Smart business crystallizes as exceptional client service in the everyday life of BDO, one of the world’s largest accounting and consulting organisations. But what does it mean for us?
– Providing smart business services is not just an extra from us; it’s our primary focus. We want to understand what our clients feel is essential, from their point of view, in order to be able to offer the best expertise and in-depth industry insight,” emphasizes Eija Kuittinen, Leader, Corporate Finance and Transactions.
The service options offered by BDO are Audit, Tax & Legal, Business Services & Outsourcing, and Advisory services.
Audits identify development areas
Auditor Joonas Selenius agrees.
– In my mind, a statutory audit is an excellent chance to identify development areas in the client’s processes. For example, it could mean a risk assessment, where one reduces the risks of irregularities in the purchasing and sales processes.
– It may astonish somebody to hear that auditing is a place for innovation; but it is exactly that for us, because we live the client’s everyday life through the figures, Kuittinen adds.
Experience + fresh eyes = works!
Exceptional client service also means that experienced professionals and young experts work hard, together, in the best interests of the client.
– It’s a fine thing that young doers have space for innovations of their own here. I also appreciate that our company is at the very cutting edge of technology,” Selenius states.
Internationalization also adds an additional competitive edge to expert work. BDO is a global company that works in 158 countries with more than 67 000 professionals. Of these, 170 top experts work in Finland.
