Marcum LLP Named a Best Accounting Firm for Technology
New York City, NY – Marcum LLP was named a Best Firm for Technology by Accounting Today, in its inaugural review of accounting firms that are innovating the use of technology to build more responsive, profitable and sustainable practices. Marcum was named in the Large Firm category.
Accounting Today focused on how firms consider overall technology strategy, use it to better serve clients, and build it into their culture. Measurements of digital workflow, technology distribution, and other workplace metrics also factored into the selections.
Marcum was recognized as a tech-forward firm that realizes the “mission-critical” nature of technology in accounting firm success. Accounting Today quoted Marcum Partner and Chief Information and Digital Officer Peter Scavuzzo’s philosophy that “success requires a symbiotic relationship between the core business and the technology that enables it.”
“Marcum has fully embraced that symbiosis on every level, from its deep commitment to the future of data (‘The next natural business resource,’ according to Scavuzzo) to its creation of internal centers of excellence and digital ecosystems around artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotic process automation and data analytics, and its willingness to innovate and re-innovate processes and systems to stay on the leading edge,” Accounting Today wrote. “Marcum’s integration of technology into its culture and business model goes even deeper than that, though — over the past four years it has been restaffing its tech team with professionals who have accounting and business skills as well as tech skills, so they bring a deeply nuanced understanding of the firm’s core business to innovating technology solutions. And beyond its own symbiosis, the firm works to help clients build theirs, offering visioning and strategy sessions (as well as a wealth of tools, services and solutions) to prepare them for the technology future.”
“Marcum is invested in being a pioneer and leader in the digital disruption space. This includes being fully prepared to re-innovate a process or system where the need for a solution may not be apparent; we are always ready to engineer a new best practice,” Mr. Scavuzzo said. “We are focused both on leveraging our digital platforms to enable a better client experience and on opening up our portfolio of expertise in digital transformation to our clients.”
