Financial management for technology companies

The finance area is the nerve center of a company – this is where internal and external signals are received, processed and forwarded. All impulses that are important for managing the company as an organism pass through the finance area. The finance department therefore plays a key role in the strategy process, which it manages from a financial perspective, and in corporate planning. It aims to increase business performance and enterprise value by becoming a driver in the identification of areas for action and the implementation of change processes.

Within the finance department, too, the aim is to become more efficient through the continuous adaptation of organizational structures, rationalization and increasing automation, and to create scope for strategic work. The finance department can then support value-creating and strategy-compliant behaviors within the company. In this context, a high level of professional and social competence is indispensable, otherwise it will not be possible to achieve the desired effect. Particularly in complex situations, psychological influencing factors must be taken into account in addition to sober facts and measured variables.

Based on our many years of experience in consulting and managing financial departments, we support our clients in a targeted manner at the points of greatest benefit. These include:

| Planning and managing earnings and liquidity

| Improving budgeting and forecasting

| Developing scenarios and assessing options for action

| Establishing operational and financial reporting and key figures
