Being the CFO, you are the eyes and ears for your investors. You need a higher view of what your businesses are doing and be able to translate that to the people that most likely don’t have financial information. I think Sageworks give you that ability to do that. It helps provide reports and detailed information to our investors so they know that their money is working well for them or not working well for them.

By taking a look at your financials from the outside in, which is by comparing yourself pretty rigorously to what your competitors are and what is the average in the industry, you’re allowing yourself not to be complacent and forcing yourself to take action before a crisis. It enables you to be more proactive from a leadership view.

It would take a huge amount of time to assemble all the information that Sageworks assembles for me. Unless you’re the clear #1 in your product segment, having a view of your own enterprise through the eyes of your competitors is important because your customers will be doing that so you mine as well.
