This is a service specifically for Finance Professionals wanting to build business intelligence methods into their Business Advisor role – for use with their clients or within their employer.

A Business Advisor is both an Accountant and a guide and mentor, able to guide their clients or their employer through the critical decisions that lead to growth.  And, at every step along the way make such a difference that the client looks back and says:

We couldn’t have made it this far without our Business Advisor

The opportunities to make such a difference are increasing every day.   This is because data analysis that can deliver critical insights is becoming easier.  The data is taken from a range of sources, not just the resident Accounting or Finance systems.  And analysis of that data has the potential to explain and predict cashflows, uncover the inner workings of core processes, provide insights into ways to take cost out of a business without harming service levels.

A Business Advisor is both an Accountant and a guide and mentor, able to guide their clients or their employer through the critical decisions that lead to growth.  And, at every step along the way make such a difference that the client looks back and says:

The opportunities to make such a difference are increasing every day.   This is because data analysis that can deliver critical insights is becoming easier.  The data is taken from a range of sources, not just the resident Accounting or Finance systems.  And analysis of that data has the potential to explain and predict cashflows, uncover the inner workings of core processes, provide insights into ways to take cost out of a business without harming service levels.

It’s important to grasp these opportunities because ‘fintech’ is changing the world of Finance.   On the one hand it is providing Finance professionals with a better set of tools.  But on the other it is equipping clients and employers to do so much more for themselves.  Finance professionals therefore need to develop a new set of services relating to information that the new cloud based fintech applications cannot provide.

For this they need data, specifically non financial data that can provide key measures of operational performance, or indicators of customer sentiment, or insights into cultural changes within the business.

At Develin we offer a programme of support that equips Business Advisors to identify the data they need to strengthen their advisory role, and turn it into insights for their clients and employers that will make them stand out as skilled and very informed Advisors that the business cannot do without.

Knowledge & understanding – an expanding on-line knowledge base that shows how to use data to help businesses become more efficient, effective and able to grow.

Technology – a cloud based dashboard for you to use with your clients – capable of reading and modelling data from multiple sources.

Support – help with data, and tools and frameworks with which you can collect and model the data needed.
