From 2013 - 2019 we successfully partnered with a heritage German Brand, Clemens Spieltiere GmbH to bring their unique and quality teddy bears, soft toys and collectibles to the Australian, Canadian and United States markets. Prior to our relationship, Clemens Spieltiere GmbH only experienced a limited market share in these countries. Through creation of a quality website, relationship building with customers and retailers, attending trade fairs, developing a strategic plan and creating new sales channels we increased sales by over 500% in first 24 months.
Our strengths are the ability to engage and connect with customers, develop a strategic business plan, and respond to market with branding that is sensitive and brand conscious. For German companies looking to gain exposure to the Australian market we are ideally placed to assist. Also, for companies based in Australia looking to enter, or further expand into, the European market - we have the expertise to help.
Small and Medium sized businesses
We have conducted due-diligence, recommended and implemented cloud based management accounting solutions (XERO, MYOB and Quickbooks) for many SME's. This has resulted in management and owners being able to monitor real-time financial health of their businesses whilst bookkeepers can also work on the data remotely. We provide overview, assurance and monitoring of business and clear and concise reporting on business performance to management and owners.
We have provided remote accounting services such as financial controller and management consulting services which have ensured management can make evidence-based decisions having confidence in the integrity of the data outputs from the management accounting function.
We have added value for clients by examining their business strategy and conducting a SWOT analysis and a review of strategic assets and how they are being utlised. One example was a client who was unsure of where their products were in the market. Our review determined that a premium pricing strategy was appropriate as there was limited competition and the products were unique and difficult to copy. The client increased prices and sales actually increased as the price was perceived to being an indicator of quality. Sales and profitability increased materially.
