Streamline Consulting started when Lisa Clarken saw an opportunity in the market place. Small businesses start out as an expert in an area but no “ONE PERSON” can have all the skills needed, or indeed the time, to run a successful business. As businesses grow, LEAN processes and standardised procedures need to be implemented to ensure quality and clients needs are met. Through “WASTE” identification and removal, profits and productivity increase. Streamline Consulting offers its services to Professional Businesses as and when they need consultancy advice.
Lisa qualified as an accountant with ACCA and worked internationally with PWC and JP Morgan.
She has spent over 15 years in industry here in Ireland with a wide range of companies from Start ups to Management Companies, Construction and Developers to Hoteliers, Manufacturing to Property companies. In each role she has continuously sought ways to
- Improve efficiencies
- Improve processes
- Standardise procedures
- Implement new IT functions
A specific example where Lisa improved efficiencies and customer service is given below.
Implementation of e-invoicing and e-statements in a manufacturing company, Engine Re. Previously, month end took at least three hours with almost 200 statements, printing the statements, folding and placing in envelopes, stamping the envelopes and bringing them to the post box. Now, statements are sent with the click of a button to all the customers.
The statements are received by the customer on the last day of the month. Debt collection is faster as no statements can be missing in the post and also received a few days earlier. The statements can be easily searched for within the emails as opposed to searching for a hard copy.
This is SAVING the company €2,400 annually in postage alone not to mention the savings in stationery and man power which is at least one full weeks wages per year.
