Maximizing supplier and contractor productivity
Success in the ultra-competitive construction industry requires suppliers and contractors to be agile, adaptable, focused, and dynamic. The productivity of your workforce is paramount to your return on investment and overall success here.
Suppliers tend to be too tied down with their daily business to innovate and assess opportunities for over-proportional, profitable growth—via key project penetration, new products and/or services, and sales force initiatives.
Contractors are forced to bid very competitively, and thus perceive a need to limit investments in people and equipment (always going with the cheapest purchase price).
We provide the tools and processes for suppliers to assess and quickly capitalize on over-proportional growth opportunities. We can ensure that your project penetration will improve, your product/service launches will accelerate and succeed, and your sales force ROI will increase when making training and productivity investments.
We advise contractors on how to improve productivity by working with suppliers in a win-win environment. While this may increase upfront cost, when done right, the improvement of processes and products over the course of a project will improve contractor output and efficiency, ultimately reducing cost and increasing profit.
