FINANCIAL SYSTEMS & PROCESS CONSULTING
Transform your financial systems and processes into a stable, scalable, and capable powerhouse.
FINANCIAL SYSTEMS ANALYSIS AND DESIGN
Your financial systems should work for you, not the other way around. If your financial systems are incapable of keeping up with your growth, are incompatible with your other operational and/or sales systems and processes, or lack features essential to your business, it may be time to reevaluate.
Preferred CFO has the top systems strategists and advisors in the industry. Since our systems experts have also had extensive accounting and operations experience as internal CFOs, they have a unique vantage point that combines best-in-class systems expertise with practical, working knowledge of a company’s financial needs and strategies.
Evaluate Current System
When our systems advisors partner with you to assess your financial systems and processes, our first goal is to document the current state of your environment and assess it against company objectives. The goal of our analysis will be to identify the gaps, weaknesses, or incompatibilities of your current systems and better understand requirements to achieve your goals.
We will then use this information to evaluate alternatives and design a strategy that builds the path between where you are now and where you want to go in the future. Our overarching purpose is to help you determine where your systems need to be to achieve your goals, and how to get there with minimal cost, time, effort, and disruption.
After we’ve determined your organization’s system requirements and goals, we will help identify and select the best solution and provider(s) to get the solution in place.
Our financial systems advisors have experience with hundreds of global and industry-specific vendors and can help you pick the right product for your needs. We will consider your business goals as well as your current business environment in order to design a systems solution that will be most compatible with your operations while allowing for future growth. We also assist with vendor contract negotiations and the assessment and selection of the vendor’s project team.
We never accept reference fees, incentives, or “kickbacks” from our vendors. You can be confident that when we are selecting a vendor, we are 100% committed to finding the fit that’s right for you and your business goals.
Your systems plan is designed, vendors are selected, and the roll-out timeline is determined. Now it’s time to put your new systems strategy into action!
Your systems advisor will be your transformation coach and guide to make sure the project journey goes smoothly, is completed on time, and delivers all promised functionality. Advisors will assist with the design and execution of data migration, user acceptance testing, and end-user training so your team is prepared to extract the maximum benefit from the new solution. Your advisor will also be available to help troubleshoot issues as they arise and to assist in making decisions among alternative approaches.
Where necessary, we will help you select an implementation specialist to configure the technical aspects of the system, and we will work alongside this specialist to make sure everything is tuned specifically to your needs. We will also offer ongoing support, training, and consultation to help your organization adopt and implement the new system into your financial processes and to ensure you’re maximizing the benefits of your new system.
