Focus on What Matters with Advivo

Well, it is hard to believe the first quarter of the financial year is now done and dusted. How did you fair? Did you hit your targets and achieve what you wanted? Before you know it, Melbourne Cup then Christmas will be here and another calendar year behind us.

If you want to make a real improvement in your business or just want to be sure you not only hit your goals in 2020 but smash them out of the ground, come along to our next event “Turbocharge your Business for 2020” on the 23rd of October where will have a team of experts to answer your questions and guide you to success. To register, please visit Eventbrite.

Please take the time to read the articles on systems automation, innovative accounting practices and having the right people do the right job. Far too often we focus too much on increasing sales and forget about saving costs; remember every dollar you save, you get 100 cents in the dollar, extra sales for most people (at an average extra profit margin of 30 to 40 %) mean you are only getting roughly 35 cents return on every dollar. Remember there’s always more than one way to look at things!

How To get the Right People doing the Right Job

We work with a lot of businesses and their staff. It is quite amazing how often we see major inefficiencies by having people doing the jobs that they are just not suited to.

At Advivo we work with clients to determine the right tasks within the business, and then help business owners determine which people should perform which roles. Click here to read more.
