Business Planning For Growth
Our expertise of over 20 years is in working with all sizes of business. During this service, we offer one-on-one and group collaboration workshop for business owners and organisations wishing to grow.
Whether you're launching new products / services or you're building on existing foundations, we offer independent analysis that takes a holistic view of the areas for improvement, including what works and what doesn't, culminating in a robust and realistic plan for success.
Working closely with you and your team, we'll examine existing processes, challenges and opportunities. This will facilitate discussion to determine aspirations, potential for expansion, strategic goals and general direction. Furthermore, we consider possibilities for new revenue streams, the leveraging of existing strengths and what tactical adjustments could help maximise the results you seek. All together, this will form the basis for solid next-step planning, where together we will define a clear pathway towards how to achieve the agreed outcomes.
We'll assist you to implement clear plans that are unique to your business, vision and goals. By providing structure, guidance and support to you throughout the journey, through to execution, we'll also be in a position to follow up with optional evaluation and additional ongoing support if desired.
eCommerce & Digital Enablement
Whether you have an established presence but wish to take it to the next level, or you are just starting out - we provide detailed guidance and infrastructural advice on how you can successfully harness the benefits of ecommerce.
Accept payments online, receive bookings, manage inventory, sell products and services, manage fulfilment, shipping and delivery and more.
We offer guidance and support around using the 'best of breed' eCommerce technology into existing or new platforms. We provide full advice and detailed planning around integration into a variety of third party apps such as NZ Post for "contactless" dispatch, Xero and other inventory / POS systems, and through APIs for unlimited number of other platforms to create a seamless experience.
Marketing and Training
We understand that not everyone is experienced in all the nuances of marketing. We have many years experience in both creating and managing customer experiences in the cloud and digital landscape and are best placed to provide extensive training to businesses on a range of marketing and online advertising techniques.
As part of the training, we provide full and comprehensive guidance and strategic direction with regard to setting up, running and growing a successful marketing campaign for the business, brand, product or service.
Marketing can be daunting, but we will work with you to create a plan that will continue to delivery results and show you what to do, when to do it and how to best maximise your ROI.
