This program is ideal for any contracting business, from large to small, that wants to monitor its growth and profitability on a monthly business.

This is accomplished with the integration of three specific elements that, when taken together, provide a business with the financial tools and the knowledge to use them in the most effective way possible…tools to help you Learn, Measure, Plan and Manage for success.

eFO brings together three key elements to help businesses attain greater cash flow and profitability. This is accomplished with the integration of three specific elements that, when taken together, provide a business with the financial tools and the knowledge to use them in the most effective way possible…tools to help you Learn, Measure, Plan and Manage for success.

Element Number 1: Learn the important keys to profitability

At FinancialSoft, we have learned from experience that MOST people do not understand financial statements, much less how to use them effectively as business management tools. Worse, people are often emb

arrassed about their lack of financial knowledge so the subject is buried and only briefly addressed at an annual tax meeting with a financial professional.
eFO provides you with Tutorials, a Terminology Glossary and Videos (coming soon) that address and explain all of the elements of your eFO Report. The system is designed for ease of use and understanding. At the end of each month, when your books are closed, simply log into your eFO account and run your report. The report itself includes all of the helpful references needed to understand and implement the strategies you need to focus on to maximize your business profitability.
