Beyond Breakeven is the profit maximization tool. A tool that allows simple and complex business decisions to be made with a more complete understanding of the cost parameters determining profitability. The difference between the right decision and the wrong decision is often the difference between a profit and a loss, and we give you the tools to make better decisions.
Many financial analysis tools focus on strategization based on standardized industry ratios, but not Beyond Breakeven. In order to maximize a businesses profitability from any given revenue flow, costs must be appropriately designed as fixed or variable. Under certain revenue and cost situations, fixed costs are preferable to variable costs, because greater profitability can be achieved at the margin, but if revenue levels are not achieved to capture the fixed costs, then variable costs may be preferable because of greater flexibility. Understanding these costs can be confusing, and how to apply them in any expected scenario can change, so most businesses ignore the matter, feeling the complexity is beyond their control. With Beyond Breakeven, Spreadware has again simplified advanced financial modeling.
With Beyond Breakeven, users are able to define a business, and its associated costs and revenues. The costs are broken down by fixed and variable, and can be compared with up to 9 "What if?" models, which show profitability, or lack thereof, under alternate scenarios, highlighting how the model differs from the standard model. Though this is extremely valuable information, it is only the beginning. Beyond Breakeven also provides:
- Situation modeling. Provided in two forms, Scenario and Solution, this type of modeling provides a glimpse of the business modeled under various situations. The modeling can be applied to any of the models, so one model can be evaluated, or multiple models compared. While Scenario modeling alters a business to fit a specific cost or revenue profile, Solution modeling shows what the business would have to do to achieve target levels of profitability.
- Forecasting. Based on revenue growth rates, model(s) can be forecast, with their associated expenses, for better planning. Also, there are chart options associated with forecasting, including the ability to overlay "What if?" models on the Standard model for quick comparison.
- Analysis. Three are immediately available. Individual Model performs a detailed analysis in report form, and highlights the impact of minor operating changes. Contribution Margin determines how much revenue a unit of each item - of which 200 can be modeled - will contribute to overhead and profit, while the Expense Ratio breaks down and charts expenses. Using these tools allows a business to understand which costs they may need to better control, and which products are best helping the company achieve its goals, as well as those that may be hindering the business.
With Beyond Breakeven, businesses are able to better maximize profitability under existing revenues, and plan for the future. Many will find that it is not always cheaper to farm out much of their business, while others will learn they need greater flexibility. Whatever the outcome, your business can now easily apply advanced financial modeling techniques usually reserved for only the largest of companies and their consultants.
