Case Study
An established health care center preparing for an upcoming acquisition was in need of human resource, finance and operational support.  Citrin Cooperman’s Office of the CFO team was able to provide support to the finance and business department structure and create policies and roles. We acted as the onsite Interim Finance Director, where we transitioned and automated payroll and accounts payable systems, created financial reports for use during acquisition, assisted in onboarding of a new controller, evaluated and assessed current personnel for post-acquisition roles, and assisted in search and interview process for new employees.  In the end, we were able to onboard and train a new senior management team and create structures and controls to help ensure the facility was ready for purchase.
 
Case Study
A large privately held real estate development company was in need of centralized financial reporting to consolidate cash flow statements. The Citrin Cooperman Office of the CFO team assessed their accounting systems and built a blue print to identify new financial reporting protocols.  The team also designed a multipurpose database that funneled data from three different accounting systems to generate reports and customized a multi-functional financial application that consolidated 50+ accounting ledgers into relevant cash flow reports/statements.  This allowed the client to streamline a highly manual and labor-intensive process for maximum efficiency and reduced time and resources dedicated to the process significantly.
