HELP COMPANIES DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT VALUE CREATION PLANS IN THE AREAS OF FINANCE, IT AND OPERATIONS.
There are several times in a business life when a company needs to change and operate at a higher level. Sometimes it is driven by a crisis, sometimes growth, and sometimes change in ownership. When companies need to substantially up your game to allow for growth, scaling up or to turn the business around, GR&Co can develop and implement the new structures, processes and procedures to improve operation and performance in tight timeframes. We understand that every moment you don’t address problems or meet customer needs, the value of your company deteriorates. We parachute in, get it under control, working and functioning at a much higher level with velocity. We are always talking about weeks and months, NOT years!
PREPARE COMPANIES TO GO TO MARKET WHEN IN SEARCH OF A BUYER, INVESTOR, OR CAPITAL.
For privately held companies, when it comes the time to exit or to at least to take some chips off the table, business owners find themselves negotiating with larger companies or private equity groups. Both are very used to transactions and the Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) world. It can become a unfair to have that experienced group looking into financial information, negotiating and assessing value of privately held businesses where most likely the owners are going through the one and only transactions that they will do in their careers. One of the things we offer is assisting business owners with the cleanup, standardization and presentation of their financial information. Helping them present their business in the best light possible to maximize valuation. We help them find and substantiate add-backs, present historical financials and forecasts during management presentations for example. And we are the point of contact during the due diligence process. Not only we have experience in going through due diligences, but this also allows the internal team to remain focused on the day to day.
SELECTION, IMPLEMENTATION OR REVAMPING OF ERP SYSTEMS. (TO ALLOW THE COMPANY TO MANAGE THEIR BUSINESS BASED ON TIMELY, ACCURATE AND RELIABLE DATA).
Have you ever found yourself in a situation that you have just made in an enormous investment in a new ERP system and you find that its doesn’t meet half of the promises that ERP consultants made? You don’t know if the problem is with how the software or its set up. Maybe the users were not trained properly. Or a variety reasons why it is not working the way you envisioned. Worse yet, you cannot get information out of the system that truly helps you make better business decisions and or gives you any confidence of its accuracy. Unfortunately, we have seen too many instances where that Is the case. GR & Co. we do a lot of work post implementation of a system when companies are not happy with how their system is working and the information being generated. That’s what we call revamping. We review and tweak settings, redesign information and work flows, develop new processes and procedures.
You may be discovering / realizing that what worked in past doesn’t seem to be enough anymore. Insufficient for your future, your vision of the future and goals for your company and legacy. “What got you here, it is not what will get you there”. It is fact may be hindering your future growth. Old systems and structures may now be a stumbling block. (Is it really not broken?). You are starting to realize that the systems, processes and structure you currently have are no longer adequate to where you want to go.
What if you had accurate and timely financial information that gave you confidence when making business decisions? Now imagine you get consistent and reliable information from all areas of the business. What if you could have an integrated system where your people speak the same language and are collaborating? Imagine all areas of the company working for a common goal.
