Alex and Michelle Gage: Automating Your Big Picture Financial Reporting

Episode 617 of A Well-Designed Business®

Today with Alex and Michelle Gage:

Welcome to A Well-Designed Business! Today, I’m joined by Alex and Michelle Gage of Michelle Gage Interiors. When Alex saw Michelle struggling to get a clear picture of her financials, this engineer built a nice piece of software for her! Today, you’ll find out what this talented and numbers-driven interior designer was missing from her extensive Excel sheets and how it came in handy when Covid hit.

More About Alex and Michelle Gage:

Business Measurements grew alongside Michelle Gage Interiors as I watched Michelle evolve in the business to more complicated and detailed finances.  I saw her spend hours in Excel keeping tabs on the figures and knew there was a better way.  Computers are smarter than this.  I paid attention to her common inefficiencies and built Excel and internet tools to automatically do the work for her.  No more exporting data from your customer tracking software (Ivy/MyDoma) or Quickbooks.

 Once we had this baseline built there were SO many new insightful data views we had access to – projections, trends, open PO $, spend per vendor etc.  This was a little slice of big business intelligence catered to the growing interior designer.

Now Business Measurements is a subscription service with expert account setup that automatically gives the designer a day to day financial dashboard to fill the gaps between Ivy/MyDoma reporting and Quickbooks.
