Accounting, Part 3: Moving from Data Entry to Analysis & Insights

What if instead of a day-to-day annoyance, accounting and finance became a story that helped you make decisions and drive the growth of your consulting startup?

You can move your accounting focus from keeping up with basic data entry to analysis & insights that reveal weaknesses, strengths, and opportunities in your business.

With the help of a CFO, you can:

  • Chart your financial model, metrics, and key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Develop forecasts
  • Educate on and implement compliance measures
  • Create contingency plans
  • Keep a close eye on cash flow
  • And most importantly, inform your growth strategies based on data
