Business planning – FSI builds comprehensive and detailed projections over a period of three to five years using the appropriate financial model. Our team conducts detailed discussions with the top management and the other personnel to develop comprehensive assumptions. The assumptions cover various aspects to develop the projections and include pricing and margin based on the competitors, market scenario, fixed and variable expenses, operating model, supply chain, regulatory requirements, and many more.
Commercial due diligence –Clients preparing for a transaction or currently in the midst of one require market and competition analysis, validation of future projections, and other aspects. Our experts will do a complete due diligence to assess the reasonableness of the financial projections, which can be issued to potential investors and financial institutions to formulate an appropriate understanding on the transaction.
Annual operating plan –FSI employs an experienced team of professionals who adopt a bottom-up approach to prepare a detailed annual operating plan. It covers all the departments within an organisation and uses a comprehensive validation and modelling exercise across multiple levels. The annual plans are supported by detailed functional level strategic action plans. Additionally, our team will conduct periodic reviews to monitor the actual performance against the annual plans.
Working capital optimisation –We offer our clients an assessment on various ways in which the company can save their working capital by optimising operational and structural processes. This enables long-term savings instead of finding short-term solutions. Our services include assessing current processes for accounts receivables, accounts payable, inventory, and cash flow management, benchmarking against competitors’ position, quantifying the pressure on margins and the reasons thereof, quantifying potential savings, and developing a roadmap for delivering these savings.
Business continuity –Unexpected business disruptions can leave organisations exposed and prompt and logical actions are required to ensure their continued operations and sustainability. We assist clients to analyse and identify business priorities and the potential risks, assess their impact on their operations, and formulate strategies and plans for immediate recovery and development.
Operational agility –At their core, successful businesses have operational agility, speed and responsiveness to any situation. Our team assists clients in business process reengineering for streamlined processes, establishing benchmarks, building operational transparency, accountability, and traceability for efficient collaboration within the company. We assist companies to eliminate activities that do not add value while improving turnaround time and minimising the documentation requirements. Our team also helps with the implementation process and training, measuring the outcomes, testing the reliability of the strategies, and periodic audits to determine their effectiveness with the objective of enhancing user experience, lower costs, and higher operating margins.
