Finvisor was struggling with comprehensive visibility into close processes and status across their client portfolio in one system. Lack of visibility into the close impeded team and client expansion, hindered process enhancements, and added stress to meeting client deliverables. This challenge stemmed from fragmented documentation, isolated client information, offline collaboration, and the manual upkeep of schedules, all of which compounded the issue.
The Finvisor team tried several project management tools to manage close tasks and found that they lacked the ability to effectively reflect the accounting work to be done or add efficiencies to processes.
Finvisor adopted Avise as their go-to solution. Avise enables the Finvisor team to centrally manage close processes across the client portfolio and significantly improve efficiencies across workflows. Avise’s 2-way integration with QBO has been especially valuable in allowing the team to bring the full close into one system, eliminating manual excel work and the need for other tools.
Avise empowers the Finvisor team with one-click access to a complete view of the GL, close activity, and work papers. The team is able to easily track the status of the client portfolio using the Avise dashboard, work with team members on individual clients using Avise task management, and add efficiencies using Avise automation features.
