Reaching and Sustaining Market Leadership
"Our Sales Grew Immediately from Average Contract Value which Doubled and Our Sales Our Sales Doubled in Just 18 months"
"Acrelic Helped Us Commercialize a Product We Produced for a Defense Client and We Gained 85% Market Share in 3 years"
"Great Strides in our $500M+ R&D Portfolio and We Now Objectively Rank and Stack Rank All New Investment Proposals"
Acrelic Group customized a process to use marketing metrics to evaluate capital and asset spending in our company. They trained me so I could label this process as “Ours” and start a cascade from the Executive Leadership team down to a line worker.
Our immediate savings showed up at the end of our first quarter after implementation. We saved tens of millions of dollars by reducing our spend on supplies for equipment being retired. Exactly what I wanted to achieve.
Classic Turnaround Situation of a Business Unit that was >50 years old, with a declining revenue stream coming from 100K SKUs of custom products for eletronics and laser research.
We worked collaboritively with the Acrelic Group to turnaround the sales process, establish an outbound sales process, and learn how to have our engineers “consult” on customers needs, not just fulfill an order request froma catalogue over the phone.
Results spoke for themselves. Average contract and order values rose immediately from the process, coaching, and scripting for our engineering sales team, the outbound approach was raising revenue and profitability. We turned the business around and generated 18 months of high double digit growth before we were sold to another company in the industry.
Corporate Development Advisory
Startup Mentoring and Advisory
Our Process is Simple and Pragmatic
Our experience guides a smooth, strong, well communicated partnering approach with clients. Acrelic advisors often complement an existing team and provide guidance, program management, quality control, and pace-setting. The chosen paths for client engagements are meant to be performed in weeks, not months and shown to be actionable in short order. Our approach begins with DISCOVERY.
Discovery, also known as the Landscape Phase, provides the baseline of understanding to the scope and dimension of the effort. In order to understand the root problems and establish a more specific scope we conduct the following:
- Establish a baseline and current view
- Assess any relevant internal plans, processes and assumptions
- Establish the desired/expected outcomes, specifications, objectives and other results needed to succeed
- Creates a Series of Assumptions and Hypothesis that need validation in the next phases and provides a baseline of common understanding of the business
2. Conduct GAP Analysis and Secondary Research
- Scope the effort to close the data gaps
- Review Available Research and Client Business Plans for strategic guidance and Identify Tangential areas that can affect the effort including regulatory, competitive, supply chain and other relevant factors
- Produce Strategic Characterizations of the Project, CRitical Metrics and Key Success Factors to measure, and Provide a foundation for creating an objective rating and ranking process to understand the top finding and issues
