Our client stories
Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve achieved for some of our clients, and what they’ve said about us.Â
Guidance and growth – Metis help steer a subsidiary of a US based Â pharmaceutical firm towards a more solid financial base, achievinggrowth of 25% in sales and 35% growth in net profit and an exuberant client. ‘We needed advice on a business level. We needed more than what an accountant could offer. We needed commercial and strategic advice.’ Metis was able to analyse and identify the weakness in the foundations of the business, implement the financial systems and process transformation required to deliver a sustainably profitable business. From sales quote to cash at bank, Metis meticulously analysed the profitability of each client relationship and the cost of each process used in the delivery of the product and services of the company. Â The focus on improved quality and efficiency, combined with better pricing has transformed the company’s bottom line and delivered stronger cash flow and a healthier balance sheet.
Overhaul of finance department – A Sydney based retail pharmacy group Â needed to improve its finance processes and reporting to meet complex customer and compliance reporting obligations. On consultation with Metis , the client Â chose to implement a fast, high-quality and cost-effective solution while they re-examined their long-term business strategy and planning. Metis provided the client with five finance experts as an outsourced solution to assess the finance department, identify gaps and capabilities, implement solutions to achieve these, and consolidate accounting platforms. Our short-term solution grew into a long-term involvement, as our client organisation saw its finance systems streamlined, reporting accuracy and timeliness climb, compliance obligations met on time and staff morale soar. Importantly the outsourced solution for the client cost less than the maintenance of an in-house finance team. Our client commented: ‘The cost of providing financial services decreased, thanks to a reduction in head-count of finance staff, and cost-savings achieved as fewer management and operational staff were needed to support the finance team.’
