operational review, identifying core processes and supporting technology, developing observations and recommendation, and an executive presentation or final report.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
