Home What we do Improve Your Business

Small and mid-sized companies today are challenged in many fronts:

 

They face the same external pressures that large companies face:

  • a highly competitive environment where customers are demanding both quality, and low price.
  • increasing costs of products from their suppliers.
  • increased costs of transportation
  • increasing costs from expanding governmental regulations and requirements
  • a challenging financial market that makes access to loans for working capital a challenge and a constraint for day-to-day operations, never  mind what's required for growth

 

In addition to these external factors that are, for the most part, out of your control, you're also challenged with the day-to-day operations of the Company.   In short to meet these internal operating goals:

  • Produce enough cash flow to meet payroll, and cover all other operating expenses.
  • Reduce the costs of producing and delivering your goods and services to the market in order to win customers, and maintain the required profit margins.
  • Attract and retain a highly engaged, motivated and productive workforce.

executives at these companies realize that they not only need to be aware of these rapid changes in the market (which they can't control), but that they must position themselves by ensuring that their business models, the internal operations they can control, are optimized to ensure that their company is able to thrive in this new business world. It's about growth, but is also a matter of survival.

 

 

Unfortunately many small and mid-sized companies who realize that tackling these issues is a key priority, are ill-equipped and don’t know exactly where to begin.    If this sounds like you, click here to learn how we can partner with you to help you thrive!

What makes us different from others? Our senior staff consists of a seasoned group of SVP and C-level senior executives who have held line positions in many Fortune 500 companies as well as small to mid-size businesses.   

We have worked both as consultants and with consultants for many years.   Our recommendations, tools, and techniques are geared towards specific actions that bring results  to the bottom line quickly!

We are a certified IBM Business Partner in our BPM practice.   In this capacity we are able to bring many of IBM's resources to the table on an as needed basis to work with our own lean six-sigma trained team to focus on your specific business requirements.   These resources include software tools, techniques, and key industry expertise in specific areas as needed.   The combination of our skills and proprietary techniques in tandem with IBM capabilities often make us a more valuable resource to many of our clients than other more traditional consulting firms they hire.

Holding key executive line positions, our seasoned consultants have "walked the walk", and understand the challenges organizations like yours face in their internal processes because we have been personally accountable for those items themselves.
