As a business grows, profitability can get hidden in the swirl of employee increase, customer acquisition and expansion. Eventually a growing business can get trapped in a cycle of frustration.
The problem is increased complexity.
The solution is a paradox. Fight complexity with simplicity.
Not just any simplicity. You need Profit Engineered simplicity. A laser focus on the handful of truly important levers of your business. Effective communication to your team of the growth priorities. Compensation plans and motivation to get your people and your customers behaving in the best interests of the business.
Profit Engineering mines your business data and applies techniques honed over years of Australian and international experience. We find detailed cash-costs, patterns in customer behaviour, and discover the true star customers, most profitable activities and least necessary overhead spending. Our discovery phase uncovers the hidden inefficiencies and cross-subsidies dragging the business down.
We also design new compensation schemes, marketing insights and highly simplified forecasting and reporting tools to get the business focused on the right drivers of growth.
Our work is based on years of CFO turn-around experience in manufacturing, professional services and retail. Ours is a fact-drive, analytical approach to management based on one outcome: restoring cash-healthy, profitable growth through a focus on a handful of business levers. It's a paradox that you fight complexity with simplicity, but it works if you get the right simplicity.
