Streamlined bookkeeping

Zenkeep integrates Fathom into their business routine and client meetings as a time effective, discussion tool. Fathom assists in streamlining the bookkeeping process by producing a visual representation of the key insights in client's financial data.

“We are able to produce key insights for business owners in a way they have never had access to before.”

"By using Fathom the process is quick and easy, clients have never been happier, they no longer spend hours creating or explaining data," says Willson. Fathom simplifies the process while remaining engaging, insightful, and meaningful.

Understanding financials

"Our favorite tools are the ‘Breakeven Analysis’ and the ‘Trend Tool’."

The ‘trend analysis’ helps to track business performance and trends of financial and non-financial KPIs and metrics. Whereas, the ‘profitability analysis’ evaluates a company’s ability to generate profits, as well as the ability to visualize a company’s break-even point and margin of safety.

“Using these tools, I am able to discuss with our clients the difference between their fixed and variable costs and explain how much it takes to make $1 of sales” Willson stated.
