Welcome to Spring!
Spring is my favorite time of year! It’s that time when people are re-energized and looking forward to some long overdue summer sunshine. As I reflect on the first quarter of 2018, I have been thinking about a couple of blogs I wrote last year. The November and December blogs were about identifying the need for a business transformation firm like 5P, and our evolving service offerings.
As a young firm, we continue to build upon what we are doing to make a succinct differentiator in our offerings. It’s a bit of an art making things simple and consumable. Which can be a challenge being that we are business and technology solutioners.
At 5P Consulting, we do business smarter with process and technology. We focus first on the business problem, next the overall goals, then automation. We re-design or implement ERP and CRM SaaS based business applications: Financial, Sales, Marketing, Customer Service, Supply Chain, Inventory Management, Human Resources.
What we do at 5P Consulting
Integration, optimization and implementation are the themes we focus on in every client engagement.
5P Service Offerings:
- Business Improvement Services
- Executable Business Transformation Plan
