  • 9 minute read

The finance and accounting department is the backbone of every business, no matter how big or small. And no matter if it’s an in-house department or a financial services company working for their clients as an outsourced department.

This is the department that is solely responsible for not just ensuring efficient financial management but, most notably, the financial controls necessary to support all business activities.

People running this all-important department need to understand every aspect of the business so that they can, in turn, develop a solid financial strategy that will support all other facets of the business and ultimately ensure that the business goals are achieved.

Core Functions

This department plays a pivotal function in an organization. It is responsible for safely keeping records of accounts payable and receivable, inventory, payroll, fixed assets, and all other financial elements. A finance clerk or a bookkeeper deals with the everyday transactions in a business.

Some of its key roles include ensuring the business or organization obeys the law, making sure that its operations comply with the law, failure to which could lead to all sorts of unnecessary run-ins with the authorities.

Dealing with the pandemic

During the pandemic, everything has taken a hard hit, and among the industries adversely affected was the finance and accounting industry.

Now, the finance and accounting departments globally are currently facing many challenges as they look for cost-effective ways to keep businesses afloat in these dire situations.

The question remains: how can this industry survive this global crisis? What methods or techniques can they possibly use to ensure that their operations do not come to grinding halt? How can they ensure a smooth flow of finance that will, in turn, guarantee that the business remains on its growth trajectory?

Salesforce for Constant Contact Success Story

The Silver Grove Financial Group has successfully used the Salesforce to Constant Contact integration.

They use Salesforce to drive leads to the Constant Contacts Lists for marketing automation and follow up. Thus, each financial advisor can then send their own unique emails to prospective customers easily.

Why does this matter?

Because personalization is what every customer wants! Especially when it comes to sensitive information like…financial records!

You want to know that your accountant took the time to review every record and every receipt. Attention to detail is crucial in this field. So when an accounting company can prove their dedication to you even before you’re a paying customer, they’ve won half the battle!

But here’s what’s really interesting about this story: our subscriber only uses SyncApps by Cazoomi for a few of their leads.

Why, you ask?

Any financial company knows the importance of being able to add the LPL logo to your marketing collaterals. Silver Grove chose the SyncApps by Cazoomi integration so they can easily use their own unique, local branding using Constant Contact with LPL approved marketing collateral — a service offered through our long-standing partnership with Constant Contact.
