Cloud Solutions


Just as you can count on technology to keep changing, you can count on Armanino to keep your technology current with the latest and best of breed Cloud solutions.

Our team—CPAs, certified implementers, developers, former CFOs and controllers—will keep your technology resources integrated and aligned with the financials that drive your growth and efficiency.


Cloud computing has become ubiquitous in our personal and professional lives with must-have applications like iTunes for entertainment, Google for document management and ADP for payroll.  Research from the Cloud Accounting Institute reveals that after major growth in adoption rates over the past several years, cloud solutions are now considered mainstream and are in wide usage, with 73 percent of survey respondents indicating their companies currently use Software as a Service (SaaS) or Cloud solutions.  

For the finance department, this means that numerous tools in the Cloud are available to streamline accounting functions — everything from GL to multi-currency transactions, equity administration to budgeting and forecasting. Cloud solutions offer the flexibility to be customized to work the way you do, and the capability to integrate with nearly any software package. Dwindling technology budgets mean businesses look to the Cloud for agile IT solutions without prohibitive upfront costs.  They can be especially effective for fast-growing companies who want to keep their employees engaged with the latest technology tools and anytime, anywhere access to their business-critical applications. Cloud solutions are continuously and seamlessly updated ensuring you always have the latest technology and feature set.


Armanino offers a full spectrum of services to guide your organization to optimal efficiency and provide you with a return on investment (ROI) on your cloud solutions.

Cloud Strategy

Your company is in the cloud. Now what?  Led by Cloud solutions industry veteran Dave Burlington, Armanino’s team of Cloud consultants will help you make the most of your existing cloud investment, while mapping a winning game plan for the future. 


Cloud Systems Implementation

Armanino leads the best-of-breed Cloud revolution, with a fully certified team of implementation specialists who began their careers in your shoes.  Our former CFOs, controllers and FP&A managers share their industry best practices and process re-engineering expertise with your team.


Cloud Systems Integration

The Cloud has changed who can purchase technology since line-of-business leaders now have access to new applications in a matter of minutes. The result? Silos of cloud applications. Armanino brings greater ROI to your organization by combining these cloud islands into an integrated, responsive and agile technology nerve center for the business. Armanino’s integration solutions and expertise will ensure that your cloud systems are integrated in a way that is optimized to meet your business goals.


CFOs Control the Cloud Strategy

Cloud solutions allow CFOs to replace the leadership role of the IT department and move quickly, and cost effectively, to prioritize the needs of your changing business. Modern Cloud architecture enables CFOs to implement integrated, best-of-breed solutions in a way not previously possible. To take advantage of your new role as “conductor” of your organization’s Cloud environment, you need a partner to help navigate the opportunities and challenges.


Cloud & Regulatory Compliance

Every day, organizations are recognizing and adopting the cloud for its elastic, affordable, and mobile capabilities. As leaders think of their new, cutting edge IT infrastructure in the cloud, they also need to consider their internal control environment (including Sarbanes-Oxley compliance) and how it is impacted by moving to the cloud.  For fast growing, Pre-IPO companies, ensuring internal controls related to financial reporting comply with all aspects of the SOX Act is critical. There is increasing evidence that the state of a company’s internal control environment is something that the investment community is watching more closely.




Software & SaaS Companies

Software & SaaS Companies

Software as a Service (SaaS) companies face revenue recognition and cost capitalization issues, state sales and use tax questions, and a host of other complex challenges. Armanino has the real-world experience and technical expertise to meet their specialized needs. We help clients swiftly solve immediate problems and clarify the long-term strategies required to manage change and grow their business.



Nonprofit organizations have specialized audit, tax and operational needs that require specialized service.  Armanino has been committed to the nonprofit sector since 1953, and we now work with more than 450 nonprofit clients. This hands-on experience gives our staff of CPAs and former CFOs a deeper understanding of the issues nonprofits face, so we’re able to meet their needs and help them fulfill their missions in the most efficient, cost-effective way possible.

Professional Services

Professional Services

To succeed in a highly competitive marketplace, professional services firms must meet their clients’ high expectations, manage their own day-to-day financial pressures and think strategically. Armanino helps a wide range of service businesses satisfy their clients’ evolving needs, operate more efficiently and build long-term strategies for success.
