A mid-sized home-delivery provider of specialty consumer goods had acquired several businesses in adjacent markets resulting in multiple operations with degrees of overlap. The parent desired to have all its operations integrated and excess assets and personnel rationalized. The mandate was to complete analysis and planning within four weeks, begin implementation immediately after, and to take immediate action where indicated.
Flow consulting worked with the CEO, CFO, and COO to identify all areas of spending, operational overlaps, and outside forces that affect location decisions. Flow led the data gathering, organization and analysis, and designed a full-day rationalization planning meeting. Facilitating the leaders and other key players from finance, marketing, and operations. Flow helped the group to isolate all potential savings from rationalizing redundant locations and activities. Following the structure and leadership provided by Flow Consulting, the team worked through the support requirements and determined what additional analysis was needed for further savings.
- The team identified savings representing a 2% positive impact to EBITDA.
- A rapid-response integration plan positioned the team to implement in half the time of initial team and leadership expectations.
