When the Finance and Legal teams have questions, they turn to CPAs and outside counsel for expert guidance. Who does the IT group have to turn to?

Finance and legal teams have had backup for as long as anyone can remember. Outside Counsel and CPA firms have been working along side your finance and legal departments to give them the expertise and experience in areas that your inside people don’t have. IT departments have been lacking this same kind of backup until now.

IT Organizations are turning to TAC’s Expert Network for the experience-based professional advice that Finance and Legal have had for years.
