ABOUT US

KEY SERVICES

COST REDUCTION

We work with you to identify all the key costs in your business and develop ongoing strategies to reduce and control those costs.

ISO IMPLEMENTATION

We can help in developing a new ISO system or maintaining an existing one. We currently support ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT

Business Improvement projects will usually benefit from the input of a third party. An outside objective view on any business process, unconstrained by convention, can help achieve positive change.

COST REDUCTION

OUR KEY SERVICE

For good reason a business is very driven to improve sales performance and broadly speaking, improved sales lead to an improved bottom line. Cost reduction on the other hand (provided corners are not being cut) has a more direct effect where a thousand pounds saved usually equates to a thousand pounds straight on the bottom line. A serious look at your costs periodically therefore can have a significant effect on your Company's performance.

This is what we do

1

PROCUREMENT

This is the key area we concentrate on. We firstly analyse your spending on materials and services connected with your business and then devise strategies to reduce these key costs.

2

HUMAN RESOURCES

We are not HR specialists but will help you to focus on your HR costs in the context of your business costings. A key performance indicator for any buisness is the turnover/profit per employee.

3

IT/TELECOMS

We have a lot of experience of procurement of IT and Telecoms and have the technical skills to be able to talk to suppliers of these services in their language.

4

LOGISTICS

Logistical costs are obviously more significant in some businesses than others but are often overlooked. This is an area where shopping around and driving hard bargains can really pay off.

5

SALES & MARKETING

We are not marketing specialists but in the context of your business costings we can help you identify your return on investment in this area.

6

WORK IN PROGRESS

Any materials or part finished goods on your premises are tying up money. We can help you keep a tight control on this aspect of your business.

WE ALSO OFFER

OTHER SERVICES

RESEARCH

Whether it be anonymised data or 3rd party honesty you are seeking, we can conduct research on your behalf. This typically will be with employees, suppliers or clients. We can help with the preparation and delivery of questionnaires and provide the data in a variety of report formats for analysis.

PROCESS

We can help with a number of aspects of your business process flows. Through the use of process analysis software, video and observation we can break down and analyse your business processes. We can help with producing costings and quality procedures associated with a business process. An objective outside view can often help overcome change resistance which can come with convention.

TRAINING

Coming from a graphics industry background we are capable of producing professional training materials, be they in the form of manuals or video based. We favour graphical representation (usually flowcharts) for process controls and standard operating procedures. We offer training to your staff in order for you to be able to produce these resources yourself.

BUSINESS INFO

If you have a need, we can offer personal training in the use of analytical tools such as excel, Crystal Reports or Microsoft Power BI to create a useful suite of business information reports. We will help you to get at your live business information and Key Performance Indicators.

CONFIDENTIALITY

OUR ETHOS

Certain aspects of our work by their very nature require the utmost confidentiality. For example working with accounts data. We do not however make any distinction between obviously confidential aspects and any others in our dealings with your company. We treat all our interactions whether verbal, written or in the form of data as absolutely confidential and therefore will never be shared, leaked or in any other way divulged to any third party. We are also aware that there needs to be confidentiality within your own organisation and will only ever discuss aspects of our work within your workforce where it has been clearly identified and agreed as part of the process.

Data security is critical to us and we will never take any data off your premises. If we are working with your data on our own laptops, we will only ever store it on USB memory sticks and these will remain on your premises.
