Recent projects with clients include:
Staff often have little to no experience developing a budget or interacting with department managers and leadership during the budget process. KREG trains and mentors staff to develop those skills. We work both remotely and on site with a mutally developed training curriculum to turn your team into a lean, mean budgeting and reporting machine.
Short staffed or small staffed, you still must produce information for stakeholders in a timely fashion. KREG professionals remotely access your data, update databases, reconcile to internal source documents then electronically publish reports and key metrics for your department managers, and senior leadership. We even facilitate discussions with managers about financial education and help them understand and explain variances. You sleep easier knowing data is distributed and people are reviewing and managing to expectations.
General Ledger Conversion
New systems bring a host of issues beyond implementation. History is lost, inaccessible or not comparable to the new structure. KREG professionals perform numerous General Ledger Conversions annually thereby preserving historical data for future reporting. This allows you to compare old system history to new system data easily and efficiently. Our experts ensure a complete crosswalk, reconciling every bit of data at every step. KREG ensures you have data to bridge the systems for your analytics.
Budgeting and Financial Reporting
KREG helps you develop your budget, from designing forms, collecting and consolidating data, P&L reporting, through developing a report set and presentations for Board meetings.
We meet with department managers and senior leadership to develop strategy around your objectives. This flexible approach combines budget approaches that fit your needs including zero-based, volume based, projected and multi-year forecasting, and we use any and all depending on specific areas in your organization.
After the budget is complete and approved, we can develop a series of reports to communicate key data and host roll out education service for your users. You can relax knowing the method and model has been carefully screened based on the specific area and department managers are well informed about the financial reporting aspects of the organization.
Slash and burn staff reductions often backfire. It results in excessive overtime, agency usage and staff burn-out over time.
We work with senior leadership to develop realistic standards, systems and processes to effectively implement and monitor productivity. Our communication and feedback process generates open dialogue among all involved parties. On-going monitoring ensures the process stays on track.
We can revisit and refine the model at any time, such as the case when the implementation of new technology may create workflow improvements.
Whether seeking a bond offering or looking to refinance, the first requested information will be financial in nature. KREG professionals trend your data over time developing multi-year forecasting at a granular level providing you the answers you need. Be confident you will know ‘what’s in there’ as you work through financing.
Advanced Analytics/Financial Pro-Formas
Often you don’t have time to wait for your Decision Support/Business Intelligence department to run a slew of reports, or you don’t have a Decision Support system. KREG professionals can assist by pulling information together from various internal sources (GL, cost report, labor reports) to provide the information you need for decision making.
Capital Budget Development
Whether it is for a single or multi-year horizon, KREG helps you develop your capital budget, from designing forms, collecting and consolidating data, approval & on-going tracking of capital item expenditures. Our system allows for unlimited user defined fields which allow us to capture cost elements like construction and IT costs that may fall below the radar screen, yet will contribute to significant variances.
