Almost all businesses share the same goals – turn a profit, generate cash and increase shareholder value. Every business needs some level of financial management to achieve these goals, but not all businesses can afford to hire the professional expertise necessary to direct the financial aspects of the business.
That is why many businesses today are turning to outsourced CFO services as a cost effective way to procure professional financial management services.
The cost of hiring a full time CFO can be substantial and out of reach of many small and mid-sized companies. PRIME CFO’s Part Time CFO service provides significant value to the business owner by delivering experienced financial management at a fraction of that cost of a full time CFO.
Here’s what you get with our Part-Time CFO services:
- More time to focus on new services, new customers and other core business issues
- Better understanding of the financial condition of your business, so you have fewer surprises and more control over your finances
- Improved decision-making capabilities from clearly seeing the hard and true numbers of your business
- A readily available sounding board to help you with those tough business decisions and help you clarify your business plans
- The comfort from knowing that a seasoned financial executive is overseeing, protecting and constantly improving the financial side of your business
- Assistance in defining long-range plans and the quantification of goals
- A professional who establishes strong financial controls in your business to enhance operating efficiency and increase profits
