After years of honing his expertise as a financial consultant for small businesses in Vermont, Michael Ly founded Reconciled, not just another bookkeeping firm, but a beacon of innovation and superior service in the financial industry.
Reconciled stands out as a full-service virtual bookkeeping firm that provides busy business owners and entrepreneurs not only meticulous internal accounting but also comprehensive financial analysis, delivered by a team of consummate professionals. At the forefront of the industry, Reconciled exemplifies what it means to be one of the most innovative and rapidly expanding firms today.
Key Challenge: Expanding Advisory Services
At first, Reconciled focused mainly on cloud-based remote bookkeeping services. However, as the founder of a forward-thinking firm, Michael understood that advisory services were the key to accelerated growth for Reconciled. As a result, he created a clear vision of expanding its advisory offerings to better serve its clients.
But the firm faced a significant roadblock: their team was already operating at full capacity, with no bandwidth to take on additional advisory work. The existing staff was maxed out, and hiring more accountants was not a straightforward option. They needed a way to enhance their efficiency and make the most of their existing resources.
The Solution? Clockwork’s Fast & Efficient AI
Reconciled once again affirmed its forward-thinking ethos by embracing Clockwork. With the team’s keen eye for strategic advancement, Reconciled adeptly integrated Clockwork into their workflow, revolutionizing their advisory services. This strategic move underscored their leading role in the sector, showcasing their ability to identify and implement groundbreaking solutions.
Clockwork, the only FP&A software founded by a former outsourced CFO who successfully scaled his own advisory services, rose to meet Reconciled's high standards. The result was nothing short of extraordinary: each advisory client was transitioned to Clockwork within a swift 30-day period, epitomizing Reconciled's commitment to excellence and innovation.
The Business Impact
In the first month alone, Reconciled saved 120 hours of work, a significant time-saving that was previously unthinkable. This efficiency gain also translated into a substantial increase in clients, with the firm even adding to its advisory clients in just three months.
Remarkably, this growth was achieved without any additional hiring costs. Leveraging Clockwork not only enhanced the firm's margins, but also generated better revenue, ultimately leading to a 25% increase in their advisory business. The team at Reconciled continue to unlock the potential of their advisory services, setting the stage for continued success and growth.
Boosting advisory services even higher! By using Clockwork’s game-changing features, like cash flow forecasting, “what if” scenario writing, payroll integrations, and more, Reconciled has taken some weight off of their accountants, allowing them to fill clients’ needs for advisory services.
