Many real estate and construction businesses are revisiting their operations as they restart after the pandemic. Some have had to make changes to their staffing and they’re managing the same business with a smaller finance team. If you find yourself in this situation, you’re probably asking: how am I supposed to do more with less?

The answer you’re looking for is here: ease. Our accounting and bookkeeping platform can keep your business finances running as well or better as you had them prior to COVID-19.

I’ve lost my finance team. What can I do?

We know some real estate & construction businesses have had to lay off staff and now they’re navigating what this means for operations. If you’ve laid off members of your finance team, ease can fill the gaps. Our platform allows us to set up and quickly get up to speed with your financials. We integrate into your current processes to minimize disruption and identify opportunities for efficiencies. You receive the same information and deliverables as always just as fast, if not faster, than before.

Ease is a cloud-based platform, meaning your information is available anywhere with an internet connection. Our team does not need to be on-site to help with finances, and you can check the finances from wherever you go.

I still have a finance team but it’s smaller than before. How can ease help?

If you’ve scaled down your finance team, ease can support the staff with its built-in automation tools. Finance work can involve repetitive and time-consuming processes, like payroll, expense tracking, or invoicing. With ease, you can automate parts of these tasks, freeing up time for your team members to contribute to larger goals that help your organization find its way forward. The automation can also help you get the information you need faster, taking one less worry out of your day-to-day.

I need help understanding my business finances, and I don’t have the skills in-house. What can ease do?

With ease, you get a modern accounting and bookkeeping platform and the help of a business advisor from MNP. The information you get from ease is only as powerful as your ability to put it into action – that’s where our advisors come in. We can help you make sense of the data and develop action plans based off the information. This allows you to make decisions with confidence and understand how those choices impact your business moving forward.

Your advisor answers questions fast, too. They can log in and see the same data you see, allowing them to provide the answers you need wherever they are.
