Finance Professionals Explore “Getting Behind the Numbers” To Assess Fluctuations in Sales and Increase Profitability

CLIFTON, N.J., June 6, 2014 – At its recent Financial Managers Forum, SaxBST brought together finance professionals from small- to mid-sized businesses to explore the use of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to increase a company’s profitability. Entitled “Maximizing the Performance and Profitability of Your Business,” the interactive program offered attendees the opportunity to learn best practices from SaxBST Partners Marc Blumenthal, Joseph Shannon and Joseph Damiano as well as from each other. The program, which qualified for CPE credits, is part of SaxBST’s ongoing industry education series.

During the forum, the group addressed how to “get behind the numbers” to assess what is driving fluctuations in sales numbers and also discussed how to present the data in an impactful manner to stakeholders.
