The health of a company is partly determined by how financially sound it is. Strong financial management is not only a precursor for growth, but also, a requirement for lenders and investors. We take a long term view to building sound accounting and financial protocols. The first step is to take a good in-depth look at what is going on currently, from many different angles. We utilize all the key ratios and analytic tools including; Quick ratio, acid test, return on assets, days of inventory, days of receivables, burn rate, and a host of others. Once we have an understanding of the current environment we develop a comprehensive plan to improve the areas needing attention; as well as putting in place monitoring protocols to ensure performance stays top quartile.
