The client

An innovative automotive manufacturer seeking success in futuristic car-sharing environment.

The challenge

A global manufacturer aimed to meet the changing marketplace and the vehicle-sharing environment driven by millennials. A business structure and plan to move forward with innovative new product designs and applications was critical. These plans would include bringing on new leadership, determining which suppliers to work with, and planning for financial capitalization of funding initiatives. The manufacturer needed an expert perspective to advise their executive management.

The solution

With the vision of innovative, futuristic products in mind, our experts helped develop a long-term business plan with strategies for the following areas: supply chain, technology partners, capitalization, leadership, and manufacturing. Furthermore, we helped establish key performance indicators (KPIs) with specific, measurable goals that could be achieved year after year. Finally, we supported their accounting and financial management in preparation for successful funding initiatives. 

The benefit

Our on-site presence allowed our team to become trusted advisors. We worked side-by-side with the manufacturer, urgently responding to needs and making rapid decisions when necessary. We assisted the manufacturer with business planning, product strategy, site selections, and financial services. As a result, KPIs are currently on target, and our experts are committed to an ongoing relationship with the client for continued success.
