“The same companies that need to improve processes and business results the most are often the companies that can least afford to hire a high-priced business consultant.” –Mary Poul
PressMediaWire.com (Press Release Distribution) – Oct 15,2010 –
A top business consultant can help a company improve processes, create a new business strategy, improve marketing, and guide product development. But business consulting talent comes with a high price—something fewer companies can afford in this era of contracting markets and tight credit.
A new software model from iCanPilot creates the first truly do-it-yourself virtual facilitation solution that guides users through complex business growth projects the same way a top-priced consultant would—for less than $1,000.
“The same companies that need to improve processes and business results the most are often the companies that can least afford to hire a high-priced business consultant,” notes iCanPilot president Mary Poul. “That’s why we are working together with leading consultants to create software solutions that can guide companies through complex business growth projects like creating a new business plan or developing a value proposition. All for at least 50 times less than hiring the consultant directly.”
The software takes a project team through every step of a project, from building the team, to assessment and identifying issues, to brainstorming solutions, and creating a final blueprint for change. The process takes approximately the same amount of time to implement as hiring a consultant, but at a fraction of the cost.
“If you need a new business model, and you can’t afford an expensive consulting engagement with agencies like Innosight or Bain & Company, the iCanPilot solution offers an effective and affordable alternative,” says Poul. “Our proprietary software can guide any group through a similar process.”
The company’s first product, “Reinvent Your Business Model with Kay Plantes,” helps business owners and project teams implement the strategic process outlined in the bestselling book Beyond Price by Kay Plantes and Robert D. Finfrock. iCanPilot is also developing a product with the working title “Design Your Value Proposition with Mohan Sawhney,” which is scheduled to launch in December, 2010.
“The iCanPilot methodology can also help companies facilitate a global implementation process across an enterprise,” says Poul. “ICanPilot software is more consistent and more available than human trainers, allowing companies to provide high-quality, on-demand training anywhere in the world.”
