We are often called in by the GM or director of a
business to help define and/or refine new business
offerings and turn them into realizable activities.
We will often take risks with our customers - tying our
financial success to theirs. This is particularly
important when we are providing strategic advice about
what represents a marketable item - our customers know
that we believe what we say because we take a stake in
Sometimes projects fail because the vision is not clear
or because the leadership cannot gather the appropriate
information and disseminate it. We work with our
clients to develop products but also to make sure
communication is working both up and down in the
Board of Directors
We have taken a seat on the board of
directors of some of our clients because of the quality
and diversity of the assistance we provide.
Aside from providing advice, we will also implement the
strategies we propose. This is especially important
when a customer has tried and failed on his own in a
particular area and needs something done quickly.
Some of our technical expertise lies in:
Mathematical Modeling (hold a patent in simulated
Business Modeling (cost of operations analysis, ROI
tools, process modeling)
Compilers / language translators (makers of VB to
C++ translator among other translators)
Application Conversions (automatic and manual
Software Localization (developed methodology for
D&B for translation into 19 languages)
Performance Tuning (for several clients this has
been algorithmic changes that resulted in orders of
Web sites (many such clients)
Expert Systems (developed a high-end customer
requirements/vendor capability mapping system)
We have helped companies from the size of Avaya, D&B
and PaineWebber to companies of smaller size bring their
products to market and manage their businesses.
Our business model is a unique offering and the process
necessarily begins by interviewing line-of-business
managers to identify their priorities and pain-points.
The first meeting will result in an assessment that
almost always leads interesting insights into areas for
improvement and /or new business possibilities.
