"We now have access to every aspect of the financial expertise we need as a growing business; RS really does offer a great service”

Simon Wainewright, Director

The Challenge

  • Tile & Floor had seen four-fold growth in 5 years.
  • This brought operational challenges and the directors’ sights were set on further expansion.
  • To shape for growth and execute the planned strategy, they needed a wider breadth of financial expertise and support.
  • They also needed to fully utilise the combined power of their client management tool, WorkflowMax and accounting software Xero.

“A strategic review highlighted the exciting markets we were part of – we wanted to capitalise further on these but needed the right level of support to do it.”

The Solution

  • A review of the systems and processes by RS provides streamlined financial control and consistent management reporting to help the business cashflow and operational efficiency.
  • Regular reviews of business performance inform strategic decision making.
  • Funding for working capital and expansion was secured with RS’s guidance.
  • Payroll management was outsourced to RS, saving the management team essential time.
