In today’s competitive markets it is very important to be ahead of the game. Oftentimes small and medium-sized businesses originate from a personal ambition of the entrepreneur, which over time expands to a larger company. To grow means managing your own business: focus on your craft, managing people, sales and marketing and also, administration and finances. Accurate, timely and reliable information is imperative in taking effective strategic decisions about your company’s heading.
Your information systems should be designed in such a way that they provide the vital information that keeps your company manageable and on course. But as a small or medium-sized business, you may find it challenging to have the financial room to appoint a dedicated manager for this. In the fast-pace environment you operate in and definitely in case of expansion or a business transfer, such an advisor is paramount.

- Does Management receive a weekly summary of the Key Performance Indicators?

- Are these management reports analyzed, presented and discussed?
- Does your company have a long-term strategic planning, supported by a financial prognosis?
