Our team of former directors, finance executives, and CPAs draws on their extensive experience and knowledge to minimize manual processes and identify and help you understand key performance indicators. We work to understand each client’s specific goals and form partnerships to achieve them. For example, some clients want to get their books in order to maximize value in preparation for selling the business, while others want to grow their business and increase profits to support the needs of an expanding one. Additionally, others are more focused on cash-flow management.
Our work begins by ensuring the books are always up to date so that we can understand and communicate about profit margins, cash flow, budgets, and projections. We also help many clients pay their bills and invoice customers, as well as assist with job costing to make sure every job is profitable and minimize non-billable work.
Furthermore, we are committed to making connections between clients, vendors, and other professionals who are part of our curated Circle of Excellence.
