Wow. Wish I would of read this yesterday before I warned 4 hours of my business life with David a hard core salesmen that demanded at the end, we sign up for next day consulting or..., very intimidating and high pressure.

Felt like a Timeshare presentation and max pressure at the close. I just walked out!

Wow.. Beware

Profitable Future

I have been working with Rick for over the six weeks and I want you to know how happy and impressed I am with the work Rick had done and also the tools that IDS has been able to provide to GMW. When I decided to hire IDS I knew my business needed help but I was not sure where to look or what needed to change. Over the last six weeks Rick has integrated himself into operations at GMW which I think had been fundamental to achieving buy-in from GMW personnel and also has given Rick the best opportunity to make suggestions. Rick has developed working relationships with multiple key people at GMW which has resulted in an outgoing back and forth that results is better communication among GMW staff and had led to a number of changes in how we operate day to day. I have been given a number of tools that allow me to evaluate GMW’s operations in a way that we have never had before. Cash management, accounting tools and some changes to our reporting are going to make GMW’s operation smoother and more profitable in the future. From a management perspective I now feel more confident that I have a fuller picture of how things are going within each division of the company. I can say that I am fully satisfied with Rick’s efforts and work product with GMW! Rick has been professional, personable, insightful and always helpful. I am amazed at how much insight he has been able to provide during his time here and it is clear that Rick is passionate about helping GMW become more successful. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to talk more. I would, without hesitation recommend IDS and Rick to any small business that felt the need for outside consulting.

Transfer of Knowledge

A week before the phone call that brought us to IDS, I told my partner that we need help. Not only that we are paying too much in tax, I also do not believe that we are doing our accounting correctly. It feels like someone was listening to us that afternoon, and gave us Steve the next week. Steve has brought experience, knowledge and wisdom with him. One thing I will miss is our morning conversation; this is the avenue Steve used to transfer knowledge, which I need in running my business. He has the charisma and calmness that made everybody open up to him, a very important factor in getting transparency in place. We love Steve and he will be missed here in the office.

Improved Profitability

It was my pleasure to work with Bill, and I would highly recommend his services. He was instrumental in developing systems within our business to streamline tasks and improve profitability. Specifically, he helped us analyze our historical data to vastly improve our bidding process, as well as put methods in place to accurately job cost for future jobs. Additionally, he showed us the importance of measuring employee performance and using that feedback to motivate employees. I am grateful to Bill and the IDS team for their expertise. I fully expect $200,000 plus added to our bottom line yearly, as a direct result from these services.
