  • Do you know what changes are required to improve your funeral home’s profitability?
  • Do you have a plan for making those changes?
  • Are you overwhelmed by the thought of developing an effective plan?

Gaining a better understanding of your funeral home’s profit and loss is a daunting task for most funeral professionals. Without this understanding, you’re unlikely to increase your profitability. The Foresight Companies will share how they analyzed a funeral home’s books, prices, product mix, and other key benchmarks to identify changes needed to improve financial performance.  Learn where to start, which data points you’ll need and how much time you’ll need to invest to hit your profit goals and ensure the health and well-being of your business for years to come.

This is where you shine, yet you cannot continue to do your job if the money to keep your doors open isn’t in your bank account. Remember--it’s not how much you earn, it’s how much you make. Gross revenue does not always equal adequate profit margins.
    We know how hard you work for every dollar you earn. We’ve heard your stories of shrinking profits and trying to compete against the deep discounters. We know your challenges are real.
    OGR’s new Strategic Business Analysis options provide the expertise, insights and guidance you need to identify problem-areas and form a plan to improve them. OGR partnered with expert consultants at The Foresight Companies to perform an analysis similar to an annual check-up with your doctor, only for your funeral home. Foresight’s in-depth work will reveal strengths and weaknesses of your funeral home’s financial health. Based on their findings and diagnosis, they will recommend action steps and guidance to increase revenue, decrease expenses, improve cash flow and increase net worth.

How to Get Started

Getting started requires only a little effort from you. You’ll start by sending the most recent four years of your consolidated financial statements and four years of call information.  The Best option will require some additional data including your GPL and employee census.
