We offer a wide range of controlling and financial consulting services that promote rapid and reliable decision making in your company.
Our experts are ready to help you either to establish your controlling activities or to revise and improve your existing controlling framework.
Effective controlling functions give you access to detailed, up-to-date information about your business. Your reporting structure will give you a good grip on your company’s finances, operational KPIs, and cash flow status. More than that, we help you create a planning and budgeting process with which you can analyze and evaluate future business opportunities.
Based on our experience, too many companies operate with a limited controlling capacity when their size and complexity actually require a much more sophisticated approach.
With the assistance of our experienced colleagues, we offer your company these benefits:
Our consulting services will help you form your own smooth-running operational planning and reporting structure that will provide up-to-date and accurate information for your business decisions.
An integrated business-forecasting and budgeting model is essential for effective planning. Our business modeling method, developed over many years of research and experience, can support you in improving this aspect of your company’s management.
Business planning models are used in the following areas:
Planning and Risk Analysis
In many companies, planning does not systematically consider strategic risks. Most corporate plans are static and allow only a couple of planning variants. We help you to adopt risk analysis methodologies that enrich your business planning and budgeting models and allow working out multiple contingency plans.
Traditional profit and loss statements and balance sheets provide general summaries of a company’s business activity, but they do not reflect the details of its liquidity position. Based on our experience, many companies do not put enough effort into analysing and monitoring their cash flow.
There are many ways we can help you manage your cash flow:
Dynamic evaluation of operating efficiency is one of the most important elements in the controlling toolkit. It requires systems that are capable of showing the most important financial and operational indicators in all their complexity.
We help you to design and create indicator systems and to implement compatible business processes.
Balanced Scorecard methodology combines and balances the financial viewpoint with the viewpoints of customers, internal business processes, and learning and growth.
In our experience, the successful implementation of a Balanced Scorecard reporting framework is not a straightforward process. Our knowledgeable consultants can help you establish a tailored, efficient Balanced Scorecard performance indicator system—and overcome the related difficulties.
Today’s rapidly changing economic environment requires cost-effective corporate performance, and it is necessary to continuously improve the cost structure and to tighten cost controls. Our experts will help you to review your company’s cost structures and suggest the necessary changes.
Activity-based costing (ABC)
Corporate managers need to have a complete understanding of the real cost and profit-generating potential of their products and services.
In order to make the right decision, managers need a solid approach for allocating the actual material and human resources related costs to products and services.
Incomplete or “guess-timated” cost allocations can lead to inaccurate pricing, bad choices, and wasted resources. Our improved activity-based costing method leads to effective cost control, answers your pricing questions, and supports profit-oriented decision-making.
