”Those who don’t invest in knowlegde, will face the costs of ignorance”

– Emil Tonk

Real business development solutions for businesses that want to know how to get better business results.

When should you contact a trusted controller?

When your company is not profitable enough.

When the volume of production and/or the number of employees is increasing, but the company's profits do not reflect this.

When you don’t have an experienced controller.

When you know that in other companies an employed controller is helping the manager to make effective decisions, but you feel you cannot afford it.

When you feel you cannot see clearly.

When you feel you have no real insight into how your company is operating and you want to know where efficiencies could be improved.

Professionals

You may have experienced that, although you can find statutory accounting and tax experts in Hungary fairly quickly, you possibly run into difficulties trying to find good professionals in the field of Controlling / FP&A.

Furthermore, you may find it particularly hard to find a well seasoned expert to an industrial / production profile. Understanding standard costing, creating/updating those, comparing to actuals and come to a clear conclusion with variance analysis etc., is not what you’ll find many professionals being an expert of.

It’s not you having bad luck whatsoever – and you’re by far not alone with such experiences. Reason is, good professionals are mostly employed by big multinationals in Hungary, paid nicely (not much less than in the West) and therefore those professionals are not on the labor market.

While the supply remaining low, the demand for highly skilled Controllers is steadily increasing – hence some find such searches occasionally kind of hopeless.

However it’s not.

Q&A

They interpret the data that directly and indirectly affect the success of the business, revealing relationships that are not clear to a manager, thus providing background support for making important strategic decisions. A controller makes a comprehensive interpretation of the data produced by an accountant, which is examined in conjunction with other important information (e.g. headcount, sales volumes, etc.). Armed with this knowledge, they can provide the support that will enable the business to achieve greater business results.

An accountant keeps track of the past: books the accounts and makes sure the company complies with external rules, while a controller deals with the internal workings of the business and focuses on the objectives of the management. They are primarily concerned with the future of the company: they make financial forecasts and regularly checks on the company. They warn you if your company is not on track and help you find the right management direction.

Our company has extensive experience in international controlling projects. We have worked with numerous multinational corporations across various industries, successfully assisting them in establishing and optimizing efficient controlling processes.

Through our approach based on comprehensive analysis and strategic planning, our company effectively helps clients reduce costs and increase efficiency in international operations. Through optimized processes and more efficient resource allocation, our clients gain a competitive advantage in the global market.

We offer comprehensive support in financial planning, cost analysis, development of cost reduction strategies, as well as defining and monitoring Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Moreover, we’re specialist in industrial production costing (standard costing) and variance analysis.

Digital technologies such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, and automation are pivotal in controlling. They enable faster and more accurate analyses and facilitate the efficient tracking and forecasting of financial processes.

Yes. Control1 has the expertise not only to build something up from scratch but also to maintain that with ongoing support. Some cases our experts are selected by the clients and requested to stay as a permanent with them. This is far more efficient selection of a professional than any other way.
