Getting "The Advantage"
One of our clients had a vision and a strategy they wanted to implement. The Advantage Consulting Group utilized several components from their business process and organization tool sets.
"Before hiring The Advantage Consulting Group, our company did not have any tools with which to measure the utilization of our engineering and technical staff nor where they spent their time. We managed on gut feel and although that was fine when we were a privately held company, it was not fine for the new profit driven, publicly traded international company we had been merged into. Therefore, it became necessary to put tools in place that would allow us to apply science to managing our staff.
We reaped the benefits of The Advantage Consulting Group's work on the project they named S.A.M. (System for Activity Management). It was clear, as we all worked with ACG, they not only understood how to create the tools, but also what specific tools were necessary. It was very easy to get what we needed from them as they usually anticipated what we needed. They clearly demonstrated a thorough understanding of a services business and applied that understanding to the creation of S.A.M.
We realized a net annual savings of $1.4 million dollars, which equated to approximately a five to one return on our investment. They well prepared us for the nation-wide roll out of a new ERP system to execute these functions. I would absolutely use ACG in the future should the need arise for such services again."
