You’ll also need the right team to keep your technology running smoothly. Take our assessment to evaluate your IT strength and find out where you need to devote additional resources.

Our clients say

Our experience with Plante Moran has always been very positive. They provide a multitude of services that meet our needs, including our annual review, AUP report for FAR, benefit plan audits, and our tax returns. When we bought a building a few years ago, I mentioned it in a call with our engagement partner, and she suggested we utilize a cost segregation study. I didn’t know that was possible, so having a consistent engagement partner and manager who understand our company and what we’re working on is very valuable.
