Things change. Some changes are improvements, some are not. Being stagnant is not an option so owning and steering change becomes a competitive advantage. Companies that embrace a culture of continuous improvement recognize that the journey toward perfection is perpetual. It is a cultural goal, not a destination. Outsourced accounting services have emerged as a catalyst for this transformative process, offering more than just cost savings—they provide a strategic advantage in fostering innovation and efficiency. 

The Foundation of Continuous Improvement

Continuous improvement is like a corporate gym membership. The organization talks about it, but few people pursue it. Continuous improvement is a systematic, long-term approach to enhancing services, processes, and products through incremental and breakthrough improvements. It is rooted in the philosophy that every aspect of operations can be improved. This mindset is crucial in accounting, where precision and timeliness are paramount. 

Outsourced Accounting as a Change Agent

Believe it or not, accountants can drive change! Outsourced accounting services bring fresh perspectives and specialized expertise to the table. They are not bound by the ‘this is how we’ve always done it’ mentality, which often hinders innovation within in-house teams. By partnering with a firm like Dean Dorton, which specializes in accounting, companies can tap into a pool of professionals who are continuously exposed to diverse challenges and solutions, thereby bringing in innovative ideas and practices that can trigger a chain reaction of improvements. 

Leveraging Expertise

Your problems may not be as unique as you think they are. Dean Dorton’s outsourced accounting professionals work with a variety of clients, each with their unique problems and challenges. The Dean Dorton team focuses on industries such as equine, healthcare, nonprofit, and family office to provide industry-specific expertise. We are like accounting tourists, collecting souvenirs of best practices and innovative solutions from each client we visit.    

Technology Integration and Automation

The accounting world is not known for having cool toys, but we have some very cool toys. The integration of innovative technologies is a significant aspect of continuous improvement in accounting. Dean Dorton’s outsourced accounting services provide access to advanced software and tools (such as Sage Intacct) that may not be feasible for every company to invest in independently. Our goal is to automate mundane tasks, use tools such as data analytics, dashboards, and key performance indicators to drive better decision-making.
