business metric dashboards
A dashboard is a visual representation of important data from your business. By combining financial, operational, sales, and marketing data into one report, you can get a view of all the drivers in your business. The dashboard is easy to understand and it allows you to quickly diagnose how your business is performing, both good and bad, so you can make quick, effective decisions.
Cash Flow Forecasting
We create a dynamic cash flow forecast that projects incoming cash deposits and outgoing cash expenditures in future months. The forecast tool connects directly to our accounting software and updates automatically as transactions are added to your books. Scenario adjustments help you plan for future cash needs so you can make decisions and adjustments before a crisis occurs.
consolidated entity reporting
We can bring multiple business entities into one consolidated reporting entity to track overall performance. Each entity's books, ledgers, and bank accounts remain separate but we are able to track budgets, create forecasts, and measure performance across all of your businesses as if they were one.
Financial Health metrics
We create financial health metrics based on growth, profitability, liquidity, and solvency to measure the strength of your business. As your financials are updated each week, your metrics update against the targets set by our team. This snapshot overview is a great way to identify potential problem areas within your business and make adjustments.
We create financial forecasts that are linked across your P&L, Balance Sheet, Cash Flow Statements, and Ratios. The financial forecasts can predict future income and expenses up to 10 years out and it also gives you the ability to do “what if” scenario planning in your business. With our easy to use forecasting tool, you can skip the complex spreadsheets and make forecasts that will help you plan for the future.

Lose the spreadsheets. Accounting software gives you the ability to view a P&L and a Balance Sheet but most businesses are still producing spreadsheets for their more complex reporting such as budgets, financial forecasts, and cash flow forecasts even when they hire a full time expert. Spreadsheets can be time-consuming to produce, are prone to errors, and make it difficult to track your actuals against these reports. Because our tools connect directly to your books, they simplify the processes for which you’d use a spreadsheet. This allows for more reliable data and saves you both time and money.
Cross Business Best Practices
Not only has our team researched the best tools to use in small business accounting, but we have experience implementing these processes with other businesses across the country and in different industries. This allows us to execute processes that have proven to work for others. Consider an outsourced CFO, a team that utilizes the information you’ve collected as a business owner to determine the next best steps. Business managing need not be a stressful situation because of the numbers - let us take care of what we know best so you can take care of everything else.
