Six practical tools management accountants keep coming back to

Activity based costing

Understand your product and customer net profitability better than ever before. Our activity based costing tool helps you to trace resource consumption, cost final outputs, and ultimately make truly value-based decisions. 

KPIs management – financial and non-financial

Accurately monitor progress towards accomplishing your business’s strategic objectives. This tool provides practical guidance on how to connect KPIs with the overall mission, vision and strategy of your organisation, while balancing short and long-term goals. 

Risk heat map

Pack a punch with your risk assessment results and present them to colleagues in a meaningful, concise way. Use our template to convey qualitative and quantitative evaluations and ensure that everyone in your business is on the same page when it comes to risk management. 

Strategic planning tools

Achieve all your organisational goals by perfecting the strategic planning process. Learn how to optimize SWOT and PEST analysis to assess internal and external factors that might impact your action plan. Then use our do and don’t checklist to provide strategic guidance to other departments within your business. 

Value chain analysis

Ensure that your business creates value for every one of your customers, at every stage of their journey. This tool helps finance professionals to prioritise activities, allocate cost effectively and monitor customer satisfaction for maximum market success. 

Three approaches to valuing intangible assets

Accurately estimate the value of intangibles in your business. Learn about our market, income, and cost approaches, and how they can be used to shed light on even the most volatile assets.
