Why Accounting Professionals Love Collaborative Accounting

The heart of advisory really is collaboration. That’s just understanding what the business owner is going through, where they’re trying to go, and being able just to tell them…….this is what we think you should do, and here is why

Chris Hervochon


“I don’t think it’s focused on how we can get the client to do more work. That’s not really what it is. It’s really, how can we get both sides in the relationship to do the things that are most valuable in the relationship that we’re building with our clients”

It not only gives the clients transparency into our tasks but it gives us transparency into the client’s workflow and how they’re going to earn money. And so, that can now help us to advise them on how to get paid
