FIVE main reasons to consider Online Business Valuation


The ONLY valuation system to provide INSIGHT INTO the overall PERFORMANCE, health and value of your business

New Valuation Process

  • This new valuation process measures your overall ‘business performance’ based on a COMPARISON to what other businesses in your industry actually sold for (same industry, similar revenue and cash flow)

Blood Pressure Test

  • Online Business Valuation can be viewed as a “blood pressure test” for your business that measures business performance. If your business does not pass this test (comparing your business to your competition), it’s not as healthy as it should be and needs review

Gets Your Business in Shape

  • Only when you know what’s wrong, can you fix it. Online Business Valuation provides much more than just a numerical value, since it is the quickest first step to identifying and fixing problems that keep your business from being as successful as it should be

Ballpark Value

  • Online Business Valuation provides a solid ballpark value based on eight valuation methods using data from actual businesses that have already been sold in your industry
