There’s plenty of data in your business – turn it into information that you can use to reduce costs or improve sales and profit.

Financial reporting is very much the end result of a broad range of activities that are taking place in your business.

Your business has huge amounts of data stored in a number of systems, but its usually hard to make sense of that data when it’s not all in one place. Collating all your data and analysing performance starts to give you insights into inefficiencies you didn’t even know you had.

This helps you see how your internal activities are impacting those that  are most important; your customers.

How are you delivering to your key stakeholders and is your business performance on track to reach your goals?

  • Is your company as productive as it can be?

  • Are you operating in the right markets or selling product at the right price?

  • Are you focusing on the right topics to improve bottom line?

The benefits of accurate business reporting are clear.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our definition of Business Reporting done well means it is not just about preparing a monthly set of reports and sending them around your team

We start by working with you to refine what metric’s you really need to focus on in your business, and then consolidate those into standardised dashboards that are configured to help you see if you’re tracking towards your key business goals or outcomes.

This gets everyone in your organisation focused on the same set of numbers and KPIs that matter for their specific areas of responsibility.

  • Automated dashboards, all in one place
  • Focus on improving the numbers, not finding them
  • Faster, better decisions
  • Improved clarity and accountability
  • More engaged teams
  • Spot opportunities to change performance
  • Improved customer experience
  • Optimise operations
  • Reduced working capital of stock

It’s about measuring the key parts of your business that really show you where things are working or not e.g. sales conversions, processing times, order lead times, wastage, margins, customer preferences and behaviour etc.

By having greater visibility of where the inefficiencies are in your business you can start to look at the process changes that will lead to faster turnaround times, better customer experiences and a more effective workforce.

Reporting also starts to drive team alignment. Everyone is looking at the same set of reports, so the team has greater clarity on where to focus their time and energy.

Often reports are static; done manually, time consuming or historically focused.

By consolidating all your metrics into one reporting solution you can get a consistent set of reports that all your teams are monitored against “one version of the truth”.

It also helps reduce costs through reduced time and effort in collating the data and allows for better decision making through improved timing and accuracy of information.

Sometimes managers or owners are not aware of the inefficiencies across their business. It is not until you bring all the operational metrics together that you can start to build up a picture of where things are actually going wrong. A large part of any reporting project is about identifying the key questions you are trying to resolve or areas of the business you a trying to change. You then align the metrics you need to monitor or help resolve them.

  • The data in my business is in multiple systems
  • The reporting is currently irregular or inconsistent
  • Pulling the numbers together is time consuming and done across various parts of the business, creating multiple versions of the truth, from various information sources

Here are some of the questions you should be able to answer with your sales reporting:

  • Who are my most profitable customers and customer segments?
  • What are my top selling products?
  • What are the geographic distribution of my sales?
  • Who are my best performing sales reps?
  • Which are my best/worst performing sales channels?
  • Which are the products and services where I make the best margins
  • Which are the products and services where I make least margins
  • How are sales tracking compared to last week/last month/last year?
  • How are sales tracking against targets?
  • Who has stopped buying?
  • What are the trends by season, or by timing of campaigns, effect of price rises etc?
