accountants offer? Tom Hammond Vice president of corporate strategy and product management Paychex Inc.
How do payroll services fit with the other services
I’ve spent a lot of time this year carefully listening to the needs of accountants. What I’ve found is that their practices are evolving … rapidly. The accountant of today is expanding their portfolio, but one thing remains consistent: their position as a trusted advisor. Some are focused on providing businesses with a virtual CFO. At the center of this offering is an accounting ecosystem fueled by data. Payroll information is just one component of that ecosystem. Partnering with a leader in overall HR services provides differentiation and another opportunity to showcase your value as a trusted advisor.
How are you helping accountants combine or expand those service offerings?
