Current Business Issues

As sure as day follows night, this economy will turn around, but for now, CFO's are driving changes in their businesses to deal with the downturn. But this requirement to rightsize the business, has to be balanced with the need to manage its exposure to risk. Call us today to find out how White Squires can help you get the balance right.

Better Budgeting

Imagine it is the end of the financial year. Management is scruitinising the past year's performance as well as planning for next year. If you are involved in the planning and budget process you are probably in “Spreadsheet Hell” trying to collect data from a variety of sources, make sense of it all and then come up with a budget that is both achievable and acceptable to senior management.

Financial planning and budgeting lays the foundation for any effective business plan. Without a clear set of goals and objectives and a financial plan which supports those goals, managing business day-to-day is like driving your car through the rearview mirror. A well prepared budget provides the headlights to illuminate the future direction of the enterprise.

At White Squires we understand the value of a financial budget to an organisation, but we also know that the majority of businesses do not place a high enough priority on it except at budget time. We believe that this is because:

    1. It is not tied directly to the strategy and objectives of the business;
    2. It is never 100% accurate;
    3. It is almost never completed in time for the beginning of the fiscal year;
    4. It is rarely, if ever, flexible enough to be meaningful when business conditions change.

White Squires place maximum importance on ensuring that the budget is more than simply a set of numbers to be “shelved”. By leveraging technology and ensuring that there is a clearly planned and communicated process in place, we help improve the value of the financial planning and budgeting process to the organisation and ultimately provide the business with an incredibly effective tool for decision-making.

Contact us today to find out how we can help you:

  • Establish an effective budget / planning process through planning and communication;
  • Combine a top down and bottom up approach to the planning and budgeting process;
  • Implement workflow automation to guide participants through the process steps;
  • Use BI and Performance Management tools to track performance against budget;
  • Build flexibility into the budget by basing it on the key measures of risk and performance of the business.
