The success of a franchisor depends entirely on the success of its franchisees. Understanding "unit economics" — i.e. the economics of the individual franchisee — is critical to understanding how well the system is doing, identifying problems, and highlighting opportunities and best practices. This is the critical problem that we solve: understanding the profitability and cash flow of the franchisees.
Many franchise systems have Point Of Sale (POS) systems in place, or operations software that collects critical information such as sales, customer counts, leads, appointments, and other data. A few of the industry leaders have systems in place that present this information in the form of dashboards, available over the internet so that franchisees can compare themselves to their peers. The ones that do report that the franchisees love this information, and check it every day — and let them know if it hasn't been updated.
Some franchise systems have requirements that franchisees submit financial statements on a regular basis — and of these, some require it annually, some quarterly, and some monthly. This data tends to be faxed rather than submitted in electronic format. The financial statements do not necessarily have the same line items, or come from the same accounting systems. And they tend to be filed away rather than actively analyzed. They can be used as fodder for the occasional special study when the need arises, and the budget permits — which is rare.
Using SurvivalWare as the platform, we offer customized solutions tailored to each franchise network's unique business model. We solve the problem of how to efficiently get the financial data into a common format.
SurvivalWare Pro provides the back-end analysis tools to:
You don't have to stop there: at very little additional cost, a customized cash flow projection model can be added on to the historical analysis piece. With our new Forecast Template feature, your analysts become super productive at preparing budgets and forecasts — or we can help you teach the franchisees how to do it themselves.
For less than the cost of a benchmark study — which usually represents a year at a time, may include only a subset of data, and is outdated as soon as you get it — you can have your own SurvivalWare model developed and ready for use in-house, or to be rolled out to the network.

Here are a couple of savvy Franchisors who understand the importance of helping their franchisees achieve financial success.
If you've been in business for any length of time, you know the importance of cash flow and how difficult it is to plan and manage. You know how nice it would be to have a fat bank account to cushion the impact of the occasional cash flow flare-up. But face it – capital is not easy to come by. Better analysis and planning can help you get the most out of the precious capital you have accumulated in your business. It can give you an edge when you are trying to attract additional capital or apply for a loan. And detailed analysis and planning is the only way to dig yourself out of a full fledged cash crunch – whatever the cause. Face it, capital is toughest to raise when you need it the most.
Banker n. – 1. someone who lends you an umbrella when the sun is shining, but demands it back at the first hint of rain. 2. someone who lends you money if you can prove beyond a shadow of doubt that you don't need it.
SurvivalWare — the software — is all about helping you plan ahead so you can attract additional growth capital or get by with less. So you can survive a cash crisis, and live to fight another day. To help you grow with confidence. Or simply to sleep better at night — knowing that you have things under control.
Luhring SurvivalWare — the company — is all about helping you succeed as an entrepreneur. To deepen your understanding of accounting and finance. To help you create cash flow projections so you can look forward and make wise decisions. To enable you to thumb your nose at the naysayers who are clueless about what it takes to start a company or meet a payroll.

If you're in the finance or accounting profession, you've experienced both the joy and the tyranny of spreadsheets. The joy of course is the incredible flexibility, the ability to calculate things the way you want, the ability to format things to the nth degree. The ability to start with a blank sheet.
The tyranny comes in many forms: the obscure cell formulas, trying to figure out someone else's spreadsheet (or your own from several months back), the labor involved in keeping the spreadsheet up to date. Also, being forced to start with a blank sheet.
SurvivalWare can cause your productivity to soar while at the same time improving the quality of your work product, and setting you apart from the field with attractive graphs and dashboards as part of your standard deliverables.
You can start with our pre-built financial model that takes care of the tough calculations and knows the difference between history and projections. Add to that any special inputs and Key Performance Indicator (KPI) calculations for a specific client, and you've got an unbeatable combination.
You can also use SurvivalWare to consolidate multiple companies, or analyze the performance of dozens or hundreds of locations, such as in a franchise network.
Philip Campbell — accounting and financial consultant, CPA, and author of the book Never Run Out of Cash — insists that a business owner cannot intelligently run a business without doing cash flow projections on a regular basis. His software tool of choice: SurvivalWare.
