Our industry expertise includes media/advertising, publishing, music & entertainment, Blockchain, Initial Coin Offering/Crypto-Currency, manufacturing, construction, transportation (air, rail & ground), retail (CPG) and real estate. The reality is that the fundamentals and operational effectiveness of the areas below (“building blocks”) are centric to any industry. These “building blocks”, coupled with our industry experience, has resulted in more creative and efficient strategies for our clients. Our client base includes “Private Equity owned” entities, as well as, “stand alone” corporate entities.
BUSINESS PROCESS ASSESSMENT, REDESIGN & OPTIMIZATION
Focusing on the accounting and operational processes and procedures, we will perform “current state” review and documentation, GAP Analysis/Deficiency determination and “Future State” design and deployment. The objective centric to our work is “Total Business Process Optimization” (TBPO), Business Unit integration(s) and “Critical Path” training and accounting department restructuring, where and when necessary. We also have a strong Human Resources practice assisting organizations in a manner similar to the above in establishing or improving their HR environment/compliance. Finally, our work here also includes the creation and deployment of Shared Services Operations throughout the world.
SYSTEMS ASSESSMENT, INTEGRATION, MIGRATION & OPTIMIZATION
We leverage our expertise in our Business Policy, Procedure Re-Engineering & Optimization (see above) and establish a sound foundation from which to “launch” a migration by thoroughly optimizing the current state landscape before attempting ANY migration. Depending on the client resources and stakeholders involved, we can bring a team that includes Project Management, Project team members (with architectural, development and functional level expertise) and “super-user” support resources (necessary to provide post-implementation “side by side” assistance and guidance to company personnel using the new system). Our system(s) expertise in this area includes Oracle, SAP, MS Dynamics, Yardi, Netsuite, Lawson, KRONOS, Workday and others. We have also worked to “reverse migrate” or “re-implement” projects that were “sub-standard” or “failed implementations”.
