Industries We Serve

Over the past 25 years, ACI Consulting has developed deep insight and expertise on the challenges of needs for clients in these industries:

Manufacturing

In this highly dynamic industry, Manufacturers are constantly under pressure to grow, control costs, and increase profitability. The most progressive and successful manufacturers leverage technologies to control business operations, ensure consistent quality, and take advantage of new commercial opportunities.

ACI Consulting wants to help you own your supply chain and cut costs.

Lets’ face it, manufacturers face stiff headwinds such as compliance, lack of oversight, and increasingly complex supply chains. They must also:

  • Protect business against catastrophic recalls – product recalls around the world are becoming more and more frequent and manufacturers are facing major disruption, damage to reputation, and overall financial liability.
  • Put an end to poor decision-making – getting detailed insight into operations can be a challenge and manufacturers who lack complete, accurate, and up-to-the-minute data face significant challenges to making timely decisions.
  • Command control of the entire supply chain – no matter how complex. In addition to staying on top of the key factors — costs, demand forecasting, production downtime, and inventory excess — supply chain partnerships are continually changing.

Not all manufacturers are alike, and we understand and appreciate the unique needs of:

  • Discrete Manufacturers
  • Job Shop Manufacturers
  • Process Manufacturers
  • Made-To-Order Manufacturers

And, how technology can enable them to:

  • Leverage data and analytics
  • Manage strategic partnerships
  • Develop innovative pricing
  • Keep up with regulatory compliance and traceability

Wholesale Distribution

The world of Wholesale Distribution is a balancing game. Distribution companies need to balance inventory, forecasting, and logistics processes with sales, customer service, and everything in between. On top of this is the on-going need to:

  • Surpass customer’s expectations, and
  • Increase profits

Distribution is tough and complex. Do these issues sound familiar: huge product inventories, narrow margins, diverse downstream customer requirements, long lead times, and unpredictable supply?

ACI Consulting understands the world of distributors and can deliver on solutions that:

  • Improve customer service with mobile technologies – both in the warehouse and out on the road. Without it, your team can end up being tied to a computer terminal or wasting a customer’s time in the field.
  • Get the most from your stock – you cannot survive if you’re out of stock. You need to constantly balance demand to stock levels—and getting it wrong can be disastrous—leading to lost sales, too much cash tied up in excess inventory, and damaged customer relationships.
  • Don’t let legacy systems hold you back – do you face these questions: How many units shipped last month? What’s your most popular item? Who’s your best customer? Distributors still using disparate legacy systems like spreadsheets and homegrown databases often find that getting answers to these questions in an efficient and timely way can be extremely difficult.

Whether you are focused on optimizing inventory, streamlining purchasing, or managing multiple locations, you need to be diligent in your selection of a solution that meets the needs of your distribution organization.

Healthcare

Regulatory changes are a burdensome challenge for healthcare organizations. Amidst this increasing complexity is a call to streamline operations. Plus, it’s tough to monitor performance and keep financial processes running smoothly—especially across multiple locations. This is quite a dilemma.

ACI Consulting can help you navigate these regulatory issues while enabling you to grow by:

  • Automating your key finance and accounting processes, including procure-to-pay and the monthly close. Multi-location organizations can centralize payables and eliminate manual processes for payments and intercompany accounting.
  • Helping you save time, improve accuracy, and accommodate further growth without adding staff.
  • Increasing the speed and agility of your organization through the ability to create consolidated financial statements or summary rollup reports at any time, not just month-end. Plus, you can quickly adjust strategies and operations to respond to performance trends.

Get the visibility you need to make better decisions and improve operational and financial performance of your healthcare organization.

Service Companies

For Services firms it’s crucial to keep track of projects and project budgets. However, change seems to be a constant and how well you respond and adapt to change can determine project success and profitability. Project success requires correct estimations to be completed on time while meeting customer requirements.

ACI Consulting can help with an information technology infrastructure that allows your people to share data, work together, and make effective decisions.

In a services company, cloud-based accounting software can help you ensure profitable operations and improve customer satisfaction. Whether it’s IT services, consulting, marketing, advertising, HR services, staffing/recruiting, research, engineering, or other specialized discipline, there are solutions that:

  • Provide actionable business intelligence tools, available immediately, so key individuals can make critical business decisions to run a smarter, more profitable service organization.
  • Relieve the pain of manual processes and patching together countless Microsoft Excel spreadsheets or QuickBooks instances.
  • Allow data to flow seamlessly across your business in unified workflows that you can easily customize to your unique business need – and manage projects and profitability.
  • Track project costs, expedite time-and-expense processes, and accelerate project billing.

And, as professional services organizations grow, new complexities of multi-entity management and global consolidation become extremely challenging. ACI can help you navigate that as well.
