We work using following systematic approach.

Understanding your expectations – Our first priority is to understand your expectations, aspirations, and the goal you want to achieve. For instance, you may be struggling with investment goals, paying vendors on time, financial stability, resource allocation, tracking revenue/collection, optimizing financing structure, or any other requirement you may come up with. It’s important to note that defining the purpose of engagement is the essential requirement to make it meaningful.

At this stage, we decide the frequency of measurement and variance analysis. For instance, you may be looking for weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly budget setting/targets or any other frequency more desirable related to industrial norms and practices in the construction industry.

Rest assured, project reports are drafted in an easy-to-read and professional layout, making it easier to compare actual numbers, calculate variances, and decide on corrective actions.

Data collection, performing analysis, and setting working model – Based on your requirements and expectations, we prepare a list of requirements to collect necessary information, documents, numbers, figures, and trends.

After setting & sorting the numbers, we develop a detailed understanding of revenue streams/collection and the nature of payments required and desired. For instance, settlement of the obligation is required, and meeting investment goals is desired.

Development of customized collection/payment plan—Based on expected cash movement, we draft a comprehensive plan in line with the defined time bracket. So, if excess cash inflow is planned, investment is planned, and vice versa.

Our financial model is based on historical data analysis, market analysis, scenario planning, time series analysis, trend analysis, regression analysis, and probability distribution/Monte Carlo simulation. Additionally, we believe to embrace modern trends like AI and machine learning, real-time data analytics, integrated planning helping to achieve better construction quality with optimized cost.

Actively monitor changes– The best part of our working approach is to actively monitor the factors contributing to change in the cash movement. For instance, any updated information like changes in project structure, project pricing, financing needs, material cost, manufacturing cost, fluctuations in salaries/wages, loan restructuring, variation in tax liabilities, inflation, shift in market competition, etc.

We keep updating the forecasted cash movement in line with the changes. This helps to keep the data highly relevant and enables you to make quick decision on controlling project cost and improving profitability.
