Short comments from practising accountants using FBM's Practician software, now made 'business specific' in TARI for Business™ Software:
"A client designs and builds hi-tech computerised lighting control systems. An analysis of invoices using TARI™ demonstrated that, based on the expected hours (standard hours per the bills of materials) for the production of items sold, the factory staff were only 40% utilised. Further investigation showed that this was largely because the standard hours for each operation much lower than what was being spent. The owner was relieved to know that his staff weren't slacking, but was obviously concerned that costs of production had been understated for some time as a result of the factory staff time been understated.
"He is currently working through each of the manufacturing processes to establish how long they really take and adjusting the standards accordingly. In the course of this he has already found ways of significantly reducing the time for some processes - to below the already low original standards. He probably would not have been motivated to go into the processes with such vigour or at all if he had not been alerted by the TARI™ process.
"He is also looking at the margins on various products based
on existing selling prices and the more accurately established costs
to decide which selling prices he can try to increase. He may
also find products that he should consider discontinuing. Once
again, he probably would not have reviewed his selling prices for quite
some time if he had not been alerted by the the TARI™ process."

"Be prepared to expand - Since starting with Practician our work directly
with our clients has vastly our knowledge of our clients affairs and enabled
us to really get involved. This has meant greater satisfaction for us and
our clients, and let's not forget that the increased average fees means
greater profitability in the practice"
Trevor Crisp of Crisp Lynch & Fagg (Consulting), Brisbane.
"Practician has the ability to assist clients in assessing and
monitoring their profit potential and staff productivity. It's the most
important software tool we have acquired."
Peter Nicholson of Wilfrid Docker & Docker, Brookvale 2100.
"Practician has allowed us to give to clients instantly what we do
not have time to do manually: analysis of trading results; planning for
the coming year; the ability to monitor this plan.... Result: happy clients,
better self motivation and increased fee base."
