Strengthen advisory services with critical analysis tools

Not only can Accountant Connect help boost the efficiency of your traditional tax & accounting practice, you also get access to exclusive tools that can help strengthen strategic advisory services, positioning your firm for increased growth and revenue in the years ahead.

Compensation Benchmarking: Show your clients their value… and yours

Compensation Benchmarking, powered by ADP DataCloud, gives your firm access to exclusive compensation insights from ADP’s payroll base that can help your clients stay competitive.

Provide your clients with accurate insights about real trends in compensation – comparing them to similar companies as well as the greater market – to help them make more informed decisions.

Compensation Benchmarking can be used as a powerful tool to advise your clients in a number of ways:

  • Offer an annual employee compensation review, from salary & bonus to overtime costs
  • Analysis of compensation strategy to help improve retention and reduce turnover
  • Help determine fair & reasonable compensation for S Corp shareholders

“Compensation benchmark data in Accountant Connect helped us save a client nearly $600,000 within one year, by identifying product lines that were underperforming based on benchmarking and performing an analysis on their labor rates.”

David Rim, Senior Manager
Mazars USA LLP
