How we helped Gild
The Gild Group is not new to outsourcing or offshoring. Gild Accounting had been working through various offshoring strategies since 2014 and while they had established a base, they were keen to elevate the model to the next level and deliver greater productivity and performance from their offshore team.
In July 2018, Gild engaged Intogreat’s services by offshoring 2 people for an admin role and a tax accounting role to test the capability of the Philippine market.
What problems did we solve for Gild?
✓ Mapping & documentation of Gild’s processes and procedures
✓ Identifying process improvements
✓ Secured Gild’s IP
✓ Promoted a “continuous improvement” culture within their team
From 2, the Gild offshore team at Intogreat have now grown into a team of 12 in 20 months, supporting Gild’s growing portfolio in tax, accounts management and bookkeeping.
