Measuring & Analysing Financial KPIs From Business Perspect


Financial KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) are measurable values that indicate how well a business is performing pertaining to generating revenue, profits and values. Monitoring KPIs shows whether a business is on its way achieving its short-term and long-term business goals.

Key Performance Indicators a.k.a KPIs, help determine the condition and sustainability of the current business model of an organisation.

Carrying out regular review of KPIs will help the firm to:

  • Identify strengths and weakness of business organisations
  • Spot potential problems before they turn serious
  • Determine which aspects of the business are underperforming

All KPIs have a common goal: keeping the business well-tuned and ready for financial success.
