Now Andersen, Tomorrow Accenture, They’ve got a lot of Selling to do


In compliance with the August arbitrator’s report on the conflict between Arthur Andersen and Andersen Consulting, the consulting firm has announced its new name to be Accenture. It wants this new identity to fully brand it in the marketplace, a task we think will be harder than Accenture admits.

Fostering a Culture of Adaptability


Having the right IT infrastructure is critical to consistent growth and profitability for midsize companies. Sadly, many business applications don’t support changes to both business processes and a company’s organizational structure. In fact, many are inflexible and create disconnects between departments. However, there is a solution that’s built to enable growth and adaptability in all business functions and operations.

For example, enterprises seeking solutions based on the Linux platform in Q3 2003 made up 9.5% of TEC's demand pool; however, that number increased to 10.8% in Q3 2004.

Instead of Discounting, Back Some Value Out of Your Proposal


Last minute discounting has become so prevalent that many companies have come to depend on it as their default sales strategy. Employing a go-to-market strategy of being the lowest cost provider is one thing, but dramatic, tactical discounting on every deal will erode your company's margins and leave you digging a deeper and deeper hole in which your company will ultimately bury itself.

example of a consulting proposal  within your timeframe, for example. Understand, I would much rather provide other concessions that don't cost my company money and don't educate my customer that whenever I am going to ask them for an order, I am going to give up part of my margin and commission. But I do live in the real world and understand that for my clients, pricing concessions are sometimes required to get the deal signed. When you haven't done an adequate job of selling the unique business value your product or service will Read More
