Approach to Advisory Services

We understand your needs go beyond financial reporting, so we provide solutions that go beyond what a traditional CPA offers. With your teams spread so thin these days, it’s tough to find time for the tasks that keep your athletics department going. Partnering with us means we can tackle them for you.

That’s where our Ticket Office Advisory services come in to play. Sometimes you just need the advice of an industry expert, or you may need help with a particular project. Regardless of which, we take a holistic approach to help you transform your organization and get sustainable results.

Our team provides a fresh look at your current business practices through two lenses:

Peace of Mind:

We provide a closer look at select areas of concern that’s more customized than an NCAA agreed-upon procedures, but without the sweeping examination of an audit. We know even the most subtle red flags that can signal a bigger issue.

By putting our experience to work, you can have peace of mind as you develop solid business practices in your ticket office.

Operational Excellence:

Tackling internal controls is a challenge unto itself. When you couple that with redundant processes and wasted efforts, it costs time and money. We can help you identify ways to better utilize your resources so you can redirect them to the things that matter most—serving your student-athletes and engaging with fans.

We offer the best of both worlds to help you balance strong internal controls with efficient processes. We do this by collaborating with your team to make sure you’re developing processes that not only protect against vulnerabilities, but also ensure proactive, timely and streamlined operations.

Packages

We define our approach to advisory as “one size fits one.” We listen carefully to your priorities and customize our service delivery to bring the most value to you.

Each of our service packages is designed with three phases in mind to support our holistic approach: Discover, Define, and Deliver.

How much we do is up to you. We can offer you the basics, premium service, or meet you somewhere in the middle. Download our Ticket Office Advisory Services brochure to learn more.
