Field Examinations

Based on our broad experience providing services for numerous enterprises, both large and small, across a broad spectrum of industries, we are able to quickly grasp the important financial drivers and collateral issues as they relate to your borrowers. We are able to assist you with designing appropriate procedures to address the issues and risks that face lenders.

Back Office and Financial Close Studies

We have assisted middle-market and public companies in analyzing their back-office functions in order to identify areas of improvement and opportunities for cost reduction. Additionally, we have evaluated financial close cycles and processes in order to help our clients condense the monthly, quarterly or annual closing cycle and improve efficiencies.

Cost Control Services

If you are not effectively controlling the costs in your business, then you are not controlling your business. Effective cost control is essential in managing a stable and profitable organization. Our team of experienced business professionals can work with you to analyze potential areas of cost savings through better cost controls. There are both visible and hidden costs in your organization. Let Schneider Downs shed some light on the opportunities to reduce these costs throughout your organization.

Productivity Consulting

Are your business processes efficient and driven by a sense of "value" or "productivity"? In today' s competitive landscape, all of your processes need to be "lean and mean" in order for you to stay competitive and profitable. Our experienced operations consultants can assist you in determining which processes are working and which ones are not. By examining the entire process from start to finish, we can assist you in identifying process bottlenecks, system weaknesses, lost time, rework, and a wide variety of opportunities to eliminate waste. We can provide ideas and recommendations on how to improve your processes, and in turn improve your business.
