The Team

We are Accounting, Operations, and Software industry veterans with public and private accounting expertise and experience providing outsourced accounting services and re-designing and configuring hundreds of Client software-based solutions.

Who We Are

IFI is a Southern California-based outsourced services firm. We guide and enable dynamic and growing companies that are challenged by poor visibility to gain control and insights to the information they need to operate their business.

Our clients rely on us for the experience and expertise to supplement or outsource their accounting services or guide them as they transform their accounting and back-office operations systems to increase efficiency and flexibility as a catalyst for growth.

What We Do

We empower growing SMBs with our outsourced accounting and technology transformation services. We provide them streamlined approaches, outsourced resources, and technology infrastructure to handle the financial and HR advisory aspects of their business. In turn, we’re able to reduce the capital and time they spend on these activities today so they can focus on growing their business.

The Finance and HR functions are the back-plane of any organization and these fields consume money and time that could have been better used for revenue-generating activities such as service delivery, product development, and sales and other key functions that differentiate the business.
