Benchmarking

Have you ever wondered how your business performs compared to your competitors? What is their average bottom line? Are you spending enough on advertising? Are you paying too much rent? Are your staff costs too high? Surviving in today’s business climate requires you to spend more time working on your business than in it. We can provide you with accurate, timely, informative benchmarking reports that enable you to:

  • See how your business compares to your competitors
  • Understand more about how the rest of your industry works
  • Analyse the key performance indicators in your industry

Equipped with this information, we’ll work with you to develop action strategies that improve your bottom line.

Budgeting

A good budget is a necessity in a good business plan. It is one of the best business tools you can have, enabling you to set financial targets and measure your performance.

In addition to goal-setting value, budgets will often improve your chances of acquiring funding. Financiers often require budgets as a prerequisite for funding approval.

The techniques we utilise to form financial projections enable you to consider future scenarios and provide you with goals to strive for in your business. There are many types of budgets. We can help you design the right budget for your requirements.

Let us show you how a budget can provide feedback that helps you prepare for the future of your business.

Cashflow Forecasting

Are you holding too much inventory? Is this the right time to expand your business? Are you going to have enough cash to pay all your expenses every month? Surviving in today’s business climate requires you to spend more time working on your business than in it.

We can provide you with accurate, timely, informative cash flow forecasting reports that enable you to:

  • Realise and understand when cash is available

Equipped with this information, we’ll work with you to develop action strategies that improve your bottom line.

Your strategic plan will:
