  • Strategic planning consultation to help clarify issues facing your company and help you define mid- and long-term solutions that will maximize opportunities and increase shareholder value. Now more than ever, distributors must establish "go-to-market" strategies. Fee for service, superior customer service or private labeling are among the strategies that can dramatically shift the allocation of resources and communication to the marketplace.
  • Financial revitalization services that work with your creditors, employees, suppliers and customers to let your company operate without excessive debt, and continue to serve customers and retain employees.
  • Business process improvement services pinpoint and eliminate outdated processes and controls that require too many people or too much time.
  • Value stream mapping allows management to visualize business processes and calculate non-traditional measurements, such as dock-to-dock cycle time, fill rates and order pick accuracy, in order to focus on improving processes and methods. As a result, companies typically become more efficient partners with suppliers, and increase customer satisfaction while lowering both inventory levels and internal soft dollar costs.
  • Lean accounting services help companies that have made the lean transformation look at costs, profitability and other key metrics with a method that is totally different from traditional accounting and financial reporting.
  • Best practice benchmarking allows you to compare your company's historical results against a wide range of similar-sized companies in your industry that are using the same controls and processes. The goal is to discover potential areas of financial and operational opportunity. Traditional measures like on-time delivery and fill rates are beginning to be supported by perfect order index (POI), honeycomb percentage and the percent of warehouse capacity used. Collecting this information, and understanding why these measures apply to your company allows management to see problems prior to their impact on your profit and loss.
