My experience with Cogent Analytics has been very interesting and rewarding. Throughout the entire process every individual I worked with seemed to have me and Paint One’s best interest at heart.
The process started with my taking a call and then agreeing to complementary visit by a Regional Vice president who was in the area. He spent about a half a day going through some high-level aspects of my business. After his assessment I agreed to have an analyst come in for a couple of days. David Drylie arrived and started a deeper dive into my business. In just a couple of days, David uncovered a significant opportunity for profitability improvements, and we agreed to an engagement.
The following week a Senior Project Director, Vince Botto arrived. He had a draft plan and chart to show how the engagement would unfold. I was extremely encouraged by his confidence in our ability to solve our issues and improve profits for my company.
From the very first day, Vince brought a very high level of enthusiasm and focused on those key areas of the business. As a result of our efforts together we now have a weekly management meeting with metrics. I have a Financial Summary and twelve-week cash flow model that Vince trained my employees to create and review each week. We have formalized Roles and Responsibilities and really improved communications throughout the company.
We have now transitioned into the Life Cycle phase whereby Vince will remain in contact with me reviewing metrics and keeping us on track.
I look forward to my continued, long term relationship with Vince and with Cogent Analytics.
