Finance & Controlling

Entrenched routines, inconclusive reports, unrealistic planning, and outdated technologies prevent companies from managing their financial situation and thus the entire company in a forward-looking manner. A transformation of the finance organization helps to identify opportunities and risks earlier and to initiate future-oriented measures for the company.

As part of the consulting project, ensign advisory’s consultants analyze the current situation of existing controlling and financial instruments. In doing so, we focus on the added value that can be achieved for the company through meaningful reports and forecasts. We identify risks and opportunities to increase the degree of automation. For this purpose, stakeholder requirements are recorded, and gap analyses carried out, from which our consultants draw up an action plan for efficient cost and financial management with the help of digitization and automation. Together with our clients, we aim above all to achieve greater clarity as well as possible speed of response.

In addition, our consultants support the development and optimization of reporting and budget systems and improve working capital management by optimizing receivables management as well as the management of liabilities and inventories.

Our core competencies

Working Capital Optimization

An important part of financial and liquidity planning in companies is the optimization of working capital management. Our consultants know the appropriate levers for optimizing working capital and therefore apply them in a targeted manner so that our clients have the lowest possible capital commitment.

Liquidity Management

If clients want to run their company successfully, they must keep an eye on its liquidity. Well thought-out liquidity management goes far beyond determining the status quo. The aim is to avoid any liquidity risk and at the same time create the basis for future planning and changes in the company. Our consultants implement a structured liquidity management system in our clients´ company to ensure solvency and identify potential liquidity risks at an early stage.

Holistic Business and Financial Planning

In changing market environments, the holistic development of business and financial planning is a challenging and at the same time indispensable task, which we would like to tackle together with our clients. Clients can consequently benefit from our proven planning tools, from which we individually implement the solutions that are relevant for them.

Cost/Income Analyses and Benchmarking

Within the framework of a status quo analysis, it is an important component to carry out detailed cost and revenue analyses as well as dedicated benchmarking. In carrying out these analyses, we consider changes in the industry as well as the competencies and resources of the client organization. In all consulting services, we involve both the management and the employees of the client.
