Experts in Smart Profit GrowthSM
We are true profit experts and help our clients to sustainably boost their profits. Our projects typically achieve a profitability improvement of 100 to 500 basis points. With our Smart Profit GrowthSM approach, we help clients to boost their top line instead of cutting costs. In recent years, many companies have achieved considerable improvements on the cost side. Yet many have taken cost cutting as far as it can go. Not so with the top line, where there is still enormous potential.
Our projects cover all areas of top-line growth. Typical areas/topics are:
- Strategy (growth and defense strategies, new business models, market entry strategies, etc.)
- Marketing (meaningful segmentation, brand and product positioning, product/service design, marketing efficiency)
- Pricing (avoiding price wars, innovation pricing, effective price execution, discount systems, global pricing, etc.)
- Sales (channel strategies, sales efficiency, sales force effectiveness, sales incentives, etc.)
- Holistic Smart Profit GrowthSM programs (change management, organization of commercial functions, KPIs, etc.)
