The problem we were having was that I, as the business owner, was spending too much time in the Finance seat. Part of that was because I like the FP&A part, but part of it was because we did not have an overall controller for the business. I also do not GWC the accounting aspects of the job or the process development piece. I felt like we were constantly spending time fixing mistakes. It was frustrating to consume both my time and my money to go back and fix mistakes, rather than doing things right the first time around. SNS’s product was different because they ran on EOS, like us, had a unique background that also included incorporating BI, and were hungry and energetic as an entrepreneurial start-up. SNS had a proven process that was well-defined about the phases we would go through as we entered into the relationship.
Moments when we realized the SNS process was starting to work and solving problems:
Our SNS fCFO is now helping us hire and train a full-time financial controller. I feel like we are already saving time of fixing mistakes and saving money in terms of extra CPA fees to “check/fix our books.” We are about to complete a year with almost 50% growth, and I hope to keep our SNS fCFO as part of our team for a while longer given the stability she brings and the overall leadership beyond her finance and accounting skills.
