identifying and managing critical numbers


PSC helps clients craft and execute winning growth & profitability agendas.

One of the few constants in this world of continuous evolution is shareholders' expectation of sustained growth. Surprisingly few firms have a clear, well-internalized agenda for meeting this expectation or the ability to execute. PSC helps clients achieve success by offering the following resources and services: 


Identifying and Managing Your Critical Numbers

PSC helps quantify each component of your business in order to provide real-time tools to more efficiently gain control. Many managers use only financial statements to manage, which are historical in nature and cannot provide real-time information. The current competitive environment requires managers to utilize up-to-the-second processes and information to maximize results. It is impossible to manage or control effectively what you cannot or do not measure. PSC helps our clients :

         Identify critical numbers & use them to more effectively manage the business

         Utilize critical numbers to drive profitability

         Make decisions faster

         Increase the accuracy of decisions

         Use critical numbers as a measurement for accountability

         Learn where to focus attention

         Leverage the money in the business

         Use break-even to explode profitability

         Maximize ROI

         Maximize the net worth of the business

         Develop realistic financial models for the business

Business Intelligence

PSC helps our clients integrate Business Intelligence software with customized reporting solutions to provide a significant management advantage for turning data into valuable business information for maximizing timely and strategic decision-making.
