Perhaps more than any of the other services we provide, business analysis does exactly what it says on the tin! Here’s how we see it:

The aim of business analysis is for you to get a much deeper understanding of the issues that you’re facing in your business. In particular, we can help you to understand what’s causing these problems to arise, and give recommendations of what you can do to put them right.

Often, we’ll find that systems are no longer fit for purpose. Normally this is because they’ve been in place for years, and that while the business has changed, grown or moved into new markets, the systems haven’t been updated to cope. Or, it’ll be that the processes people are following are antiquated, and don’t make the most of new opportunities in technology, meaning there’s duplication in data entry or time consuming, paper-based processes.

Our team of consultants and analysts will come into your business and spend time with people at all key sites and in all key areas. Recent examples of this include a major procurement company, involving site visits to 6 different locations, across multiple products and all departments in the business. We look into the processes and systems in operation (including all those pieces of paper and spreadsheets you might have!). Because we’ve got chartered accountants, retail, food, distribution and manufacturing expertise in PKF Cooper Parry, we’re able to speak the same language as your staff, and ask the right questions to get our answers to all the unusual one-off scenarios that you’ve got in your company. Then, we’ll identify the issues, explain to you concisely their impact, and offer our recommendations. We can present this back to you in a written report, system flow diagrams, or a presentation to your management team – or a combination of these to suit you.

You can rest assured that even though we implement Microsoft Dynamics NAV, our business analysis is truly system agnostic. We never recommend a system we don’t think will suit you; after all, we’d be the ones implementing it!
