HIRE PARTNERS | NOT CONSULTANTS
Let us help you grow and evolve your business by creating a lasting partnership that enables your long-term success. By methodically evaluating your team members and processes, we are able to gain a clear understanding of which areas of your business can be improved and how. After our evaluation is complete, we provide you with an action plan that is easy to both understand and implement.
Don't just take our word for it, read what one of our Customers had to say:
"We had the pleasure of working with Ark Applications for several months to scale and build up our core business systems and make a more robust sales funnel. Since hiring their firm, our sales have more than doubled and our business systems are running more efficient than ever before. The advice they gave was not only practical and easy to implement but it was tailored to our industry which has unique nuances like extreme seasonality and dynamic pricing. The process they built for us allowed us to tune our current system incrementally instead of overhauling it which allowed our sales staff and front desk to adopt it in their own way and personalize these new strategies to their current strengths. Overall, I would highly recommend Ark Apps to any business who is looking to scale to the next level and is looking for the right partner to organize their business systems to be as successful as possible."
Tim Moore, CEO Diamond View Studios
WHAT DOES THIS PROCESS LOOK LIKE?
1 - ASSESSMENT
Our initial consulting phase focuses on listening and learning about your business, your team and your goals. We want to learn about you and you learn about us. We want to fully understand the 'tools' that you are using and the process in which you are operating.
2 - SET GOALS & ACTION PLANS
Once we have enough information to work with, we hold vision building sessions and start mapping out strategic plans. We also look at measurements of technology if available and conduct a responsibility matrix throughout the engagement.
3 - LETTING GO
Finally we aim to set you up on how you can follow up and hold yourself, as an executive, accountable. We look at reviews to see if there has been progress and where changes need to be made. Once we complete our work, we may continue to serve in a mentoring role to continue to help our clients make progress toward their goals.
BUSINESS EVALUATION + STRATEGY
Finding the right direction for your company to seek new opportunities or respond to marketplace dynamics can be quite difficult. We will work with you to create a better understanding of both internal and external factors that have impacted your business. Our team will then analyze the landscape and create a revised strategy that will enable your team to be more effective and be rewarded with greater success.
Product-based businesses live and die by their ability to fulfill customer orders with the products that they produce.
