Almost every company has a strategy element based on organic growth; that is growing the business through increased productivity, new asset creation for capacity increase, customer base expansion, or introducing new products, versus M&A activity. The challenge for companies is the implementation of cost improvement programs and a culture of continuous improvement to rapidly generate additional free cash flow from operations to fund (at least partially) organic growth programs.
A fundamental core value for Audere focuses on client results, which implies that we apply our efforts in coloration with the client with a constant commitment toward the program target(s). In previous programs we helped clients achieve 2% to 17% increased throughput with no capital outlays while reducing the overall cost base 1% to 7%. (Figures are based on case studies and program documentation).
These throughput increases allow companies to grow the top line by gaining market share or, in some cases, finally fulfill current customer demand, while lowering operating costs and not increasing fixed costs. The sources of funds generated through these collaborative programs are applied to build step-change growth.
