Regardless of size, owning or managing a business requires you to make constant decisions—the strongest of which are made by augmenting your experience and intuition with the right information and tools.
That’s where business modelling comes in. Modelling helps by mapping the factors that impact your business and helps to see the impact of your decisions on the environment around you. It gives you the necessary information to make the critical, often timely decisions required to drive your company forward.
A real estate company wanted to evaluate the financial impact of a new high-priced development.
A dynamic model was created to forecast revenue over the next 20 years under different operating and economic conditions. A financial overview of the proposed project was also prepared to be integrated into the model.
The company was able to evaluate investment options from multiple points of view, address uncertainties of the development and ultimately make faster, transparent and more confident decisions.
A small private company needed a strong cash flow model to help them manage available funds in a more efficient way.
A 13-week direct cash flow model was developed to identify possible cash shortfalls. The forecasting plan could be rolled forward on a weekly basis to better manage and improve liquidity.
The company was able to stay onside with respect to debt covenants, maintain financial health, improve their operational efficiency and reduce their overall cost.
A private company with new owners wanted to increase their knowledge of the business and make the management review process more simple.
Weekly and monthly reporting models were developed to show the operational and financial results for each business unit in detail. The model also helped Management map company performance, using trend analysis, KPI tracking and variance analysis against their plan or budget.
Management had a better overall understanding of the business, the confidence to make faster decisions, and the ability to deal with issues quickly and effectively.
