The FAF is the independent, private-sector organization with responsibility for the oversight, administration, and finances of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), and their advisory councils. FAF prints and distributes subscription products including statements, interpretations, and technical bulletins for GASB and FASB. They are based in Norwalk, Connecticut.
Jim Lapinski, Publications Distribution Manager, was deeply involved in the evaluation process and is now the FAF project leader. He is in favor of Advantage for these reasons:
"The Advantage solution fit our needs better than any of the competing products that we evaluated. We were not only looking for a software solution, but also a partner. The ACS team took the time to learn our business needs and answer all of our questions."
Project Manager Mike Miklosovic is leading the implementation for ACS. The team is working toward a go-live by the end of first quarter 2009.
