Our client is a renowned Restaurant Accounting and Hospitality Consulting Solution Company based in Washington, US. Their primary goal is to improve accounting and operations for restaurants with proven strategies and advanced tools.
Scope of Work
Streamline Accounts Payable, General Ledger, and Sales Tax Preparation.
The client approached us with two significant challenges: a heavy workload and financial constraints. Their workload primarily revolved around entry-level tasks such as accounts payable, general ledger, and sales tax management. These essential accounting burdens proved to be overwhelming for their internal team. As a result, the client's team experience a shift in focus from strategic growth initiatives crucial for business expansion.
Furthermore, the client recognized the financial implications of employing a full-time staff member, including recruitment expenses, training costs, and additional benefits. These increased costs had a negative impact on their business's profitability and limited their ability to allocate resources to other critical operational areas.
Cogneesol’s Optimization Solution
Cogneesol implemented a tailored accounting solution that significantly streamlined their workflow and alleviated the heavy workload, enhancing the client's in-house teams' productivity. Leveraging the client's existing software, Plate IQ and Radar, our team quickly adapted these tools to improve their financial operations.
We implemented our solutions in phases:
- Phase 1: We assigned two highly skilled full-time employees (FTEs) exclusively dedicated to handling accounts payable (AP) tasks for 50 restaurants. Our team managed daily invoices, conducted audits, reconciled statements, and monitored bank activities closely.
- Phase 2: Our exemplary performance delighted the client, expanding our responsibilities. We provided 5 FTEs more to streamline general ledger (GL) tasks such as cash flow management, payroll, inventory, expense tracking, and more.
- Phase 3: We assigned two more FTEs to assist the client with sales tax preparation, including calculations and reporting.
Our team extended from 2 FTEs to 13 FTEs for 150+ restaurants, which resulted in efficient workload distribution. Finally, the client could focus on strategic growth initiatives while simultaneously ensuring the seamless management of their financial operations.
