Navigating Success: Palm Beach Electronics’ Journey to Financial Excellence with VITAL

January 8, 2024

Meet Palm Beach Electronics:

Located along Florida’s Atlantic coast, Palm Beach Electronics (PBE) stands as a leading custom integration firm. Guided by the visionary leadership of Zak Deily, PBE embraces the ethos of ‘Done right the first time! Every time,’ ensuring a commitment to excellence and top-tier service.

 

Challenges:

For over 13 years, with a dedicated team of 35 professionals, PBE has enriched lives with cutting-edge technologies. Despite their success, a challenge loomed—keeping pace with their rapid growth while upholding the quality of their work.

  • Fast Growth:

    With PBE experiencing rapid growth, there was a need for a streamlined and simple approach to ensure the financial aspect of the business kept pace with its expansion.

  • Financial Strategy:

    To navigate uncharted territories and sustain their growth, PBE sought a more concrete and structured financial strategy.

  • Delegation:

    To focus on team development and company growth, Zak sought a solution to delegate financial responsibilities.

 

Choosing VITAL, A Strategic Alliance:

Enter VITAL, armed with a unique playbook—the VITAL Method. This collaboration wasn’t just a partnership; it marked the next chapter in PBE’s journey—a transformative story waiting to be written.

  • Comprehensive Financial Insight:

    The VITAL Success Team gathered and examined all financial data, organizational systems, and business plans, establishing a baseline understanding of PBE’s current financial state. This analysis provided the comprehensive financial insight needed to address their goals and challenges.

  • Streamlined Financial Optimization:

    Continuous review and fine-tuning of the financial plan became integral to adapting to the rapid growth phase.

  • Support & Accountability:

    The addition of accountability added another layer to Zak’s ability to exceed goals. Goal setting facilitated the delegation of financial tasks to the team, and VITAL’s QuickBooks Process Manager provided experienced support to the PBE team.

  • Monthly Planning:

    Fractional CFO monthly meetings have become instrumental in shaping the company’s financial strategy. Access to an easy-to-read dashboard allows PBE to monitor key performance metrics effortlessly.

Wins:

Palm Beach Electronics doesn’t just fly—they soar!

  • Financial Clarity:

    PBE achieved ultimate clarity on the monthly numbers that matter, including Gross Margin, Compensation, and Major Operating Costs.

  • Granular Improvements:

    Every 0.5% or 1% financial improvement became crucial to the bottom line, enabling investments back into growth and the team. Reviewing the right metrics each month simplified the process of finding granular improvements.

  • Cash Flow:

    A newfound focus on cash flow became paramount to maintaining financial health during rapid revenue growth.

In our industry, where you’ve got plenty of technicians and sales people, the financial side tends to take a backseat. Bringing VITAL into the picture was a crucial move for me. Their tools aren’t just helpful; they’re necessary for anyone looking to refine their business and truly understand its potential.
