technical assistance

 

Since 1976, MACED has operated with the belief that to be effective small business lenders must couple capital investment with useful business assistance that makes a difference to borrowers. MACED focuses our attention on one-on-one technical and entrepreneurial development training and uses our loan products as tools to help ensure managed growth within a healthy business context.

 

MACED staff and qualified contractors form a network of support including accounting professionals, manufacturing process consultants, human resource benefits consultants and finance consultants. In addition, MACED staff offer a FastTrac New Venture class for new start-up businesses.

 

Our reliable partner contractors work with pre- and post-loan businesses on the following system improvements.

• QuickBooks and other accounting software installation and training

• Strategic planning services

• Business plan development

• Development of financial projections

• Plant production and process efficiencies

• Process improvements and layout

• Job costing, pricing and loading

• Inventory management system creation and training

• Technology improvements to increase production efficiencies and profitability

All initial assessments and some additional services are provided at no cost.
