Sage Financial Forecasting

Scorpion Automotive is a big worldwide brand, which has for many years been associated with quality innovative products/supplies into the automotive industry. 

Managing Director, Mark Downing comments on the changes he has made since acquiring the brand in January 2016. 
Mark considers forecasting throughout the business to be one of the most important functions.

"We have to know where we're going as a business and what the implications of our strategy and the plans that we've laid down" he comments.


Before using Sage Financial Forecasting, Mark used simple spreadsheets, but found them time consuming.  Using Sage Financial Forecasting as a basic tool, Mark has been able to grow his business, watch it expand and remain successful.  A key element of this is the company's relationship with the bank and with financial backers of the business.

"The ability we have now to produce timely information means I can talk with the bank about funding requirements that are coming up in the near future.  Because of the growth that we are experiencing and the opportunities that are coming through this really gives me an opportunity to plan properly and always be able to arrange the funding requirements that the business needs, without any drama."


Would Mark recommend Sage Financial Forecasting to others?

"I would say that if there is one thing that a small business must have it is some form of financial forecasting package.  I have tried several, the best system that I've ever come across is the one that I'm now using therefore I can recommend it unreservedly to anyone who wants to get their business under control."
