Improve Business ProfitabilityImprove Profitability and Cash Flow in your Business

FDSL has since 1986 been helping company owners improve and transform the performance and profitability of their businesses by the achievement of Smarter, Faster and More Cost Effective ways of running those businesses.

Size is not important!

The current size of the company is not important – we have worked with companies with turnover from zero to £300m and beyond.
We work with clients and businesses where there is a genuine need or desire to improve profit, cash flow and performance.
This can be with a company owner wanting to increase profitability with a view to selling the business and maximise the return.
However we have also worked with start up, distressed and stalled businesses which have gone on achieve profitability far beyond anything envisaged or achieved historically.
We will only work with clients where we believe we can make an appreciable impact on profitability and cash flow, and we are able to drive improvements with tailored help and support for the individual needs of the business, and its particular stage of development.
