The easiest way to make money is to stop losing it…

One of the major challenges facing a number of my clients and most businesses right now is responding to the economic situation in the appropriate manner.

After several years of growth and largess, sales are diving but many businesses have been caught like rabbits in car headlights. How to respond? What to do?

To enable businesses to make the right decisions they need accurate costings allocated to products or service streams.
