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.
