Executive Summary

Axcell, a premier financial consulting firm based in Egypt, provides an array of robust, forward-thinking services, including on-demand CFO solutions. Our latest success story presents a prime example of the transformative power of our financial expertise. A well-established computer and software sector company found itself in a state of financial disarray, unable to accurately recognize profits, cash flow, or rely on financial reporting due to inadequate accounting infrastructure and leadership. Axcell stepped in to analyze, recalibrate, and provide guidance, leading to a tremendous turnaround in the company’s financial performance and operational resilience.


Client Challenge

The client, a distinguished player in the computer and software industry, had lost sight of its financial compass. They were grappling with an unreliable accounting system and unsatisfactory financial leadership, resulting in inaccurate profit reports, overestimated tax payments, and an unclear view of their financial position. The client’s financial health was suffering, and they urgently needed to establish a robust, efficient accounting framework.


The Axcell Approach

Our expert team quickly identified these significant issues and charted a comprehensive recovery course. The reported profits were scrutinized and adjusted, leading to a critical revelation: the company had been overestimating its profit for years, thus overpaying its taxes. Once we clarified the true profit margin, we took the next pivotal step by implementing one of the leading financial software, Oracle NetSuite, which substantially enhanced the client’s ability to capture accounting information timely and accurately.

To fortify the client’s financial leadership, we brought on board a financial controller, who was key in rebuilding the accounting and financial reporting structure from the ground up. This not only streamlined financial operations but also ensured monthly, reliable reporting, a radical improvement from their prior situation.


The Outcome

Axcell’s intervention reshaped the client’s financial landscape, leading to several significant improvements. First, the company was able to realize its accurate profits, which, although lower than initially reported, served as a wake-up call for the management. This realization triggered a renewed focus on acquiring new business and increasing revenue. As a result, the company saw an impressive increase in its profitability, achieving five times the previously reported profit within a year.

With a clear understanding of their financial performance and a robust financial framework in place, the client swiftly moved in the right direction. Their improved financial standing and operational capability attracted investors, fulfilling the entrepreneur’s objective of scaling up the business.



Axcell’s approach, combining our financial consulting acumen with our bespoke CFO services, unveiled the hidden potential of our client. We provided the company with the necessary financial leadership and infrastructure, realigned their understanding of their financial performance, and empowered them to achieve exponential growth. This case study underlines the importance of accurate financial reporting, strategic financial leadership, and the transformative potential of expert financial consultancy. It also reinforces Axcell’s commitment to ensuring its clients not only survive financial challenges but thrive and succeed beyond expectations.
