Management Support Services
Providing the extra support you need, when you need it
Our philosophy is to provide you with whatever help that you need to run your business profitably and efficiently. This philosophy is implemented through our management support services. Whilst they cover a host of activities with our clients, there are a number of standard areas where we can provide you with help and support.
Non-Executive Director Services
When you are running your own business it is easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day problems and forget the long-term aims. Indeed, the managers of most small and medium-sized businesses spend far too much time working in the business and not enough time working on the business. You don’t have to be a limited company to benefit from our “non-executive director” services. Whatever your structure, we provide you with a regular time when we focus on the on-going strategic issues for your business.
As business consultants we work with you to analyse your business, from a financial and non-financial point of view, and to suggest areas where changes could help improve your efficiency and profitability. Having made the suggestions, we are also able to work with you to build and implement the solutions.
The range of work that we can undertake for you is extensive. It ranges from developing strategic business and marketing plans to conducting client surveys and from advising on a suitable stock control system to working with you on pricing issues. If the problem is one that needs specialist advice we will also help you to find the right advisor. Whatever your business need, our business consulting services will help you to maximise your business.
Business Structure Services
A key part of any strategic advice is to ensure that your business is set up in the most appropriate way. There are many factors that might affect the decision, including ownership, management, risk, disclosure of information, taxation and future intentions. What was the right structure in the past may not necessarily be the right structure given your current plans for the future. This is something that we will review for you regularly.
Whilst much of our advice can revolve around business expansion and growth, it is still important to keep the basic costs under control. We can advise you on appropriate cost control systems and help you to develop a budgetary system. On a more proactive approach we can carry out a cost audit for you. This analyses how and where you are spending money, where you can make savings, and how you can get better value for your money.
Much of the work that we do for you under our management support services may be one-off assignments – tackling the issues and problems that you face as and when they arise. As we’ve said already, our aim is to provide you with the extra support that you need, when you need it.
