For Immediate Release: Industrial Solutions is pleased to announce the formation of Apprize Solutions, a new management consulting firm offering an expanded package of services for companies outside the traditional heavy industrial section. Apprize Solutions offers clients a team of operations, finance, and marketing executives with global business experience committed to helping businesses grow.
"We offer a hands-on approach designed to translate into tangible results," said John Von Thaden, managing partner and VP/GM for Apprize Solutions. "Clients get more than just a list of recommendations, we actually prefer to engage in the business and work side-by-side with company leaders to execute new plans and effect change. In this way, we can model leadership, ensure momentum, and course correct as needed to ensure the agreed upon changes get implemented and become part of the new business model."
The typical customer contracts with Apprize Solutions for a 4-6 month engagement which includes initial assessments, recommendations, and the development of an action plan for implement. Once the plan is approved, the larger team is then apprized of the current state assessment and future state objectives and action plans. The Apprize Solutions team members and the client's team work collectively to instill new processes and pursue new initiatives. In this way, Apprize Solutions team members are able to walk along side and shepherd the client's leadership and employees as they do the heavy lifting necessary to see the changes take root and begin to germinate.
