Other advantages of working with HA:
Houdyshell & Associates’ experience is one of the most recognizable strengths and factors in clients’ selecting us as their SOC auditor. To date, Curt has performed hundreds of SOC 1 (formerly SSAE 16 and SAS 70) examinations. Whether it was assisting the client in their preparation to performing the testing, managing the audit process or performing technical quality review – Curt is well versed in the performance of SOC 1 (formerly SSAE 16 and SAS 70) examinations. Most of our competitors – have only performed fewer SOC 1 (formerly SSAE 16 and SAS 70) examinations and possibly none in your specific industry. In fact, most small accounting firms have never performed a SOC 1 (formerly SSAE 16 and SAS 70) examination before, which can increase your frustration level.
Large firms, which have similar expertise as ours, typically staff their SOC 1 (formerly SSAE 16 and SAS 70) examinations with less-experienced consultants or staff auditors with minimal manager or partner level involvement. This does not happen at HA. At HA – the founder and expert will manage and work on your project – helping you through the SOC maze. Larger firms also work in multiple industries and lack the industry expertise in order to help their clients make improvements to their processes and business. At HA, we often share our in depth relevant knowledge of other service bureaus or the latest industry best practices with our clients to help them become more efficient and productive, which translates into growth and increased profit margins.
The HA team is highly trained, have widely recognized professional certifications and designations that demonstrate their knowledge of the complex world of accounting, auditing and information technology issues. All HA team members meet or exceed the CPE requirements of every state we work in. HA is a member of the AICPA and its Peer Review Program with the latest Peer Review issued as of May 2015.
