Our AP Outsource Consultant’s Excel skills were outstanding and their attention to detail and analytical approach allowed them to be impactful in a very short period of time.

Our AP Outsource Consultant helped fill a gap as our FP&A Manager left the organization to take a new opportunity. They had two weeks of training with our departing FP&A Manager and did so without impacting the regular reporting cadence to management and the board. They also enhanced some of the reporting in their time with us and also trained the incoming Director of FP&A. I could not have been more pleased with what the Consultant delivered in terms of work product. It was always on-time with minimal oversight needed. They worked through the data set and given their broader experience in FP&A, was often able to work through issues and only brought questions to our meetings after they had exhausted his resources.

AP Outsource Consultant filled in seamlessly; We lost an experienced Sr. Finance and Accounting Manager and needed a resource that could step in and quickly learn and execute a fairly complex monthly reporting process that included multiple systems, complex Excel spreadsheets, tight timelines and coordination with many constituents. AP Outsource Consultant had 3+ days of crossover (as well as written documentation and video tutorials) and was able to successfully complete the close as well as assist in the estimate and budget processes.

Very strong systems skills; outstanding Excel/Microsoft skills; strong accounting and financial analysis. Overall a very good candidate.
