Profitability improvement, organizational effectiveness, and quality management are three important components of the operational analysis services provided by Centrec. Our effectiveness in these areas is directly tied to our ability to integrate key competitiveness issues with a quick grasp of the internal business processes that create value, cost or both. Services provided in this area include:
— If a particular business unit or enterprise is experiencing sub-optimal performance, we can provide a fresh and independent analysis of the unit’s historical and projected performance. Each project is unique, but typically includes an assessment of the current operations, identification and analysis of the driving economic factors, and the development and analysis of future alternatives.
— For smaller businesses, hiring a full-time Chief Financial Officer does not make economic sense. In these situations, Centrec serves the role of a CFO on a part-time basis assisting with setup and implementation of record keeping and accounting systems, financial and managerial reporting system integration, and analysis of financial records to aid in decision making.
— Designed for smaller organizations, Centrec’s diagnostic review product involves a comprehensive review of the firm’s historic and projected profitability, financial structure, management team responsibilities, information systems, and relative competitive position. Based on this review and an assessment of goals, we are able to help the owners formulate appropriate strategies for the future.
— Centrec provides a variety of litigation support services and has served in both consultative and expert witness roles in antitrust, bankruptcy, and commercial cases. Analysis and testimony have included business valuation, industry and market analysis, firm-level financial analysis and lost profit determination, and credit delivery practice.
