Running a business isn’t easy. Thankfully, there are plenty of services available that promise to make managing company finances a little simpler. At UWM, we’re big fans of the all-in-one forecasting and reporting engine, CrunchBoards. It packs a serious punch when it comes to monitoring business activities. Whether you want to minimise risks, expand operations or boost profits, CrunchBoards can help. In this blog post, we’ll explore how.
Powerful Three-Way Forecasting
Your business isn’t one dimensional, and your forecasting strategies shouldn’t be either. With CrunchBoards on your side you’ll be armed with a powerful tool that offers insight into the past, present and future of your business stats. The intelligent forecasting and reporting engine transforms data into stunning visual management reports and KPIs that can then be used to build forecasts and set budgets. Best of all, custom management reporting allows for the creation of bespoke, highly customised reports.
Integration with Xero
It’s no secret that Xero is one of the world’s favourite online accounting software solution. As Xero GOLD Partners, we’ve experienced first hand the incredible results that Xero delivers for businesses, so we can certianly understand why Xero is so popular.
CrunchBoards loves Xero just as much as the next small business, which is why it developed their award-winning all-in-one Forecasting and Reporting add-on. Daily syncs automatically pull in every transaction for an utterly up-to-the-minute overview of key data. This integration of forecasting and reporting into one powerful add-on makes crunching numbers a breeze. As the company famously proclaims, “It’s big data, for small business.”

From PCs and laptops to mobile phones and tablets, the platform allows businesses to access comprehensive forecasting and reporting data from anywhere, at any time, on any device. Plus, the multi-device functionality means team members can remotely access information, whether they’re on-site or in the field.
A case study
When one of the UK’s most popular bar chains came to us looking for innovative accounting solutions, we knew we could help. After opening two additional UK branches, Mojo Bar Group was encountering logistical problems maintaining 52 Excel spreadsheets per site.
“It was impossible to clearly see how the business was performing, and then another year rolled in. It kept getting harder, not easier,” recalls owner Martin Greenhow. Luckily, UWM Director Jonathan Myers was able to give Mojo Bar Group a crystal clear outlook on all operations by introducing Xero and CrunchBoards. The result? A dramatic reduction in response rates, and a soaring bottom line. And when we soaring, we mean it. In its first 12 months CrunchBoard tripled Bar Group’s profits.
“If things go right or wrong, we’re on it. The speed that you can implement change to leverage success or address warning areas is incredible. In the past, we’d serve customers day in, day out, and we might be running a certain product line at a loss, we just couldn’t see that without CrunchBoards. It’s the full financial picture,” says Martin.
Impressive results, we’re sure you’ll agree. It’s amazing how much of an impact the right software can make on a business. Could your business benefit from CrunchBoards?
