As the company develops, many of the systems currently used will no longer meet the requirements of the business. Adapting working practices and systems is an essential area of a successful business. Pre-empting what the business will need going forward and ensuring that your processes and systems enable you to progress smoothly, rather than hindering your advancement.
Improvements to systems include setting up cloud-based applications to better meet your company’s requirements.
Some of the services we can provide in this area are:
With technology and industry constantly evolving and changing, adapting to the current climate or preparing for changes to come is an essential area to keep focused on.

"You need experienced people who have run companies of the size you intend to be, not the size you currently are."
Have you considered the following:
Do you have a clear growth strategy in place for your business? Have you set aside enough money for progression? Have you anticipated the cash flow demands of this growth? Have you thought about an exit strategy? ARM can provide you with the administrative back bone to ensure stable growth.
In order to ensure your business expands without struggling to cope with operational issues, your business needs to have adequate administrative support. As more resources are added and the business expands, it creates more paperwork and company tasks, and a lack of administration support, alongside inefficient processes and systems could keep you from identifying and correcting job and sales issues. If your senior management are continually required to perform administration tasks, it will have an effect on your income and business potential.
Running a business without a business plan which is periodically reviewed can leave a business rudderless and can lead to reactive decision making and financial struggles.
A good business plan should map the future of your business. It isn’t just important at the beginning of a business to secure funding, but helps your senior management manage your business more effectively.
It can also allow you to consider and detail alternative scenarios for the future, set specific objectives and aims for the company, and plan the resources needed to achieve those goals.
Your plan can help your business grow by helping to secure funding and investment; can help your senior management team understand and keep aligned on the future development of your company; help manage your cash flow; and support your exit strategy (whether by acquisition, merger, succession or other exit).
ARM has experience of preparing, analysing and reviewing all types of business plans in all sizes of company. We can help you in establishing a suitable business plan tailored for your business.
Continual improvement is the best way to develop your business and ensure your operations adapt to your company’s growth.
We can review your current processes, systems and policies and make custom recommendations to ensure harmonisation and efficiency within your administration and operations across your company.
ARM can help your company control your operating costs. Without doing so, your company may not be able to compete effectively in your industry.
Our experience has shown that reactive decisions and activities to reduce operating costs have included closures and transfers of facilities, significant personnel reductions and efforts to increase automation. However, in doing so, the reduction of personnel and closure of facilities could adversely affect and hinder your ability to manufacture and supply products, or provide services to meet your customer’s expectations and demands.
By helping you to control and optimise your operations, you can avoid the need to make drastic actions by making marginal gains instead. The idea behind this is that if you improve everything by 1%, those small gains add up to a remarkable improvement which your company can reap the benefits of.
