Is a Synergy48 Integrated Business Improvement Solution right for my business?

It’s time to ask yourself: could this be the solution I’m looking for?

If any of these sound familiar it may be time to take action.

  • You want a clear and effective process to follow to make the next step in your business journey as effortless as possible.
  • You don’t have the time to source the people you need right now, and they have to be the right people!
  • You’re overwhelmed with the challenge of implementing and coordinating multiple improvement strategies at once.
  • You’re in fast growth mode and finding problems you didn’t know you had.
  • Your business has plateaued, sales are flat, costs are up, growth has stagnated and you’re looking for clarity on what to do about it.
  • You’re struggling to step back and let go of day to day operations to leading and managing multiple teams.
  • You’ve taken over an established business and the cracks are rapidly appearing. You need to take action fast!
  • You’re excited about the future of your business and ready to take action – but also somewhat overwhelmed and looking for a  clear pathway forward.

Who we work with

Business owners who are looking for an integrated step by step process to effectively manage all aspects of their business improvement strategy to:
  • Increase profitability
  • Increase sustainability/efficiency
  • Deal with a significant external opportunity or threat
  • Prepare for an expansion, franchising, takeover or similar
  • Develop an exit plan or prepare for sale
  • “Renovate” a business you’ve just acquired or taken over.

Most likely you’ll be turning over somewhere between $1 million and $8 million although we can work effectively with businesses well outside those limits if the circumstances are a good fit.

We have specialists with expertise across a range of industries including manufacturing, retail, health services, professional services and many more.

But it’s not just about what you want to achieve…

While what you want to achieve as a result of implementing a business improvement plan is important… how you want to achieve it and where your priorities lie are also key considerations in making the decision to work with a Synergy48 Team.

  • Are you serious about taking the next big step in your business journey?
  • Do you want to create something of enduring value?
  • Do you enjoy working with innovators and action takers who will challenge and inspire you?
  • Are you open to doing things differently, to challenging the status quo to get a better outcome?

Are we right for you?

In the end it comes down to FIVE key factors, only you can decide how important each of those factors is to you and your business…. click on the images below to decide for yourself.

Wealth of Expertise

Is having access to a single, reliable source of quality business specialists of value to you?

Working with a Synergy48 Integrated Business Improvement Team provides you with as you need it access to specialist expertise across every aspect of successful business growth.  No more scoping around looking for quality specialists, comparing multiple proposals and still wondering if you’ve made the best choice.

Will we always have the right solution for your business? 

No we won’t… however when that is the case you can be confident that we will let you know and we will work with you to help source the best solution.

Are we the cheapest?

Probably not, after all, you get what you pay for… our focus is on providing real value for money.

Integration & Coordination

Is having all of your business specialists and advisors work together as a coordinated team of value to your business?

It’s our brand promise: “Working as one to fill the gaps that are holding you back”

Your Synergy48 team will work together as one to ensure that each part of your business improvement plan is fully integrated with every other part so that you achieve the results you are looking for in the most cost-effective and time-efficient way possible.

It saves money overall by reducing duplication of effort, prevents costly mistakes, ensures that everything is synchronised, implemented in the most cost effective sequence,  works together and leads to better outcomes.

Synergy48 and your accountant or other specialist advisors

We know how important a quality relationship with your accountant and other existing advisors can be.  We’ll work closely with your current advisors where they are providing the level and quality of service you need.

Synergy48 compared with a typical business coach, mentor or business improvement consultant.

Working with a business coach or business improvement consultant typically provides you with generalist expertise across a range of areas; guidance, support and accountability for getting things done; and connections to experts within their circle of influence.

Working with a Synergy48 team takes that one step further.

Rather than working with one consultant, your Synergy48 Team provides you with access to a comprehensive circle of high-quality business specialists selected to meet your business goals and objectives.

You select how much you want to spend each month and your money is spent on specialist services in line with your business improvement plan.

Every Synergy48 Project Manager is an experienced business consultant with a wide range of business expertise. If you wish they can provide generalist guidance, accountability and support as a part of managing your business improvement plan.

How Synergy48 Group works

Synergy48 specialists and coordinators work together using a centralised project management system. Every Synergy48 client has their own project hub which is managed by their personal project manager

Your Project Hub contains the results of your Business Assessment and your Business Planning Process, all of your individual sub-project briefs and budgets, expected outcomes and timelines.

You, your project manager and specialists working on your project can access your project hub at any time so that you can monitor progress, ask questions, share insights and updates, provide feedback and more.

Your project hub is completely secure, so you can be confident that only you, your project manager and your project team can access it.  And of course, all Synergy48 specialists sign confidentiality agreements at the start of each project.

Long term relationships

Is having long-term quality relationships with your business specialists and advisors important to you?

If not then you’re probably not a fit, because it’s VERY important to us. 

Synergy48 specialists are all SME business owners like you. They are committed to sharing the business journey and developing long-term successful relationships with their clients.

Here are some of the things Synergy48 Specialists say about the kinds of people they want to work with:

“Going somewhere – they have plans to grow – ambitions – someone you can work with over the long term.” Tony Sambell, Google Adwords Specialist.

“They don’t want to buy a dog and then bark themselves” Peter Sandor, Brand Strategy Specialist

Driven, innovative and open to expertise” Annemarie Cross, Podcasting Specialist

“They respect and value expertise and they are prepared to pay for it.” Harvey Bowlt, business law specialist

“They are different – they have a real point of difference and they care about what they do and how they do it.”  Peter Engelhardt, Brand Strategy Specialist.

“Trust and mutual respect. And they pay their bills on time.” Ian Bosler, Printing and Marketing, Sales Process Automation Specialist

“Their values! Their product or service is not just money to them – they actually care about doing it the best, care about not ripping people off, they are a good company.” Tony Sambell, Google Adwords Specialist

“They’re open minded, they have a genuine interest in learning new things and exploring new approaches” Damien Battersby, IT specialist

People who appreciate the value of expertise.” Ken Mackie, Advertising and Media Specialist

“People who are happy to go outside their comfort zone and stretch boundaries” Ian Hopkinson, SEO Specialist

You're in the driver's seat

Of course you want to be in the driver’s seat of your business!

Your Synergy48 Team isn’t there to tell you what to do or when to do it. You set the business goals and objectives and you control the budget, timeframes and scope of your business improvement plan.

Think of us as your outsourced business improvement and business advisory board.
