Clients I'm Seeking:


Wide range from the SME looking to improve their profitability by proper planning and controlling of their business to large companies with turnover in excess of £5million looking to reduce costs by value optimisation of their purchasing or getting more for less by instigating a programme of lean optimisation be it a manufacturing or service process.

About My Business:


Improve SME company profits by identifying and fixing skill gaps. This is particularly true for areas that are typically covered within Project Management. This is all about Planning, Organising, Leading and Controlling. Looking at and writing business plans, helping them relocate, install equipment, risk, cost control and lean operation. So, I am looking for SME’s probably of 1-10 employees who need help to get them started or to improve their current position and as I may have spoken about we like to instil the concept of the exit strategy. We can operate in a number of ways, as trainers, as introducers/brokers or in mentoring or even as an interim manager. It really does depend upon the company needs and circumstances. For the larger company: Have you considered that cutting £250,000 in costs has the equivalent effect on your profit as increasing your sales by £5 million (assuming 5% net profit)? However, we believe it to be flawed logic to look purely at cost savings. The Dilemma Every organisation today is faced with this dilemma. How do you cut costs whilst maintaining quality and service levels? How do you get the best value from every penny you spend? We have developed a holistic approach working with you to get the right balance, developing solutions together and not expecting your company to fit into a standard package, clearly articulates why we do it, what we do, and how we achieve it backed up with case studies. It’s all about getting the best overall result for you. We recognise that organisations have different needs, so we don't try to sell generic solutions to specific problems. We never make assumptions about your priorities because that is dangerous and it could lead to wasted time and effort for us both. We need to get to know you and your business. This requires an approach that considers many variables; we call it “iCEO” intelligent cost and efficiency optimisation. The purpose is not to just slash costs, because service will suffer. The aim is to streamline processes to ensure the best possible outcome of lower costs combined with optimal efficiency. We do more than just cut costs; we help clients balance cost reduction whilst maintaining service levels and getting the best value for money. We deliver cost and efficiency optimisation through a framework called iCEO. This consists of a proven set of methodologies, expertise and knowledge transfer programmes supported by innovative software tools. iCEO defines a flexible yet structured approach based on many years experience. It is a proven model that has consistently delivered results and saved clients millions. If you look at you will see case studies showing annual savings ranging from £71,000 up to £1,300,000. If you want your organisation to become smarter and leaner, have a watertight strategic plan and move to a culture of continuous improvement and if you want to compete now AND in the future...EPI’s use of bespoke software tools developed in conjunction with Warwick University operating under the names of COE Planner, Process Optimiser and Value Optimiser gives us a distinct edge and sets us apart from our competitors. The standard pricing structure for Value Optimisation is based on the savings made so it works when there are either large savings or it does not take much time to analyse and apply the savings. Here I need an introduction to the senior decision maker, probably the Finance Director. Both options take a holistic and personalised view, there is never any attempt to impose a pre-set answer as all companies are different, one size fits nobody.
