THE 80/20 RULE
What’s in a name?
The Pareto Principle, also known as the 80/20 rule, the law of the vital few, or the principle of factor scarcity, states that for many events roughly 80% of the efforts come from 20% of the inputs.
These ratios ring true in the finance and accounting operations of companies as well. 20% of the members of any finance and accounting department can create 80% of the value and likely execute 80% of the work.
The obverse is also true. So, as an Executive or Business owner, you can’t afford to have average people in your company. We don’t.

Our team provides the capacity and ability to accelerate the completion of these projects and the realization of the financial benefits.See All the Ways We Can Help
