The Challenge

There’s a single challenge facing most small business owners today: A lack of good financial information specific to their business.

Without it, small businesses tend to fall into the trap of using financial data only on an “as-needed” basis; for example, to file taxes or support other compliance efforts. Yet in doing so, they are missing a significant opportunity, one that can truly transform their business.

The Solution

Using financial information as a strategic tool can provide the actionable insight you need to achieve your business’ most important goals: driving growth, generating new revenues and increasing profitability.

More, this new insight provides daily feedback and detailed key performance indicators (KPIs) to ensure you make the right business decisions – and stay on track each step of the way.

We are ready to help you access the right financial information and start using it to gain valuable new insights about your business. When you do, you’ll start thinking about your business in new ways and see new opportunities you can take advantage of now. 

Why Driven Insights?

We’ve spent the vast majority of our careers at the helm of small business where we focused on transforming the finance function into a competitive advantage. We also spent half a decade evaluating small businesses as potential acquisition candidates. Of the hundreds we analyzed, frighteningly few had adequate financial systems, processes, or people in place to truly drive the business. These business owners were hungry for the insights that a well-oiled finance department can provide.
