Processing transactions and reporting on what happened are table stakes, but Consero’s Finance Services provide the financial oversight, guidance, and insights you need to make business decisions confidently and to free your time to stay focused on reaching company objectives.
One of the greatest challenges of any business is financial planning. How do you know what to realistically expect for your company’s future, what you should plan for, and what you should do to ensure you reach your growth goals? Planning of any kind of course begins with gathering information, and the more information you have at your fingertips, the more sophisticated and successful your growth plan will be. But having access to your company’s financial records, performance metrics, expenditure, etc. is just the first step. Analyzing that data and developing a comprehensive strategy is where many companies fail for a variety of legitimate reasons:
Lack of Time. With all the other pressing items on your plate, finding enough time to thoroughly and effectively analyze data is virtually impossible.
Lack of Expertise. You know your business and your industry. You know your goals, and where you plan to take your company. But financial management expertise is something you’ve likely considered hiring a new team member for, or hiring a financial services company.
Lack of Resources. There’s your ideal financial growth plan, and then there’s the one that you can realistically attain within the parameters of your resources.
This is where Consero Global’s finance services come in. Our experienced financial leaders work alongside your team to give you and other stakeholders clarity on the drivers of the financial performance of your business today, help you understand what’s going to happen looking forward, and determine what you can do to affect those results.
What is Financial Planning & Analysis?
The ultimate goal of our team is to help CEOs and CFOs make informed corporate and financial decisions regarding the future growth and security of the company. Unlike accounting and bookkeeping, FP&A includes in-depth analysis and evaluation of a company’s financial position, with the intent of laying out an effective growth track. Financial planning analysts seek to answer questions such as:
How has your company traditionally performed financially and why
Where is your company not operating cost-effectively, and how can that be improved
What are the market trends, specifically in your industry, and how can we leverage them
Where does your company have the most opportunity for growth and profit
In order to answer these questions, and many others, we work with your internal teams to look at all available data, past and present, as well as market trends, your company’s cash flow and ROI, overall financial health, and more. This crucial process can be broken down into four elements:
Planning & Budgeting
While no two companies are the same, one consistent reason across the board that companies fail is due to poor planning for financial growth and stability. We provide you with financial experts to walk through each element of your business and find the strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities.
But the success of your business doesn’t hinge on the plan itself. It hinges on the execution, making it crucial to not only have a financial growth plan but to work with a company with a track record of implementing these plans successfully.
