Strategic Finance Outsourcing

Finance is a powerful weapon that typically is not sufficiently utilized at small and mid-sized companies and nonprofits. Armanino’s Strategic Finance Outsourcing (SFO) group delivers precisely the finance capability your organization needs to meet and exceed both your short- and long-term goals.

Our Approach

We Understand Finance

Beyond products or services themselves, nothing is more important to a business’s success than its finance function. Done right, finance helps businesses 1) better understand and improve their economics, and 2) chart a path to their best future.

Armanino’s SFO group brings both the art and science of finance to the table, providing world-class finance capability to organizations of any size. This allows company leaders to focus on products, revenue growth and direct value creation.

Know Thyself

The first job of finance is to help companies better understand all the financially related elements of existing operations. This is done via financial analysis and reporting. These two disciplines lead directly to the discovery of an organization’s current state and a strategic discussion of its desired future state, and drive the organization from any existing gaps toward remarkable success.

This is an inclusive process, touching every element of your organization. Sales, fundraising, marketing, operations, production and administrative activity all have economic impacts and can benefit from the data handling, process and analytic approaches of finance.

We help you break down your economics from the ground up:

Data -> Information -> Insight -> Action -> Results

Roadmap to Success

As you “know thyself” better, it allows you to lay out a financial plan to reach your goals. You’ve likely heard how writing down personal goals leads to clearly better results, and the same is true of building a real plan for the success of your entity. The very process of writing it down leads to innumerable benefits around understanding what it will take to get there. Building the plan results in a roadmap to success for your organization. If you don’t have that, you’re just making it up as you go.

We bring reference models and a proven process to building your forecast. The process connects the economics of the business to the vision of its leadership, building a clear path to the outcomes that company leaders, funders and stakeholders are striving for. The odds for success go up dramatically with a forecast that is well constructed and followed. It’s truly a game-changer.
