Business Analytics Challenge
Struggling to gain a competitive edge in your business industry?
Startups and SMBs are challenged to identify a competitive advantage to differentiate themselves from their competitors. One way to achieve this differentiation is by collecting and harnessing data to identify opportunities and make smarter decisions. Businesses need to rely on strategic business analytics and intelligence rather than guesswork and emotion in making decisions. As a result, businesses are now collecting more data than ever before. However, this does not always translate into valuable and actionable insights as a business must have the right tools and technologies for collecting and visualising data.
What's the Business Analytics Solution?
To help transform data into intelligence and insights, a business needs to develop a framework which answers the questions such as what has happened (descriptive analysis), the root cause behind it (diagnostic analysis), what might happen in the future (predictive analysis) and what should be done about it (prescriptive analysis). FirstLink provides a full-service business analytics solution which includes hardware, software, and data experts to help management understand their customers, predict purchases and trends, analyse and interpret behavior, and make data driven decisions. It includes:

For us, what distinguishes FirstLink from the many accountants we’ve dealt with in the past is their adoption of modern technology to reduce the tedious and administrative processes and their focus on providing clients with not only accounting services but value added advisory and consulting services. As business owners, we’re not necessarily savvy in finance or legal, however, we can always depend on FirstLink for any issue we are facing. We feel like the relationship with FirstLink is more partners for life as oppose to just a client – accountant relationship.
The team at FirstLink introduced our business to Xero accounting. It has given us a lot more control over our financial information and for non-accountants; it is extremely easy to use. The Xero Mobile App easily allows us to send invoices to our customers on the go and tracks when the invoices have been viewed by them. I would definitely recommend Xero and FirstLink to anyone looking to implement cloud software to gain real time financial information to improve their business.
