ATLANTA, November 10, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Allinial Global, the world's second largest accounting association, is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with Fieldguide, the category-defining Risk Advisory Services (RAS) technology solution provider. Fieldguide's award-winning 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.
Mark Koziel, President & CEO of Allinial Global, had this to say:
"The Allinial Global team is pleased and proud to announce our strategic partnership with Fieldguide. 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."
Jin Chang, Chief Executive Officer of Fieldguide, stated:
"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. 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.
According to Mr. Rife:
"With Fieldguide's single point of truth across engagements, all audit workflow steps are now integrated across one platform. 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."
Fieldguide is backed by top venture capitalists such as 8VC, Y Combinator, Floodgate, Point72 Ventures, DNX Ventures, Global Founders Capital, AICPA/CPA.com, and more. Fieldguide is a comprehensive and client-friendly platform that manages the entire engagement lifecycle for any compliance framework, including SOC, HIPAA, PCI, HITRUST, ISO, NIST, SOX, and dozens more. For two years in a row, Fieldguide has been recognized by Accounting Today, receiving the Accounting Today 2022 Top New Products Award and the CPA Practice Advisor 2022 Technology Innovation Award.
