Aprio’s Analytics Operational Transformation - Lior Baron, Aprio, LLP
Members Only

In this session we will review how improved analytics caused Aprio’s leadership to modify it’s operating model, identify and address challenges with information systems and shift focus from purely hours and billing statistics into strategic KPIs, value based utilization and work planning. The transformation was enabled via three pillars – Technology enablement, process automation and data visualization. Aprio was able to increase both back office utilization and quality of information using modern technology with minimal impact to IT infrastructure by leveraging a dedicated team who is both internally and client facing. The success of the transformation allows Aprio to bring their clients along the analytics transformation journey by providing client services focused on improving finance and back office operation effectiveness, along with enhancing management’s insight into organizational information.

Creating a Positive Customer Experience that Leads to Long-Term Loyalty
Members Only

The concept of customer experience has been around since the first time someone sold something to someone else. But the idea of being incredibly intentional about it is relatively new to the accounting profession. Going far beyond an annual client satisfaction survey, true disciples of creating a unique and lasting customer experience know it takes a good deal of planning, regular input from your clients and the buy-in of your entire organization. In this session, we will hear from panelists in different industries about their view of customer experience, how they created and implemented it, and the results of their efforts. The session also discusses what it takes to implement this at your own firm, pitfalls to avoid, and what you can realistically expect in terms of loyalty and growth.
