Trillium Stitches Together Financial Plan for Fabric Company

The Company
Big Duck Canvas (“BDC”), founded by Shawn Mitchell, provides high quality fabrics, canvas and threads to both wholesale and retail stores. Their services include customer cut-and-sew fabrics and fabric printing, which adds a customer’s design features to a fabric. BDC distributes its products throughout North America and can be found online at

In 2018 the BDC team wanted to enhance their financial management and reporting. They were looking to create a platform to communicate the company’s key performance indicators (“KPIs”) that drive its financial results and gain a better understanding of their numbers. The BDC team wanted a financial “road map” that could guide them as they made financial decisions regarding strategies for growth.

Solution: Trillium’s Numbers Coaching
Trillium Financial’s (“TFI”) Numbers Coaching was an ideal fit for BDC’s needs. TFI developed a financial scorecard focusing financial drivers that gave the team visibility into the profits and cash flow critical to sustained profitable growth. The scorecard offers an “at a glance” view of results. TFI also developed a financial model using its Numbers NavigatorTM proprietary software that provided the road map for the BDC team to see where they were headed with profits and cash flow. The Numbers NavigatorTM provides a rolling forecast allowing the BDC team to make financial and operational decisions towards the achievement of their goals.

TFI pulled together financial and non-financial data to complete a customized scorecard and a financial model. TFI met with the BDC team regularly to review results and provide numbers coaching around the financial results. From the monthly meetings, the BDC team could take actions on activities to improve the company’s bottom line results and implement best practices.
