Getting ready to pitch a plan for consulting services to be offered by our firm. I have initial thoughts for what I've seen as a need in our market. Is there one or two things that you wish your clients would work with accounting consultants to improve? Or if you are working at a company, one or two things that you struggle with when it comes to closing your books timely every month, being prepared for audits, or even information you struggle to get out of your system in a usable manner?

Yeah I suppose it kind of does. I think I'd be going for something scalable as far as how far someone wanted to take it. Some people can't afford to automate everything, but they can make some simple improvements to make their jobs easier. As a nerd that loves to automate things though, blackline sounds great

Good luck

Thank you!
