Profitability Improvement and Cost Control
Most Malaysian SMEs still lack proper profitability and costing analysis. This results in a lack of understanding of product mix profitability as well as effective price setting. As a result, there is insufficient business intelligence to plan effective promotion strategies and maximise profits.
Many SMEs also do not utilise budgeting, which can act as a powerful planning and motivation tool to ensure you meeting your business objectives.
Different businesses have different needs and different organisation structures which will require different information needs and systems to formulate proper budgeting.
