Business Analytics

Most successful companies embrace change.  They understand that in order to keep up with their competition they need to be ahead of them. Whether your company has 5 employees or 1000, business practices should always be analyzed and updated to maximize employee productivity and output. 

SMB Consulting

Small and medium businesses should be able to take advantage of the same level of expertise typically geared towards large enterprises. They may have fewer resources but still encounter the same day-to-day problems.

 

Top Reasons for Lost Productivity

 

  • Repetitive tasks - Automate repetitive tasks to increase workflow.

  • Outdated software/hardware - A simple upgrade can have a large effect on an employee's performance and moral.

  • Undertrained employees - Software is like any other tool and requires training even when upgrading software versions. Changing the position of a single button can cause frustration and lost productivity.

  • Outdated practices - The fax machine is a great example of an outdated practice. By simply transitioning to an online fax service you decrease costs, increase productivity by having faxes delivered to your email, and reduce lost time walking to and from the fax machine.

 

Hiloma’s purpose is to fill a gap left by the competitors, where the main focus is on empowering small to medium businesses and providing the same tools as large enterprises. In a market where companies are trying to increase productivity and efficiency but without the same resources, Hiloma is able to use technology in order to attain these goals.

An average employee will lose 30 minutes to 1 hour everyday due to repetitive tasks or other obstacles. In a business with 30 employees this adds up to 7800 hours of lost productivity. This alone is over $150,000 of lost capital.

 

Allow us to help you find those lost hours by analyzing your systems and your employees' work flows. The smallest changes can have a drastic increase on productivity and employee morale.

 

The first step is to have Hiloma come into your office, analyse your systems and conduct employee interviews. You would be surprised how often an employees input can help find unknown roadblocks and obstacles.

Large Enterprise Consulting

Large enterprises normally have onsite IT departments and since the majority of needs are already met internally, it is rare that they will bring in outside consultation.  However, many companies are not equipped or trained to be able to analyse their own practices and often miss opportunities to help their employees be more efficient and productive, therefore requiring outside expertise. 

The priorities of both small and medium along with large enterprises in 2011 are as follows (Gartner EXP): 

 

TOP 5 BUSINESS PRIORITIES

 

  • Business process improvement

  • Reducing enterprise costs

  • Improving enterprise workforce effectiveness

  • Attracting and retaining new customers

  • Increasing the use of information/analytics

 

TOP 5 TECNOLOGY PRIORITIES

 

  • Business intelligence

  • Enterprise applications (ERP-Enterprise Resource Planning, CRM- Customer Relationship Management, and others)

  • Servers and storage technologies (virtualization)

  • Legacy application modernization

  • Collaboration technologies (intercompany or external)

 

The majority of the above require special skill sets that many in-house IT departments do not possess. Although some of the mentioned priorities may not touch the technical aspect of a company’s workings, the majority do and require a consultant specializing in these fields in order accomplish their goals.
