Attaché Software finds success in unlocking trapped turnover


Founded in 1981, Attaché creates intelligent business systems and software for businesses with annual sales of $1 million to $50 million. A market leader in business-improvement, Attaché employs over 200 staff and over 60,000 people worldwide rely on Attaché systems to help run their businesses.

The Attaché Scorecard is a freely available cloud-based software that has been recognised as an ABA100 Winner for Best Cloud Product in The Australian Business Awards 2014. Set on improving existing resources, the Scorecard software helps aspiring businesses grow into medium-sized organisations by helping companies proactively review their processes and unlock the 12% or more of turnover that is typically trapped inside inefficient business systems. By entering six key financial numbers, the Attaché Scorecard calculates business health indicators and potential cash-flow improvements.

Identifying a gap in the market for software that not only suggests improvements but also provides clear steps on how to make them, the Attaché Scorecard includes a list of over 250 proven tactics in the areas of sales, debtors, stock, expense and payroll. Within minutes, a business owner can download the App, get a business health check in language they understand and improve efficiency and sustainability. “We wanted to give something back to society as an educational aid on business improvement for SMEs and their advisors,” said Attaché Scorecard co-designer Mike Rich. “Our goal is to help release $500 million into the Australian economy over the next three years.”
