I’m Stephen Beck, FinOps founder and managing director.
When I was in college studying mechanical engineering, I took an optional module in Business Information. It was the 90’s, a decade of rapid technological changes and rising productivity for businesses. During that module, I heard a story about the CEO of Coca-Cola. Our professor told us that if sales were doing badly in a particular region, the CEO logged on to a desktop computer where he could drill down not just to State level, but to each regional store. He was able, in the early 90’s, to figure out that sales had dropped because bottles were being stocked on the wrong shelf. Not the wrong State, not the wrong store, but the wrong shelf!
It struck me as unfair that big corporations had access to data, insights, and information that were simply out of reach and out of budget for small businesses.
Which is why I founded FinOps.
At FinOps, we know you want to grow your business. In order to do that, you need highly efficient finance processes in place so that you’re fully in control and not wasting time and headspace on daily finance tasks.
The problem is that clunky finance processes are slowing you down which leaves you feeling anxious because it’s getting in the way of growth. Clunky back-office processes can’t keep up with your sales team and ad hoc systems are leading to overspend. It’s frustrating because you know there’s a better way.
You shouldn’t have to settle for a sub-standard finance function. At FinOps, we believe that small businesses should enjoy the benefits of big-business technologies without breaking the bank. As qualified chartered accountants and certified Xero advisors with a background in engineering, we obsess over your systems. We review your current finance processes, radically improve them using best-in-class digital tools, and support you as you grow.
