By streamlining processes and reducing internal costs, Aplifi will be able to more quickly address the needs of the market while offering a consultative approach in concepts and ideas to better utilize the organizations product suite in conjunction with other customer processes.
“Having worked for the past sixteen years where a culture was immersed in Six Sigma practices, I have seen first hand the positive impact the principles offered by this type of initiative have on an organization. They consistently exceed customer expectations, achieve growth through productivity, provide competitive differentiators and build greater pride and satisfaction with their internal team”, said Shannon McLaughlin, Vice President Product Management, Aplifi. “We have already started down the path at Aplifi with a select group of employees and will have the first round of certifications completed in 2012.”
