Allinial Global, the world’s second largest accounting association, is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with Fieldguide, a risk advisory services (RAS) technology solution provider. Fieldguide’s RAS platform helps audit and advisory firms overcome today’s most urgent challenges of staff shortages, proliferating compliance standards, and clients demanding more streamlined risk management.
“The Allinial Global team is pleased and proud to announce our strategic partnership with Fieldguide,” said Mark Koziel, President & CEO of Allinial Global. “Our mission is to constantly seek out ways to help our members further differentiate themselves as leaders in the industry. Fieldguide’s technology is doing exactly that for any firm that is currently providing or planning to provide Risk Advisory Services. With the increasing demand for risk advisory services and the shortage of talent, Fieldguide has come along at just the right time.”
“We are honored to be a part of Allinial Global and offer its members a modern and streamlined approach to manage risk and compliance engagements for their clients,” said Jin Chang, Chief Executive Officer of Fieldguide. “As former practitioners ourselves, the team and I understand how painful audits can be for all parties, and we built Fieldguide expressly to eliminate as much of that pain as possible. The results have been astounding. Our customers tell us they are seeing significant efficiency gains, which have translated into higher margins, better client experiences, and happier employees.”
Fieldguide is already working with a number of Allinial Global firms, including Holbrook & Manter (H&M). In an environment with increased awareness of cybersecurity threats, the demand for H&M’s risk advisory practice is growing rapidly. To address this growth, Pete Rife, Director of Technology Risk Advisory, knew his practice needed a new, integrated solution to manage engagements and deliver more profitably.
“With Fieldguide’s single point of truth across engagements, all audit workflow steps are now integrated across one platform,” said Rife. “No longer is there a need to download a single document or artifact or upload a single request file or checklist. Instead of managing a separate document request solution along with an engagement binder, the team can easily track files and their versions in the context they are needed.”
