For accounting firms servicing family office clients, being able to access real-time accurate data is critical. However, too much valuable time can be spent compiling and integrating information from multiple entities or other manual workflows that lack standardization. These tasks can be time-consuming and complex, taking focus away from building more meaningful financial and business insights that support clients in their financial decision-making.
In this webinar, our expert panel will discuss how they are able to increase productivity, drive efficiency, and engage employees by applying CAS best practices to their family office clients. Through an integrated tech stack, they have been able to free up employee time to focus on building key insights that deliver new value for clients. For these firms and family offices, the investment in technology and the investment in staff go hand in hand.

CPA.com was formed by the American Institute of CPAs. AICPA leadership knew the unprecedented pace of technological change required firms to adapt quickly and overcome the challenges of the partnership model to meet that goal. It charged CPA.com management with creating a business model, value proposition and infrastructure to help firms identify emerging trends and technologies and provide education, training and resources that would accelerate adoption.
CPA.com serves as a catalyst in the development of virtual CFO/controller services by firms and is now shifting its focus to similar innovations in tax and audit practices, with an emphasis on automation, artificial intelligence and the adoption of blockchain technology.
