Unorganized and unattended expenses can throw your whole operation out of whack. We help you make sure that your bills, expense reports and credit cards are monitored and taken care of in a professional and timely manner. Done.

Bills

Credit Cards

We check your credit card statements to verify all transactions made through your corporate card are accurately reflected on your balance sheet, keeping financials secure.

Revenue Done™

Without a steady inflow, your company can’t keep up the good work. We make sure invoicing, inflow and debts owed are paid to you in full. Done.

Invoices

Our financial accounting services team also manages your accounts receivable entries and invoicing so you know who needs to pay and when, so you get what you’re owed when it’s due.

Cash Application

Our cash application specialists monitor your company’s cash inflow and maintain organized financial records. And we help you keep track of financial information with regular reports, which allow you to stay up to date on collection management if needed.

Collections

After verifying contact information and gathering details on a company that owes you money, we can effectively inform debt collectors on behalf of your business. Though we primarily call debtors to start, we also email, fax and mail a short demand letter, typically within one business day of the claim. Upon making contact, we try to find the reason behind the unpaid bills so we are better able to come up with a strategy to obtain payment, as quickly as possible.

Accounting Done™

Accounting is at the heart of any well-run company. We make sure your books are in balance and error-free by taking care of everything from bank reconciliation and invoicing to cash flow management and year-end reporting. We also seamlessly integrate into your preferred systems. All you have to do is review and approve. Done.

GL Management

Your general ledger is the keystone to generating and preparing accurate and timely financial records. Using monthly reconciliation and reviews of key accounts, as well as providing and implementing all recommended changes, we create an accurate account of your general ledgers. Our process often includes opening/closing accounting periods, recording accounting activities for the period’s end, accruals, adjustments and closeout. We then review and analyze the general ledger trial balance for abnormal and inappropriate balances or any discrepancies, at which point we take corrective actions. Our experts also analyze trial balance relationships and develop controls to ensure the integrity of financial statement data.

Reconciliation

Our accounting services team scours your bank statement to confirm that your transactions align with your balance sheet, so you can avoid discrepancies, errors or fraud.

Budget Versus Actual

We provide an accurate assessment of how a company’s spending and revenue generation meet the financial forecasting projections to identify areas over or under budget, whether you can or should hire additional employees, or even shine light on a gross profit margin that isn’t in line with expectations. The report is prepared monthly and reviewed with financial statements to determine areas of the business that are not meeting expectations and require further investigation.

Reporting

Stay informed on the health of your business with our detailed financial reporting, including income statements and balance sheets, so you’re aware of transactions, cash flow and reconciliations.

Done.

Recuiting Done™

Attract top talent with our start-to-finish recruitment support services, a powerful alternative to contingent or retained search, which can cost as much as 32% of the employees’ first year salary. 

Escalon’s Recruiting Done provides recruiting process management and administrative support for a fixed, flat fee. Escalon can either work side-by-side with your staff to find the right candidate or own the entire hiring process. 

Our experienced team of recruiters will draft job descriptions, source candidates, conduct phone screenings, schedule interviews and coordinate travel logistics as needed. No more wasted time dealing with the consequences of unsuitable candidates and inaccurate job descriptions.

Setup

Our recruiting solutions set you up to get the best hire, quickly. We start by establishing specifics from your hiring managers to create explicit job descriptions, screening and scoring criteria, interview questions and more.

Sourcing

Our proprietary sourcing capabilities find ideal candidates, whether they’re actively looking for a position or passive job seekers. Our recruiting team builds a strong candidate pipeline by sourcing from select job boards and social media platforms, identifying candidates that otherwise wouldn’t be found.

Screening

Let us be your frontman. Our recruitment support services handle phone screenings and provide initial candidate ratings so you have a curated list of prospects ready for the first round of interviews. By allowing us to narrow down your pool of candidates, we spare you the time and effort of sorting through potentially hundreds of unwanted resumes. Your Recruiting Done associate sets up objective scoring criteria, based on the hiring manager’s specifications as to what is important in a candidate and from the requirements listed in the job description. The score is then automatically generated when a candidate fills out an application or when the associate enters information from a resume.

The phone interview or candidate screen determines whether the candidate’s qualifications, experience, workplace preferences and salary needs are congruent with the position and organization. This saves managerial time and further eliminates unlikely candidates. It also strengthens the search, since we are already talking to the best prospects.

Scheduling

Our full-service recruitment support team works with your hiring managers to provide candidate assessment and guidance and will even schedule interviews to move the process steadily forward.

Selection

Ready to make an offer? Our veteran hiring team will help you make the best selection, taking into account the candidate’s experience, skill and cultural fit. We can also assist in offer negotiation.

Deposit Time

We can create an essential online human resources hub for your employees — benefits enrollment, time reporting, career development resources and more — customized to your evolving business needs. Our HR consulting professionals not only help acclimate new employees into their roles and duties, but also facilitate job changes and exits to make sure outgoing employees leave on good terms. Done.

Employee Handbook and HR Policies

Together we create an employee handbook that new and current employees can reference for all things HR. Each company employs different policies and values, so we work closely with you to make sure your employees have a resource for this information.

Onboarding

Onboarding is a crucial aspect for any new hire. It is actually a large factor for whether your new employee will stay on for the long haul. We make sure your first impression is a welcoming one. Our turnkey onboarding system lets you rest easy when it comes to compliance, your onboarding checklist and making sure employees feel welcome.

Offboarding

When you decide to part ways with an employee, the offboarding process can be nearly as important as the onboarding process. We make sure that forms are taken care of, responsibilities are redirected appropriately and exit interviews are conducted when needed.

Compliance
