Validation stage: Any accounting-related professionals interested in describing major pain points?

I'm interested in working with a group to build an accounting-related
project. We're still experimenting and trying validate the idea. The intent
is to improve certain processes typically found in smaller accounting
departments (1-6 people).

If you're in anyway tied to an accounting department, or maybe used to work
in one, or maybe have a friend who is in one, or whatever, could I spare
you for a few minutes to run some open-ended questions by you?

If you provide the open-ended questions, I'm sure many people could distribute the survey to people in our networks.

Agreed. I'm not an accountant but my brother-in-law is and he's always looking for better solutions for his two-man practice.

Some of the questions we're interested in asking include:

   - What are some of the biggest pain points your accounting department
   faces on a regular basis?
   - How do you maintain your close process?
   - Can you describe your version control process?
   - How do you sign off or control your worksteps, procedures, and journal
   entries?
   - Do you have any experience with a SOX compliant company? Can you
   describe their process of becoming SOX compliant?
   - What steps are taken to streamline audits? What is the most difficult
   part of the audit process?
   - What issues, if any, do you face during your close process?
      - If your company has issues during the close, what can you do to
      improve it?
      - What software, tools, or education can be used to improve the close
      and how much effort would it take to implement such tools?
