Integrated Growth Advisors helps business owners to understand the overall health of your business, including what business intangibles are getting in the way of your success. Our first step in this process is focused on our existing partnership with CoreValue® Software, which allows IGA to deliver a proven assessment process backed by thousands of companies around the globe.
By implementing a CoreValue® assessment, our team is able to develop a path to improve your historical timeline of business success effortlessly so that you can concentrate on what matters.
What is CoreValue®?
CoreValue® is a complete software-based business evaluation tool that helps business owners and CEOs quantify the unrealized value in their company. Based on academic research at MIT, Williams, Harvard, and over 30 years of in-market experience, CoreValue® looks beyond the balance sheet and financial statements to turn business ‘intangibles’ into dollar value.
How Does CoreValue® Measure Value?
Think about your business as an engine. The business engine generates outputs: revenue and profit. Unlike financial model-based valuations which measure just the outputs, CoreValue® measures the strength, durability, and efficiency of the “gears” in the engine (such as relationships with customers, brand, employee loyalty, ingenuity, etc). The stronger the business engine, the more dependably it can generate revenue and profit into the future at or above its current rate, (even without the current business owner in charge) the more valuable the business.
CoreValue® is based on a framework of 18 value drivers, including Dominant Market Share, Large Potential Market, Brand, Growth, Recurring Revenue, Legal, Human Resources, Senior Management, Operations, Finance, Innovation, Customer Satisfaction, and more. These are the “gears” in a company’s business engine that make the business function and give it value. When combined with industry data and financial performance, CoreValue® can quantify the dollar value of these “gears”, identify weaknesses, and suggest tasks to improve the value of a company.
CoreValue® is dynamic. Clients can improve their businesses, periodically updating their CoreValue® and track progress over time. The benefit to clients is that they can gain control of their businesses and take their businesses where they want to go.
The IGA CoreValue® Edge
As a firm we continually evaluate the discipline of “Business Assessment”, given the pivotal role that this unique practice area has within our overall offerings.
As a result of our deep knowledge and experience in this space, we made a determination that CoreValue® truly is the best option – the software continues to advance, the team behind it is first rate, and most importantly, the overall outputs are fantastic. Of course, once we as a firm made a determination with regard to our choice, it was critical that we were able to take the next step and to make sure that CoreValue® believed in IGA as much as we believe in their company, and towards that end we are very proud to say that IGA is fully licensed and trained in the use of CoreValue® Software.
CoreValue® Training and Strategic Growth Services
In addition to being licensed to implement CoreValue® Assessments for our clients, as a result of our own experiences with the software, IGA now also offers CoreValue® Software Training and Strategic Growth Services geared towards service businesses interested in providing CoreValue® Software assessments for their clients. This process involves training your personnel on the use of CoreValue® Software to differentiate a professional services firm in its market as well as provide a direct path to a software license.
