  • Improving processes to create efficiencies
  • Managing risk
  • Establishing internal controls
  • Compliance with Federal, State, and Local regulations
  • HR and employee benefits

The business assessment reviews the five most critical metrics for success:  liquidity, profits & profit margin, sales, borrowing, and assets.

As part of our service, UMMC works closely with you and provides strategic solutions that will improve your business’s performance.

Industry Analysis

Comparing your company’s performance to that of other companies in your industry can help you to identify areas of your business that need attention.  If your competition is experiencing healthy growth and increased sales and your company is not–UMMC can provide the insight you need.  We provide a report using your company’s financial data to compare performance to your industry peers.

This engagement can be done independently of other services provided by UMMC but when it is done in conjunction with the Business Assessment–we can provide valuable insight into areas of your business that need improvement so your business can thrive.
