, management control
etc. But our offer also covers any type of organizational mission in general.

Strategy & organization
In terms of strategic missions
, we have carried out strategic plans and related business plans. We have challenged business plans.
In addition, we supported a group in identifying acquisition targets in Europe.
missions deal with the review of organizational charts or redesign of processes. They aim at reorganizing and securing the company as well as implementing new tools. These so-called "process" missions (for instance revisions of invoicing circuits or missions about customer knowledge) include sometimes a search for improvement of administrative productivity.
These missions aim to improve the efficiency of management in general and finance in particular.
Missions to review reporting
(from masterplans to challenging of existing dashboards) are most common since service providers often have several activities in their portfolios.
Integration of more "physical" and not exclusively financial data is a characteristic of Akeance Consulting's missions.
Missions to support management control services
obviously implies a better knowledge / a better control of the margin
, the difficulty being often to identify the direct costs by activity within a service group.
Managing transformation itself consists in monitoring organizational projects
(resulting from an internal will or following a change in the scope of activity) or information system projects
. We have a recognized know-how in project management
in both areas, based on proven methods and tools.
Managing the transformation
of an organization is linked to the target organization. This is the purpose of Akeance Consulting's missions during the integration of two intermediate size-companies or an intermediate size-company within a group.
Akeance Consulting also has an extensive experience in team reallocation for service providers companies.
Other missions concern the transformation of the company through the implementation of IT solutions
, whether it be ERP, software packages, or information system tools in general such as dematerialization solutions, electronic document management, BI solutions, or master data management solutions.
Our missions cover the analysis, the choice
and the implementation of information systems and transverse solutions
. Our knowledge of the business and associated IT solutions facilitates dialogues with teams in order to meet their needs. Our offer is completed by a change management
Improving the quality of the service delivered to customers almost systematically requires a better internal process within the company.
"It's the tool's responsability! "This is the usual excuse for poor service quality. However, our experience does not always share this adage. In fact, a detailed examination of the process itself quickly reveals areas for improvement, whether it involves modifying the authorizations within a team, integrating more first-level control or even rebalancing customer portfolios within a department.
A lack of knowledge of tools by internal teams is often an obstacle to the good quality of services
The service providers industry is obviously fond of a state-of-the-art information system. Very often, the information system, in addition to a central ERP, is made up of a multitude of applications/ ad hoc tools integrated into the information system. However, within the teams, this or that tool is not necessarily perfectly mastered; all the more when turnover is high.
It is important to underline that any malfunctions and dissatisfactions are not necessarily due to the tools themselves, but rather to the teams' lack of knowledge with the tool.
