We address all of these issues through our business modelling services:
Deciding the future strategy of the business depends more often than not on the company’s ability to:
- Evaluate planned strategies, for example new sales channels and multinational operating sites. We develop strategic options modelling, used for evaluating multiple options, scenarios and sensitivities quickly.
- Understand the profitability of new and existing services and products. Our product profitability modelling service focuses on investigating the impact of product sales or service activity on income, operational expenditure and overheads.
Shaping the business so it is fit to meet its future strategy and objectives involves bringing together the right capabilities, assets and expertise through transactional activity and understanding the impact of synergy or separation. We support this process through:
- Transaction modelling, both of individual assets / business units considered for acquisition or disposal and the overall impact on the merged organisation or joint venture structure.
- Debt structure modelling, investigating the impact of debts, covenants and other funding sources on the profitability and sustainability of the business.
Managing the business, as business as usual or in a crisis situation, depends on measuring the impact of current or future changes in the drivers of business. To do this, organisations need to:
- Develop realistic forecasts to manage capital spending, cash and regulatory compliance better, a need which we serve through business planning and modelling.
- Plan to meet the requirements of multiple contracts and customer expectations. We support this through contract management modelling: breaking down the business forecast and reporting for each contract or customer segment.
