Meet Eventus Advisory Group
Eventus Advisory Group
Eventus Advisory Group was founded on the belief that growing & mid-sized firms have the same need for top quality finance and accounting work as large firms, except they don’t have the budget/volume of business yet to hire a full-time team. Eventus solves that problem by providing everything from leadership to operational finance and accounting, on-demand. With staff located across the U.S., they are able to help anywhere at any time—so you can have the right solution, at the right time, at the right price.

Eventus Advisory Group on Modern Accounting
The concept of modern accounting is a bit of a misnomer. There are some standard/classic questions that are must haves: Can they do the work? Are they keeping up to the latest rules and regulations? Do they use the latest technology? These things aren’t modern, but necessary for success at all times. But to be truly modern “today” means do you have online connectivity, remote management, little to no reliance on paper-based processes, scalability, easy linkage of accounting data to analytics. Being modern is being able to handle anything a client throws at you that is new and different.
Everyone is different, but for Eventus, it is a cloud based general ledger, AP software and billing applications. It allows for easy, remote, instantaneous, and scale-able access to data as well as allows a scale-able, more efficient and economic finance and accounting operation.
