Problems We Solve for Companies

Needing Business and Technology Advisory Services?

Companies struggling with their processes and indecisive on what changes they need to make in their processes or systems would need help defining their challenges and vision before they are ready to implement any changes. They might need help as they might be struggling with the decision of buy vs. build, not being able to align the stakeholders, or integration issues post-merger.

How is ElevatIQ different?

from Other Business and Technology Advisory Consulting Firms?

Unlike other business process consulting firms, ElevatIQ’s expertise is not just limited to business and strategy needs. ElevatIQ has much deeper capabilities with process transformation, enterprise architecture, and system integration.

When it comes to business model transformation initiatives such as new channels or business models, you need to analyze your current processes and systems comprehensively. Other business process consulting firms lack technical expertise. Much needed for the ERP transformation initiatives to be successful.
While most other business process consulting firms might focus on one or a couple of systems such as ERP, WMS, or eCommerce, they lack the holistic perspective to build the enterprise architecture. Not to mention the technical risks because of technical biases.
While most other business process consulting firms specialize in only a couple of systems, ElevatIQ works closely with over 200 systems and tracks them on a regular basis. This allows them to find solutions with the highest ROI exhausting all the possibilities in the market.
Building a vendor-agnostic architecture requires you to draw data flows between different warehouses, channels, processes, and systems. It also requires you to identify the source of truth for each shared dataset. Finally, you need to design master data governance process flows and how you will maintain the integrity of architecture through the process and data controls. There are very few firms like ElevatIQ that have deep expertise in building business process architecture that scales.
Most other business process consulting firms don’t have a comprehensive background with all data sets an enterprise might have, such as sales, marketing, HR, supply chain, and finance data. In most cases, they end up overengineering one department over the next, resulting in a power struggle among functions. ElevatIQ can help avoid these challenges through its enterprise data model expertise.
Understanding and negotiating software licenses and contracts require you to have an understanding of transaction and integration flows. Your decisions could fire back if you didn’t understand the licensing model of enterprise software and business systems. We have dealt with the licensing of one of the largest enterprise software and understand different architectural patterns and licensing models deeply.

Our Business and

Technology Advisory Services

ElevatIQ business and technology advisory services include business process re-engineering, business process improvement, business process documentation, change, and project management, post-merger integration, and audit support.

Business Process Re-engineering


Our business process re-engineering services are especially helpful for companies that might be outgrowing non-standard, heavily customized, or legacy ERP systems. Our process of re-engineering services starts with an assessment, with a thorough analysis of current data and systems, followed by a site visit and interviews with stakeholders. Once the changes are identified and agreed upon, as-is and to-be models are built, along with the training and governance materials that teams can use.

Change and Project Management


This service helps in managing any transformation initiative, whether you are making process or system changes. The change process has three major steps preparing for change, managing change, and reinforcing change. Each of these steps has a deliverable, such as a business case, implementation roadmap, training plan, engagement model, and change governance plan.

Business Process Improvement


This service helps in hitting a specific KPI such as the amount of waste, inventory turns, or demand forecast accuracy. Through the root cause analysis of current data and processes, an as-is and to-be plan is built. Using an MVP approach, an initial pilot is created to understand the impact of the change, followed by continuous monitoring and improvement.

Post Merger Integration (PMI)


This service helps companies when they might need help with pre-diagnosis of the technical risks, strategy for consolidation, or consolidating the system footprint post-merger. This helps companies reduce the system footprint and streamline processes, as well as remove data siloes and improve operational efficiency as they get ready for the next phase of their growth.

Business Process Documentation


This process helps reverse engineering the processes deeply buried in business systems. This exercise is helpful for companies that are building operational capacity plans for the next phase of their growth. The process is then followed by the to-be process models, comparing the changes and investment that would be required to grow to the next inflection point.

Our Methodology

for Business and Technology Advisory

Our methodology starts with the assessment of your current business processes. This step is typically followed by a deep discovery and analysis phase to probe into business process issues and come up with recommendations for business process re-engineering, followed by an implementation and optimization plan.

Business And Technology Advisor

1
Assessment


Through primary and secondary research, this assessment digs into each of your datasets, transactions, and processes to identify the core reasons for current challenges, a strategy to solve current issues, and a phased approach to execute recommendations.

3
Implementation


This step is the implementation phase, and, depending upon the complexity of the change, whether the change is system-related or process, an appropriate strategy could be employed to implement the changes.

2
Business Process Analysis and Documentation


This phase goes through a series of workshops to document the business processes and recommend reengineering steps that could be financially and technically risky during the implementation. As well as the process reengineering will help streamline operations, resulting in operational efficiencies.

4
Adoption and Optimization


Post implementation, this step measures the desired KPIs and process compliance and adoption post-implementation phase. In the case of any deviations, the appropriate steps are taken until the processes are able to hit the KPIs desired.
