In today’s competitive times, it is imperative for businesses to have timely, up to date financial advice. In this context, especially Small and Medium Business (SMB) promoters find it tough to get expert CFOs who will partner with them to plan daily cash flows, monitor budgets, manage receivables and payables and develop timely and incisive MIS reports, the absence of which can spell disaster for the business. CFOs cost a bundle and most SMBs cannot afford their services. SuperCFO’s Virtual CFO solution offers SMBs a vital avenue to get expert CFOs at sharp costs backed by an able back office managerial support, and cutting edge analytics powered by SuperCFO BI.
