To whom it may concern:
At BCA Environmental Consultants, we know environmental consulting services and we perform these services well. However, when it comes to the business side of our company, we have spent too much of our time looking in the rear-view mirror rather than out of the windshield. We didn’t know what we didn’t know, and that made us average, and in some cases, vulnerable.
BCA is often charged with solving problems. Our clients trust us because of our vision, integrity, adaptability, and passion. We are a family, and through service to our clients, they become family too. Cogent has a similar philosophy. Their goal has been clear from day one – put our interests first, as their success is measured by the success of their clients.
Cogent has become a trusted partner, helping us recognize our weaknesses, sharpen our efficiencies, and eliminate vulnerabilities. Roger Hutson has spent weeks with us, challenging and pushing us to identify areas where improvements can be made, create key performance indicators so we can build a framework for accountability and measure our success, and maximize our growth opportunities, all while building a structure where our valued employees can grow and excel in their careers. Working with them has been challenging, fast paced, and sometimes eye opening, but the results are clear.
We have spent many years learning from our mistakes. Now, with Cogent’s guidance, we are on the path of rapid growth, limiting mistakes and taking advantage of the added skills we’ve learned from Roger and the Cogent team.
I strongly recommend Roger and Cogent Analytics to companies who are seeking to improve their business and striving to grow.
