Frankly, there’s nothing else like it that helps companies maximize profits and measures velocity of cash flowing through key facilities. PV Accelerator turns a lot of lights on very fast.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
Profit Velocity Solutions has launched its Consulting Alliance Program (CAP), designed to help consultancies and private equity firms improve the profitability of their manufacturing clients and portfolio companies. The CAP program equips consultants with a new, more granular lens to view and improve the profit- per-hour of a manufacturing client’s mix of products, customers, sales resources and equipment. This new approach is made possible by a unique metric called Profit Velocity, which improves decision making and increases ROA.
At the core of the CAP program is the PV Accelerator™ platform which augments how manufacturers analyze and manage profitability. It goes beyond standard unit margin metrics to add the dimension of time and throughput, which can uncover “hidden winners” and “false profits.” PV Accelerator gives consultancies a disruptive capability for their PE firm clients and their portfolio companies that can increase a manufacturer’s cash contribution by 3+% of revenues.
PV Accelerator has already been deployed in a number of manufacturing firms and is now being rolled out by consultants worldwide. Some of the initial consultancies include IBM Global Business Services, Performance Improvement Partners (PIP), TBM Consulting Group, Celerant Consulting, Capgemini, and Xonitek.
“With PV Accelerator, TBM Consulting Group enables asset-intensive manufacturers to rapidly increase EBITDA by 3+ points of revenue,” said Alistair Stewart, Director of Business Development for TBM. “Supported by TBM's proven S&OP methodology, PVA's patented mix-optimizing solution delivers dramatic gains in shareholder value, satisfying the most demanding investors.”
The Profit Velocity Solutions Consulting Alliance Program provides consultants with a comprehensive program with everything they need to successfully deploy and use PV Accelerator with their manufacturing clients. This includes product demos, training, technical and sales support, documentation, co-branded collateral, PR assistance, and joint marketing programs.
"The first question consultants usually ask their manufacturing clients is whether they are getting the most out of their existing plant and equipment. Our Consulting Alliance Program allows the consultants who work with us, to help their clients extract more profit and value out of equipment they already have in place, through the use of a new profit velocity metric," said Michael Rothschild, CEO of Profit Velocity Solutions. "All manufacturers measure profit-per-product-unit, but the PV metric, for the first time, measures profit-per-machine-hour – a metric that can provide unique insights into profitability and help deliver rapid and significant results."
Consulting partners have found the PV Accelerator platform to be a good match for Private Equity firms that take an active role in helping their portfolio companies achieve bottom-line improvements. In addition to assisting with profit improvement strategies, PE firms leverage the PV Accelerator as a due diligence tool to better assess acquisition targets. "We understand that PE firms need fast, insightful data analysis," added Rothschild. "PV Accelerator gives consultants advising PE firms the “missing metric” and an analytical and planning platform they need to make the most sense of the big data they compile---in the least possible time."
Consulting organizations partnering with Profit Velocity Solutions receive complete training, services, and support for implementing PV Accelerator from the Consulting Alliance Program team. PVS supports consultants to ensure clients reap all the benefits and achieve bottom line success. Profit Velocity Solutions is especially interested in partnering with firms that provide long-term, high impact, Continuous Profit Improvement consulting to their publicly-held manufacturing clients or that support PE firms and their high-product-variety manufacturing portfolio companies.
"PV Accelerator gives us an essential business improvement tool that sets us apart from the competition," said John Bisack, founder and president of Performance Improvement Partners. "Traditional business intelligence has become commoditized and may fall short of meaningful, bottom-line results, but PV Accelerator enables us to deliver the dramatic results clients are looking for, in a very short period of time." He added, “Frankly, there’s nothing else like it that helps companies maximize profits and measures velocity of cash flowing through key facilities. PV Accelerator turns a lot of lights on very fast.”
Profit Velocity’s innovative offering was featured recently in an Industry Week article entitled "The Missing Metric in Manufacturing," highlighted on Big4.com, and was also the subject of a detailed review by Ventana Research. These and other articles describe how Profit Velocity Solutions can help identify ‘hidden winners” and "false profits." Additional whitepapers like “Shareholders Pay for ROA” outline some of the myths and challenges that High Mix manufacturers face when trying to significantly raise profitability.
