Corefino is the kind of company I would work for if I ever went back to corporate accounting. That is saying a lot, since I hated working at accounting firms. A few weeks ago, I talked to Karen Northup CEO/Founder to Corefino. Most accounting firms have employees that are overworked. Accountants often don’t also have the flexibility to work from home. Many small to medium need accounting but the big accounting firms are too expensive or don’t fit the needs of a start-up or small business. Karen started Corefino as a solution for businesses and accounting professionals. Corefino’s staff is currently 74% female and 26% male employees. Employees both male and female appreciates the company’s quality of life initiative because of the flexibility of work schedules and the ability to work from home. Corefino handles the full spectrum of accounting from accounts payable to sales audit to quarterly filings. They have also leveraged their technology to handle cash transactions. They also provide clients with a dashboard report of profit/loss and cash management. Talking to Karen gave me a sense that accounting can move out of the olden days and be Web 2.0 ready. That’s a cool thing.
