Why we believe in focusing on

Why we believe finance is no longer a cost center but a profit driver

Most finance professionals don’t like to be at the forefront. They mostly prefer to stay away from the spotlights, working in the background to facilitate business processes and providing key figures to colleagues, allowing them to implement succesful business strategies. This has led to the misconception that finance is a cost center, and therefore not contributing to profit. This conclusion is completely unjustified!


At Key Figures we believe processes are essential components to create a succesful organisation, allowing results to be predicted more accurately. A higher predictability helps companies to realise a determined vision and a long-term plan, facilitating investments to further grow revenues, regardless of the size, type of industry or complexity of the value chain.


When there is a clear strategy in place, finance can help build the cockpit the management team needs to achieve the short-, mid- and long-term goals of the company.  Every finance professional plays an essential role in determining which key figures need to be provided on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly basis to secure the strategy is implemented and corrected if the markers are heading the danger zone. Finance is here to support!

Key Figures, Key Processes and Key People

Our passion originates from the fact that we have been working in finance ourselves for several years. We know what kind of efforts it takes for a finance director to deliver clear business messages to the management team.

We also realise what a tough job the senior accountant has to do to ensure all client files are in sync with the relevant deadlines within an accountancy firm.


All finance professionals agree with the argument that it’s always about Key Figures, Key Processes and Key People.

That’s what makes finance work, for the business.
