Every day SPRYTek works with businesses across the Southeast  US that like what we have to offer, but they ask if we can prove Return on Investement (ROI).  While what we bring to a business is often immeasurable in terms of employee growth and process improvement, Return on Investment is usually gauged differently by each customer’s expectations.  This is one reason we like to say, that SPRYTek’s value is determined by the results that our customers can measure.  For example, a testimonial from Chris Leab, President of a family entertainment firm, engaged SPRYTek to initially deliver a management of his business – and today we are totally involved in all aspects of improving their profitability.

How would you rate your business’s current performance tracking tools? If you would give yourself a high rating in tracking performance, I would also imagine that you have realized the benefits of doing so. If you would not give yourself or your business a high rating in regards to daily/weekly/monthly/yearly performance, I would say that’s because you have not yet seen the value of doing so!

With our clients, shortly after developing a few simple tools for tracking the business’s Sales and Costs, the client is able to see where they have improvement opportunities and can take corrective actions to capitalize on them. Tools to use for this can range from ERP systems, company databases or Excel worksheets. Reports can then be established to show performance in the Key Result Areas on a daily or weekly basis (or, in fact, for any date range of your choice). Comparing actual results vs. the previous period and also compared to goals, will help you clearly identify improvement opportunities to increase sales, decrease costs and improve profits.

Typically, after a couple of months of recording, tracking, and evaluating performance metrics, a business leader is able to start realizing sales increases and/or cost reductions, in excess of 13%. Contact Rick Thibodeau or Larry Dukes today, to learn more about how SPRYTek can help you set up your own tracking, reporting and evaluation tools, and assist you in achieving your goals.

Currently the immediate future looks positive, with some light shining through at the end of the tunnel. Businesses are starting to hire again, there is a movement to refocus on not just surviving, but making a profit.

Through this worldwide recession and the competitive market, companies have come to realize the importance of making the optimum use of their IT infrastructure and finding innovative ways to cut costs. Reuters Service predicts that over 21% of companies will choose an outside organization to manage their network environment to save on costs in the coming years. The consolidation and budgeting of resources means that these companies are now positioned to enjoy the benefits of strategic partnerships. Businesses now must run on leaner and more efficient budgets, as companies continue to maximize return on investment and operational expenditure.
