"The brief was to establish an operating system for measuring and monitoring a major new social care contract involving over 120 service users and 200,000 hours of care delivery per annum. Within four weeks they converted raw data into a fully integrated model, which provided profit and loss analysis, KPIs and with detailed financial projections. The end product was extremely well presented and can be used as a template for measuring and monitoring future contracts"
Roger Queen, Chairman, SLC Group
"Optimal Financial Consultancy delivered a first rate financial model that was invaluable in reviewing strategic options, and also created a first class reporting package using data exported from Sage. Atholl's ability to swiftly pick up the complexities of the organisation and its environment were excellent, and his advice was always sound"
Adam Fox-Edwards, Chief Executive, Walgrove Limited
"Atholl built the financial modelling reports for Woodhurst to enable the data to merge directly from Sage. He was a pleasure to work with and I would welcome working with him again."
Shelley Hawkins, Finance Manager, Woodhurst Ltd
Atholl delivered an outstanding business model to obtain funding for four potential acquisitions. The bank originally requested that a big 4 firm be engaged to build the financial model at a cost of tens of thousands of pounds. I agreed with the bank that Atholl develop the model which would then be audited by PWC. The model was developed to tight timescales, involved multiple scenarios, and was audited in detail by PWC. The fexibility and quality of the model ensured that it came through audit successfully.
