Accounting Automation

“We looked at the cost benefit of bringing someone onboard and building an internal team versus leveraging a company like ScaleNorth, and decided to take the BPO path.”

Accounting services for small businesses by ScaleNorth

How It Works

ScaleNorth provides small businesses with accounting services utilizing the NetSuite platform. We’ll carve out NetSuite user licenses for your business, allowing us to run your accounting on NetSuite without the need to undergo a full NetSuite implementation.

We will then “lift & shift” your accounting from your current platform (i.e. QuickBooks) over to NetSuite’s powerful accounting solution so that our CPAs can run your needed accounting functions.

You’ll have a dedicated team of accounting experts that you can access via live chat, phone or Zoom, and email during normal business hours.

As an added bonus, select members of your team will get NetSuite access, so you can embrace the power of the world’s leading cloud-based ERP system without having licenses of your own.

Who It’s For

Is Your Business:

  • Operating on QuickBooks or another basic accounting platform?
  • Experiencing (or planning to experience) a growth trend?
  • Looking to streamline the accounting department?
  • In need of a scalable accounting solution?
  • Needing to bring on experienced accounting staff without the hefty price tag?

If you can answer “Yes” to one or more of the items above, ScaleNorth’s flexible outsourced accounting service for small growing businesses is right for you.

Outsourced Accounting (BPO) FAQ’s

Do I need to have NetSuite licenses?

No! While ScaleNorth is an industry leading NetSuite accounting firm, the BPO program allows us to sublicense NetSuite and run the accounting functions of businesses that have not implemented NetSuite.

Will I need to implement NetSuite?

Getting your company setup for running accounting on NetSuite is a simple “lift and shift”. This is far less time intensive than a full-scale NetSuite implementation. This is a quick process that will allow our certified accountants to quickly take over your accounting functions while unlocking the power of NetSuite for your business.

Are there monthly minimums?

ScaleNorth’s outsourced accounting program aims to be accessible to all small businesses. Our accounting services have low monthly minimums and we’ll work with you to craft a cost-effective package that drives value for your business.

If I end up wanting a full-scale NetSuite implementation in the future, can ScaleNorth help?

Yes! ScaleNorth is one of the top NetSuite Solution Providers, and is authorized to sell, implement, and optimize the NetSuite platform. If we are already running your accounting through our BPO program, a full-scale implementation becomes much more streamlined for you and the team.

How quickly can you get started?

Our team can usually get up and running in a matter of days. The onboarding time is significantly less than the time required to hire internal accounting staff.
