As an owner or executive of a privately held company, it can feel like a never ending, overwhelming, daily exercise in firefighting. Between trying to grow the business profitably, you face operational issues, employee issues and continual competitive market pressures.
And on top of that…
When you’re in constant “fire fighting” mode, it can be overwhelming. Over time, it’s hard to know if the frantic pace you keep everyday is normal or if other owners or executives have figured out a way off the treadmill. What if you could know, with certainty, where others have succeeded and failed and be able to avoid future challenges?
Most companies know what they do well and what they aren’t doing so well. Very few know how well they are doing compared to the “best in class” metrics of similar companies in their space. What if you could get a detailed measurement of where your business stands compared to industry best practices?
The business model worked in the beginning, but as the company grew, you outgrew its effectiveness. Many businesses today are operating in a model that is no longer able to support the growth profitably. What if you could better understand how to “right size” your operations to better meet the needs of a growing business?
We simply don’t know what we don’t know. For most businesses, they maintain a very narrow view of areas outside of their day to day operations. Many businesses are simply running with the treadmill on 10 everyday just to keep the doors open. Without expert help from the outside, it is next to impossible to diagnose issues that can be hampering your financial potential.
At Braintrust, we believe that the keys to financial success and long term sustainability for your business revolve around the ability to diagnose and predict areas in your business that, if left unchecked, can sink the proverbial ship.
Our uniqueness lies in our ability to diagnose a business from end to end with our proprietary analysis software and process. Our business analysts and consultants aren’t just employees, they are former business owners and executives with decades of experience. We’ve walked the path you are walking and know exactly what challenges you face, what dangers lie on the road ahead and what to do to fix them now and avoid them in the future.
In order to effectively eliminate problems that prevent profitability, you must first know how to uncover them. Our proprietary diagnostic software was created by industry expert analysts with privately held businesses in mind.
Many businesses today measure their success simply by revenue and profit. In order to truly create a sustainable model, you must dig deeper into the “inputs” that result in the “outputs”. Part of our analysis process creates benchmarks in the key areas that drive financial health for your business.
We don’t just help you “identify” and “quantify” the impact of your business challenges. We have a team of experts to help you actually “rectify” those problems should you need help. Our business advisors/consultants are former owners and executives with decades of experience in the key areas of Strategy & Planning, Sales & Marketing, People & Organization, Operations Management and overall Financial Health. We are in it for the long haul, each step of the way.
