Accounting and Outsourcing

Business Process Outsourcing: The Competitive Advantage by Rick Click & Thomas Duening

Global competition doesn't just move jobs, it also moves business processes and creates new kinds of business cooperation. For more than a century companies with global reach had to grow into huge enterprises with massive internal infrastructure. With the rise of computer systems, smaller companies learned to share the large mainframes to lower the cost for each business. Specialized providers went into business to offer their systems and expertise so that businesses could focus on their value proposition rather than their information technology.

This outsourcing of non-core operations has expanded to many other kinds of business processes such as human resources and even some aspects of accounting. Some businesses are even creating new value propositions by combining their specialized abilities with those of another company in order for each to have a more powerful offering for their target markets. This is especially true as companies extend their reach around the globe.

Rick Click and Thomas Duening show you how this process works and what you need to do and consider so you can identify which processes you might want to outsource to lower your costs and extend your reach. While this is a practical introduction, it is meant for the general business person having to learn about BPO and having to get up to speed about what has to be done to get it right.

Accounting and Outsourcing * Businesses Need Accounting

Accounting - All Businesses Need One.   
Article Submissions

As business becomes more and more global, and complexities continue to emerge, certain fields have gained prominence in today's career market.

One of these is accounting. Accounting is a very conceptual career or task, more a question of information handling than any hands-on approach to product development. However, as trends change, accounting is becoming a little more diverse and less just a question of 'crunching numbers'.

These days, there are specific kinds of accountants who do separate jobs as part of a given company. There are accountants who monitor spending and resource use; these are called 'audit' accountants. Then there are other professionals who use accounting information to guide procedures and to facilitate decision-making, and these are referred to as 'management' accountants.

One could say that while audit accountants are involved in book-keeping history, management accounting is a process of looking to the future to try to foresee events and plan for these in terms of a company's resources. 'Ledgers' and classic ideas of accounting belong more to audit accounting, while management accounting deals directly with the machinery of a firm. Both positions require people skills and analytical skills; both types of accountants need to know how to use computers. Spreadsheet software like Microsoft Excel is popular in keeping accounting information available in a flexible format.

As to the issue of how the two are related, audit accounting is often considered more essential to small businesses. A small business may not need any more oversight than the owner or general manager can provide, but someone always had to keep the books. Also, in management, the old adage may apply that 'too many cooks spoil the broth'. Management accounting seems to be a more useful role in large companies that need many consultants to micro-manage a variety of projects.
In general, accounting is becoming a popular career choice. Some may shy away from it due to an aversion to how accountants have been described in the past. Some people 'don't like numbers' and consider accounting work to be unbearably dry or tedious. Others, however, have already completed their degree to become a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and these may find themselves well placed in high-profile audit accounting positions. For others, management accounting provides a new look at a classic career.

Either way, the study of this valuable field can be a good way to get into a certain kind of company. many companies are hiring temporary accountants, and the abundance of opportunities means that employers and university graduates may be able to find each other through the phenomenon of accounting, as the majority of businesses turn their efforts toward the study of resource allocation, asset management, or more simply, crunching numbers.
