Entreflow Consulting Group's use of Fathom

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Given that our CEO, Helina Patience used to be a financial analyst, it’s probably not a surprise to many of you that this is one of her favorite apps to use at Entreflow. So I absolutely love this app and it's one of those apps that I can safely say is suitable for absolutely every business and business owner. It has a super easy ratio and profitability analysis. For those of you who are a little bit rusty in your ratios, it explains what those are and also has the definitions for your clients too

Pros:

Our favourite feature is the sensitivity analysis. Within the app you can do “what if” analyses to see “If we grow our sales by this much, what does that mean to our net income?”, “If we change our mix by this much, what does that mean for our net income?” and there's a whole bunch of different things you can look at, but it's literally toggling a little bar around and it gives you a really clear indicator of how you would do. And then within the app itself, if you're sitting there with a client using the app you can actually see animation occur to show you a bigger picture of what's going on. You can also click on certain aspects to drill down and get more information which is just amazing given the amount of work that used to go into doing this in Excel.

Cons:

We would love to be able to bring in non-financial data, and data from other sources like Google Analytics, your CRM information, your ERP, your Facebook analytics. Native connections brought there, or at least be able to connect data to a Google sheet so that on the non-financial KPI (key performance indicators) side of things, you can pull that data in super easily and get a bigger picture without having to manually enter anything in.

Quick, clean, accurate financial statements and reports

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: Fathom saves us hundreds (yes, hundreds) of hours per month in labor since we can build a template and copy it between entities. That meant we could create a financial statement format and duplicate it over and over and over as needed to generate reports.Clients also appreciate the clean aesthetic and reliable KPIs - our reporting, while customized, stands out from those firms dumping things right out of QuickBooks or building and re-building them in Excel.

Pros:

Syncs to QuickBooks instantly, updates regularly, and allows for unlimited groups to be created for the consolidation of financials between multiple companies. Also, most reports can be exported into Excel if you need to do a little finessing.

Cons:

The consolidated charts & graphs module is still in need of a few more granular features.
