Winning strategies for growth

Dynamic companies understand that to be successful they must adopt a holistic approach to growing their businesses. They are willing to shift gears, taking advantage of opportunities as they arise and making smart investments -- in processes, re-engineering, outsourcing, new markets, innovation and talent -- even when it may be more intuitive to batten down the hatches.

 At kuest, we see our role as helping dynamic organizations unlock their potential for growth. That means participating in an ongoing dialog with our clients and bringing our best thinking to the table so they can make informed decisions, based on sound financial fundamentals that consider all the angles.

Audit Services

Mission:  We think about what matters to you. 

At kuest,we  understand how important audit of business operations, continual improvements, process review and re-engineering and management reviews are to businesses, shareholders/ owners, lenders, investors and other stakeholders.  Our approach is to first understand the business, identify and assess the risks it faces and then to focus our efforts where it matters most.  Our method is both effective and cost efficient.  We work with clients to improve their overall financial reporting processes. Ultimately, we see our audit as more than just numbers and compliance.  

From process improvements, business re-engineering, profit maximization, cost control, security, corporate governance, compliance with tax laws and regulatory requirements to industry trends to the broader economy – the topics that you care about, we care about.  Our services benefit our clients to help run their business more effectively.

Our goal is to help our clients better understand their business. We also consider it our job to keep our clients informed all year long of accounting, financial and regulatory developments that may impact their business. We ensure and assure that the audit process is efficient and the end result is high-quality.

Risk and Compliance

Mission:  You need to apply risk management principles and ensure compliance; we design processes, controls and feed-forward loops to demonstrate quantifiable and measurable results  

Organizations today must implement risk management processes that span silos of business units and IT in order to gain visibility into exposures that really matter to the business. At the same time, risk professionals must present those risks that, when taken, create value and competitive advantage.

kuest has both industry understanding and technical expertise to create value-based risk management programs. We take an information-focused approach to risk by understanding where critical and sensitive information resides, how it moves, who uses it, and how it is protected.  We work with you to:

  •  - Discover and classify critical business processes, information, and assets
  •  - Determine risk appetite and assess business impact of various threat scenarios
  •  - Assess inherent and residual risk
  •  - Analyze options and recommend remediation plans
  •  - Design and implement controls

 

Our risk and compliance services portfolio is aimed at helping our clients’ risk management and compliance programs focus on the areas of high risk and relevant industry or regulatory compliance obligations. Our current service areas include:

  •  - Information security programs – risk assessments, strategy development and roadmaps
  •  - Information privacy & data protection programs
  •  - Regulatory Compliance
  •  - IT Audits – Internal and external audit support
  •  - Business continuity planning and program development

 

At kuest, our focus is to provide value-added benefits that includes strategic alignment, risk management, value delivery, resource management, assurance process integration and performance measurement.

Mission:  You need to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful for your business; we do it in a better, faster and economical manner with highest quality

We strategically transform our clients’ operations, making them smarter, faster and economical, while providing innovative solutions in strategic outsourcing.  kuest excellence provides outsourcing services for finance, accounting and HR services.  Our goal is to lower the overall cost of the service for the clients. In addition to high quality service, our clients enjoy the privileges to:

  • Focus on Core Business:  Resources (for example investment, people, infrastructure) are focused on developing the core business.
  • Cost restructuring:  Operating leverage is a measure that compares fixed costs to variable costs. Outsourcing changes the balance of this ratio by offering a move from fixed to variable cost and also by making variable costs more predictable.
  • Improve quality:  Achieve a steep change in quality through contracting out the service with a new service level agreement.
  • Knowledge:  Access to intellectual property and wider experience and knowledge.
  • Operational expertise:   Access to operational best practice that would be too difficult or time consuming to develop in-house.
  • Enhance capacity for innovation:  Companies increasingly use external knowledge service providers to supplement limited in-house capacity for product innovation.
  • Reduce time to market:   The acceleration of the development or production of a work product through the additional capability brought by kuest.
