A Solid Foundation

An organizations’ Financial foundation is the most crucial step on their journey to growth. Precision matters more than ever. Are you tired of hiring those claiming to be FP&A experts but cannot even land the basics? The focus should be ensuring that your foundation is not merely secure but equipping it to thrive.

Both short-term and long-term goals are considered when you become a Sobo client. The significance of accuracy is in focus when we take our time to breakdown a company’s innermost workings. Getting executives one step closer to business decisions that create real impact.

Sobo will ensure that your financial transactions are recorded and documented properly so that you can sleep at night knowing the right financial information is immediately within grasp.

Accounting

Interpreting precise data is necessary, though our accounting services go beyond mere interpretation.

Financial Advisory Vs. Fractional CFO Services

Unlike a full-time CFO whom directs general financial strategy or an interim CFO who performs financial duties in-between a full-time hire taking place; a Fractional CFO’s duties are on a project by project basis. Up until now Fractional CFO’s are thought to be the best solution for companies’ challenges.

Now, as the business world continues to evolve a Fractional CFO is often not solely dependable enough to carry the needs of a full-sized organization. A team of Advisors is better suited for the advanced and foundational challenges that companies face.

Why Is Financial Advisory the Better Solution?

Many small to mid-sized companies already have bookkeepers & accountants. Unlike in-house resources, a financial advisory team provides goal-oriented, results-driven expertise in Basic & Advanced accounting practices as well as FP&A at a fraction of the cost of a Fractional CFO. Compared with Fractional CFOs who bill at a fixed cost of up to $1,000 per hour.

On top of that, our experience has been that outsourced CFO objectives are not always transparent or well defined. Decision makers often end up with bills that have multiple hours beyond scope of work. After all, Fractional CFOs are not accustomed to oversight, and due to their focus on managing client relationships, the actual accounting & finance work gets left behind. Unfortunately, Fractional CFOs often end up overpromising and under delivering. Contact finance@onesobo.com for a complimentary Financial Performance Scorecard.

A Problem Worth Solving

Financial data is a powerful asset. Are decision makers truly cognizant of how impactful it can be? Does a company’s financial competence have a meaningful impact on organizational growth? Businesses with sadly deficient internal financial information are more likely to make bad decisions that affect their overall business. With us your company will go from basic bookkeeping to strategic financial management.

We don’t just use spreadsheets and quickbooks. Our Financial Advisory teams are data-empowered, results-driven and communicative. Whether you’re looking to hire on a full or part-time basis, hire a fractional CFO, a full time CFO or seeking insight into your financial strategy we provide a solution catered to you.
