Several entrepreneurs lose valuable time focusing on accounting, financial planning, and compliance, instead of focusing on growth, business development, and strategy. With a team of Virtual CFOs, Chennai based Kay- One Consulting comes to the rescue. The company specializes in Virtual CFO services, equity valuations, business plans, and due diligence. Kay-One Consulting helps clients on key strategic issues, leveraging its deep industry expertise. “Our team of experts have grown and nurtured several startups and small businesses. Using our strategic inputs, and analytical rigor, our clients are able to make informed decisions more quickly, and solve their toughest and most critical business problems,” says Kishore Dasaka, Director.

There are several businesses that usually don’t seek a full-time CFO. They primarily look at a specific range of expertise to solve a key pain point. This could be anything between choosing the right
accounting software, establishing a process, developing internal controls, and creating specific management dashboards. KayOne provides end-to-end Virtual CFO services, unlike other providers who merely provide book-keeping, and compliance. This includes investor liaison, management reporting, establishing internal controls, devising financial strategies, working capital management, fundraising support, and monthly board reviews.

The Silver Lining
KayOne Consulting follows a process- oriented bottom-up approach right from the design of chart of Accounts, to management and investor reporting. While several others players in the space still rely on software like Tally which requires significant human intervention, and is tied to a client-server model, team KayOne meticulously uses cloud software where several management reports are automated, without human interference. “We bring unmatched functional domain expertise matched with pragmatic innovation, adopting cloud-based technologies for seamless management and statutory reporting,” informs Kishore.

What’s more is that all of the client-facing consultants have at least one professional qualification and hands-on industry experience that gives them an edge over others. “Time and again clients feel that their business is too unorganized, unsystematic, and people-
dependent. We fix these issues by implementing strong polices, and processes backed by today’s scalable technologies which help address these gaps,” he says.

Today, KayOne boasts of clients from 23 + countries spread across six continents. The team advises and supports clients ranging from innovative startups to global companies that are leaders in their space. The company also has recorded 100 percent growth in revenues over the last two years.
