Active members of the network since 2004, MGI Studio Pragma, based in the Italian coastal town of Fano, with a second office in the capital, Rome, recently shared with us exciting news that they have adopted a new financial planning software that is helping them to grow their consultancy practice and attract new business in Italy.
The firm is cooperating with ANDAF, a non-profit Italian association founded in 1968 between the heads of the Administration, Finance, Management Control, Planning and Internal Auditing functions of Italian companies, that aims to contribute to the training and professional growth of its members. ANDAF is part of the International Association of Financial Executives Institutes (IAFEI), a world federation that brings together over 25,000 members from 21 member countries.
Introducing ‘FIPLAN SUITE’
The software that MGI Studio Pragma has adopted and developed by 4Planning srl, is aimed at helping CFOs, financial controllers, treasury managers and cost controllers of SMEs from any business sector. Partner at the firm, Francesco Bartolucci, is our lead VAT expert and part of the Global VAT Specialist Group and he explained that the tool, ‘FIPLAN SUITE’ helps with financial planning, cash budgeting, costs control, budgeting and forecasting.
Strategic partnerships and the launch of a webinar programme
MGI Studio Pragma also got in touch with Associazione Italiana Tesorieri d' Impresa (AITI), an EACT member integrating CFOs, treasurers and finance professionals in Italy and, thanks to the partnerships, they were successful in launching a training initiative that featured five webinars focused on financial and treasury issues.
“We launched these webinars in order to promote our capabilities in the services that make us different in our market, exactly as we do with our MGI prefix.”
The webinars were a huge hit with prospective clients, with over 150 people connecting to the first two, and the next one is on Wednesday 21st at 5:00 CEST and is about the BUSINESS PLAN (the webinar will be held in Italian, here is the link to register: https://www.eventbrite.it/e/biglietti-il-business-plan-spunti-utili-per-redigerlo-in-modo-completo-142228674795). There is now a potential to extend the programme to other topics, including international ones.
Plans for the future
Determined to maximise opportunities further, MGI Studio Pragma has engaged a communications and marketing expert to assist with defining an ongoing strategy to follow up with the attendees and hopefully transform them into clients.
