Sales and Finance

Sales

Are your sales processes not running as smoothly as you would like?

Perhaps sales levels have shown a decline in recent months or years?

Maybe you are looking for some help to transform your sales?

As part of our range of services, Advocate Business Solutions Ltd can provide in depth sales consultancy for your business, helping you identify areas where profits are being lost and opportunities missed. With our help, you’ll be able to refine your routes from production to sale, maximising margins and learning to do it all on your own.

Our sales consultancy
When you choose us as your sales consultant, we won’t be delivering lengthy PowerPoint presentations or handing over tomes of research and reports that you’ll never have time to read. We want to deliver hands on results, fast, and to give you the tools and the knowledge to keep your processes and performance running perfectly for life.

Our services can help you:

  • Restructure, define or create a sales process
  • Achieve consistency in your route to market
  • Refine or review manuals and training for your sales force
  • Perfect your approach to recruitment and retention of staff
  • Define and establish effective strategies, performance indicators and incentives
  • Improve internal processes to remove wastage and minimise costs

Whether you’re a team of one or fifty, our bespoke sales consultant services will help you achieve your business goals in a simple, effective manner.

Making your team work like a dream
We understand that sales make profits, and that profits make a successful business. However, we also recognise that in order to achieve these profits, every aspect of your business must be considered. We’ll address your sales consultancy needs within the wider remit of your enterprise, looking at how different departments work together, how communications can be improved and how we can make your team function like a well-oiled machine.

Our job is to maximise the potential of your sales team, and to put the foundations in place to help your business grow and develop in the future. Talk to us today about how we can boost your sales performance, and see how affordable it can be to aim higher.

Finance

It can be tempting to think, as a business owner, that your accountant can take care of all your financial needs. But in reality, the majority of accountants are concerned only with the immediate balance sheets and financial reporting systems. For true strategic support, a consulting finance specialist will have the knowledge and overview to really get into your financial systems and processes.

Accounting will tell you what has happened, but gives almost no clues as to what to do to change things.  Where are you making your margins – is it one particular line or service? What proportion of your sales is taken up by direct wages? is this changing? and if so – why? and what could you do differently?

What can a finance specialist do for you?
When you choose us as your commercial consultant, you can expect us to take a holistic look at your product and service delivery lifecycle. Whether you’re looking for advice from a strategic point of view, or help with managing changes in the business, Advocate Business Solutions Ltd are ready to help.

We can help you with:

  • Producing management accounts so you can drill right down into the detail and understand what is happening
  • Budgeting issues, from individual projects through to the overall organisational budget
  • Cost analysis and management
  • Advice on strategy and business systems for the future

We aim to put the foundations in place to make your business healthy, profitable and ready for tomorrow. With our help, you’ll have the practical skills, and a firm vision for the future that will keep your business strong for many years to come.
