This large scale mining manufacturer was profitable, however a key department consistently performed below their quoted and budgeted margins. They engaged with our Consulting team to conduct analysis at a job-by-job level, slicing data by customer, job type, team, suppliers involved, etc. Findings were compared with their historical quote register data to uncover gaps in the quoting process and improve the achieved margins.

A local real estate agency had become comfortable in its practices and noticed that their market share was slipping during a Newcastle housing boom. They engaged with our Consulting team to benchmark their performance against the industry, and track Key Performance Indicators at both a whole of business level and an individual agent level. Our team was able to use an extensive database of real estate data from local businesses to provide more relevant information on the market based on Lambourne’s involvement with the industry in other departments.

This local food product manufacturer was working with Lambourne’s for regular advice meetings and KPI tracking on a quarterly basis. The reporting provided to the business was complex, based in excel and required several hours from senior staff to complete. Our Consulting team was able to transition this reporting to a new software platform, which included automation of inputs and calculations. This software package has materially reduced the hours required to produce reporting, allowing us to meet with the client monthly instead of quarterly, at no additional cost to the client.

After experiencing a period of significant growth and profitability, well ahead of planned timeframes, a skin care clinic identified that staff performance was a key driver of this success. They wanted to reward staff and help to ensure retention, so they engaged LP Consulting to analyse the profitability of the business and determine the appropriate level of profit-share as a regular reward for staff. We then devised a repeatable process for tracking and calculating staff bonuses using their existing clinic management systems.

An industrial engineering consultancy business undertakes large scale, highly skilled projects for tier one mining companies required a new job management software solution after their existing provider went into receivership. This created a short window of time to overhaul their processes before their existing software support ceased, so they engaged LP Consulting to provide recommendations and implementation support on the new job management software, including integrations with their quoting and accounting software. Seeing the benefits of our recommendations, the business owners also sought further engagement to provide ongoing financial support and supervision in the business.
