Can you squeeze more value

from your available cash?


A reminder for a free one hour interactive Teleforum on

Tuesday, May 10 at 11 am (Eastern)


Early and mid-staged technology firms, by their nature, are cash constrained.  They struggle with: growth; long sales cycles; uneven trajectory around product development; infrastructure costs; marketing programs and personnel issues...among others.
We'll discuss issues such as:
  • Understanding the true cost of delivering your service or product
  • Where are the big savings opportunities in your operations
  • What are the costs and implications of using outsourced services
  • How can you optimize your operations and profitability around the SaaS model
  • Ways of keeping professional services in check.
  • How to explore reallocating expenses to focus on areas of higher growth?
  • Are you managing DSO properly - are their other financial optimizations you can use to save cash?


In this one hour free interactive Teleforum  we'll answer these questions, respond to your specific issues, and come up with clear and concise ways to squeeze the most value out of every dollar you have available.
