Business owners come to us to increase the value of the dollars they spend every day by at least 35 to 40%.
The focus is on the organization’s people, the information or data and the supporting infrastructure. Imagine a 3 legged stool that’s the strongest when the weight is distributed evenly. If one leg is weakened or removed, the remaining 2 legs must support the organization. Usually the pressure falls on either the people or the information. How do either of these areas respond? Quickly and without hesitation, or with delays and errors. Once a business owner begins doubting the integrity of the data, then the people supplying the data are also in question or doubt.
Business owners that come to us feel they’re treading on uncertain waters. They may be OK, but have fear that keeps them from taking risks. Fear they don’t have good information or a greater fear they will not be able to recover quickly after making a decision. What this looks like for most business owners is the fact that the most critical element of their business, Information, seems to be either held hostage, lacking integrity or worse the business owner may feel a lack of control over how it is captured or used.
This typically shows up in three situations:
- Delays in obtaining their information due to manual processes.
- Duplicate effort due to a lack of communication between applications.
- Lack of reporting on the information stored in their database solutions.
By not addressing these areas, it’s been our experience that upwards of 40% are lost opportunities for profitability. And, typically affects the bottom-line anywhere from $20k to $120k. Our clients see the increase in productivity and efficiencies within the first 90 days, along with a decrease in overall operating expenses.
