What We Offer

Our CFO Analytics Services

Let us help streamline your reporting process and give you expert guidance so you can build a profitable business.

Piggy Bank

Budgeting

We help guide you through the annual budgeting process and then use the finished budget to track performance, making sure that your finances stay on track with your goals.
Dashboard

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 Forecast

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.  

Consolidate

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.

Health

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.

Forecast

forecasting

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 expense 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. 

Target

Target setting and benchmarking

Our team sets targets for your business based on your industry, your business size, and your region that will help you drive revenue growth and profitability within your business.  Our accounting software connects directly to your CFO Analytics account so we can track your progress against these targets live as your books are updated.  

understanding your REports

client meetings

Regular meetings with a member of our team to review your financials and track progress of actuals against budgets and forecasts.  It is our desire that each of our clients fully understands their numbers so that they can be used to build a profitable business.

Commentary

Our team will prepare commentary on the financial reports so you understand what each number means and the why behind them.

client access

Our clients have a secure login to view their reports online.  Since your books are connected to your CFO Analytics account, your reports will update as your books are updated each month.

Additional users can be added for team members who need access to reports.  

The Benefits

 

Financial Results

We help drive financial performance in your business.   Total expenses are often reduced due to spending controls and continuous monitoring.  Revenue often increases due to setting targets and forecasting your financials. This creates a multiplier effect on our client's profitability / bottom line.

Value

Our CFO Analytics service provides tremendous value to your business at a low cost.  Producing financial forecasts, budgets, cash flow forecasts, and dashboards is a very time consuming process for most businesses.  By simplifying this process, we are able to give a high level service for the fraction of the cost that it takes for you to produce these same reports.  

Accuracy

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.  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 you would use a spreadsheet for, thus reducing errors, giving you more reliable data, and saving 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.
