Introduction: Finance Has Changed
When we think of the word ‘finance’, we commonly associate it with stocks, accounts, closing books, reports, taxation, etc. The root word of ‘finance’ is the Latin for ‘limit’ or ‘end’; experts who work with companies experiencing rapid growth would say that these words, in turn, are limiting the potential of finance.
Mosaic Finance believes that numbers are not just for calculation but also for navigation.
The market is fluid, with more variables to consider and process now more than ever. The way toolkits and data are used has also changed. We can no longer rely on older strategies, not when the template is ever-changing and customized for every business.
What Is Strategic Financial Planning, And Why Do Your Business Need It?
The most rudimentary definition of strategic planning is to use your company’s resources, not simply for function, but with an intention. When the responsibilities of a CFO are no longer simply built on accounting and financial expertise but also creativity, organizational skills, client management, and analytical prowess, the tools used for budgeting and financial planning need to be upgraded as well. Using primitive tried-and-tested methods against a drastically modern scenario is only a waste of time.
Lack of financial planning means that numbers are controlling you. And Mosaic Finance knows how to help the company take back this control.
Many companies rarely look into the financial aspects of their business when researching possible ideas and avenues for growth. We often mistake ‘planning’ to simply mean ‘organizing’; making sure the numbers are in order, nothing is amiss, the math is correct—these are details that are important to look after but often also limit the ability of the company to look forward. When we look at these numbers, all we’re doing is looking back at how we have done. The focus is not on what the company can do but what could have been done.
Using Mosaic’s platform, you not only enhance data analytics for a pre-analysis but also work towards a reliable forecast, a post-analysis, of your company’s objectives. By changing the way you look at your finances, you also improve the brand reputation of your company. Instead of working from a place of caution, you transform your workforce into one that knows the bigger picture and is not afraid to cut themselves off from short-term, temporary gains. When your business moves with the knowledge that it is on the same page as the changing market, it automatically reflects on and attracts prospective investors.
