CONSULTING PHASES
QUICK “WINS”

In general, a project will have four phases, but we aim to implement quick “wins” as soon as identified, throughout the project cycle, to provide immediate dollars and cents payback, and to establish a sound basis for the longer-term initiatives

  1. Overview – to become familiar with your operation and the workflow by activity and function.
  2. Gap Analysis and Benchmarking – to quantify the $ potential for improvement by evaluating effectiveness of processes, as well as comparison with industry best practices.
  3. Implementation – will focus on changing limiting conditions, resources and presenting tangible results. We present a detailed written report, which would include key findings, specific recommendations, and next steps.
  4. Knowledge Transfer – the tools, concepts, and recommendations that are implemented during the project are passed on to your team for long-term continuity.

Our Consultants have operating backgrounds, and you will receive practical advice and achievable “best practices” recommendations. What makes Smyyth unique is that we not only understand the theory, we also have deep hands-on practical experience in the field. The revenue cycle abounds with opportunities to improve financial performance, including faster DSO and reducing the claims and disputes that eat away at your profits.
