Building capability for profitable growth

Finance Function Transformation

Transform, up-skill or turnaround your Finance Function

When your finance function starts to struggle, sleepless nights can quickly follow. The finance team keep the business under control and alive. If you are starting to lose confidence in their ability to do this, take action sooner rather than later.

The Finance Function manages the cash – the lifeblood of a business. Finance manages critical business information, business risk and champions profit and cash creation. Just like sales and operations, it is not a function that you can afford to let fall behind.

Up-skill your finance function if you want:
1. Your business to survive its inevitable ups and downs
2. Maintain control of the business with growth at 10%, 30% or 400% per year
3. Maximise your businesses profits, cashflow and valuation
4. To sleep soundly at night, knowing your business is well looked after come rain or shine

If you don’t invest in your finance function, you are not investing in your ability to maintain and improve profits. Many business leaders have focused on the size of the business only to realise profits and cashflow is what really matters for survival, business strength and business valuations.

We help you evaluate your team, plan how to transform the function or journey with you in implementing transformation.

1. Transactional processing

Book-keeping: basic invoice & data capture and cash collection & payments. Provides little insight and information to improve business performance

2. Management Information

Creating information to support better decision making at all levels within the business. Non-finance staff left to interpret the data and take action.

3. Business Partnering

Championing business performance – profit and cash –  while working alongside Sales, Marketing, Operations and the Management teams

4. Strategic Partner

Formulating and executing the business strategy, alongside the CEO.

Grow Profit and Cash - the finance function's critical goal
