ABOUT

Ariem provides financial and operational management services to growing businesses. Due to our extensive experience, we are able to provide professional Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Chief Operating Officer (COO) services, whether you are a sole proprietor or a small/mid-sized company. We work directly with the Owner/President or designated staff of your organization almost exclusively at client site.

At Ariem, we are trained as being business people first and second to be accountants/auditors – we understand the factors that make businesses successful.

Owners can use Ariem as someone to bounce ideas off, or to discuss organizational issues.

Finance

Analyzing the crucial elements of your company’s cash flow and financial statements is a necessary component to running a successful business. Ariem provides an operational financial role that will involve financial analysis and operation results analysis.  The comprehensive assessment we provide ultimately improves bottom-line profitability and ensures your company allocates its financial resources accordingly.

Our financial services include:

  • Budget planning and implementation
  • Forecasting/Cash Flow projections
  • Assist in preparing financing proposals to lenders
  • Year-end summary preparation (financial and narrative) for stakeholders
  • Financial staff assessment
  • Maintain accounting records
Operational

Assessing the logistics of how a company functions is essential in providing an effective operational analysis.  A thorough risk/opportunity assessment allows Ariem to create a strategic plan for the short-term and longevity of the company.  We provide systems assessment and development, process flows and identify Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s).

Our team takes on an “advisory role” and will be the sounding board to the Owner, President, or Senior Management employees, who are directly involved with the overall operations of the company.  From a macro perspective, Ariem will analyze the current organizational structure and provide insight into a structure suited for your company.

Ariem can assist in providing acquisition searches for suitable companies or real estate. Ariem can also assist in the sale of your business, while maintaining confidentiality.

Soft Issues

Soft issues are a component of running any business and are likely to arise weekly, if not daily. Acknowledging and dealing with these concerns proactively will definitely assist in smoother operations of your company.  Ariem will develop a deep understanding of the business and establish a relationship with the key decision makers/owners of the company to help alleviate problems and create effective strategies that will develop into a strong corporate culture.

Owners can use Ariem as someone to bounce ideas off, or to discuss organizational issues.
