Why Use Us?

What Our Clients say

Profit

They focused on Business need and not ‘budget figures’, and provided us with a clear cost visibilty which surprised us because they showed us we were wasting money in areas we thought we had under control

Low Risk

They were a ‘Low Risk’ option for us. They have a proven track record of success and operate an open and honest business model which allows you to stay informed and in control whilst they stay and deliver the benefits. Put simply they put their money where their mouth is and also guarantee their service.

Change

We were in a ‘creeping breakeven’ situation and nothing we did seemed to change that. The PCL team were great, they mapped out our business processes and helped us better understand the way we actually worked, they then worked with us to change the things that were holding us back.

Resource

They provided us with the time and resource we lacked and because they did all the work it didnt take up our staff’s time either, unlike other consultants we have had in the past.

Skills

The range of skills they could call on was remarkable and seemed endless, Project, Operations, Sales, Marketing, Change, Process to name just a few. But they had very clear objectives and thus limited the input to pure essentials to meet our needs, thus keeping costs to a minimum.

Speed

We knew there were things wrong and indeed had a number of issues to address that never quite seemed to hit the radar screen. Pickwick Consulting quickly sorted that for us, prioritising the areas according to benefit to us and then quickly taking action to realise those benefits and giving us increased profit, it all happened in a matter of weeks!

Advice

We had a few areas we didn’t know how to handle and the advice we received provided a clarity on what we needed to do in those areas, It was also very helpful to have a ‘fresh set of eyes’ provide a sounding board for our own ideas and give us comfort in what we were doing was the right thing for our business.

Knowledge

We admitted to having a lack of knowledge in certain areas, especially in the ‘best practice’ and ‘profit improvement’ fields where keeping upto date with new thinking and technology is hard. Phil Pickwick’s team not only gave us that knowledge they instilled a continuous improvement culture in us and provided a knowledge transfer to my staff as well.

Culture

Phil Pickwick and his team fitted in perfectly with our business, they were easy to get on with but professional and business focused to solve our client concerns. They were flexible and they did not have a ‘one size fits all’ mentality and tailored their input to what we needed. In short we found it hard to believe they were ‘external’ consultants.

Strategy

We operated very much day to day but weren’t too sure where we should have been heading longer terms. They did a business review on our current processes and helped focus us on where we wanted to get to, they then helped us develop meaningful and measurable milestones to get to our goals.

Problem Solving

We knew there were things wrong but couldn’t put our finger on what. I was sceptical about employing ‘consultants’ but It was quite enlightening and refreshing to see the calm professionalism the Pickwick team went about their disciplined problem solving methodolgy and the way they fully supported their conclusions making it a no brainer for us.

Politics

We needed to ensure on behalf of the shareholders that that our thinking was the right way to go and then to provide an audit trail for the proposed changes and subsequent implementation. Pickwick Consulting, through their disciplined project management model
