Small and Mid-Market Services

For established companies it’s all about growth, innovation, quality and efficiency.  

Signing more deals.  Improving client alignment.  Adding new products, services and features.  Additional sales channels.  Better messaging.  Better branding.  Cost containment.  And continuously improving quality and customer value to keep product sales up and churn down.  All of these functions are critical to steady and continued business growth and stability.

Fortunately, small and mid-sized companies generally have structure and culture in place to maintain existing product and service operations.  Unfortunately, these teams are oftentimes hired and assembled to fulfill specific purposes related to keeping day-to-day operations up and running.  Growth and cost containment initiatives are sometimes an afterthought…

Our consultants can help your organization assess current state and recommend solutions focused on revenue growth, quality improvements and cost saving initiatives.  Whether the need is strategic or tactical, they will adapt to your business environment and assist your teams with the support needed to move your business initiatives forward.

Large Enterprise Value Adds

For enterprises, everything is scaled up and quality, deep expertise, and brand reputation are key attributes.

Global topologies, highly available systems, geographic redundancy, service redundancy, multi-vendor solutions, dynamic error correction, clustered services and fault tolerance are some of the architecture considerations Avemac consultants encounter when working with enterprise organizations on technical implementations.  Not to mention the business implications of intercountry and regional rules and regulations.

Multi-level change control, dedicated quality assurance and business analysis teams, formal user acceptance testing and technical operations processes are also requirements to be considered, expected and understood when working with project delivery in large organizations.

Product development and business management also becomes very stratified with top-level executives working at a macro, industry level and business unit managers focused on specific markets and target demographics.  These additional layers of hierarchy require knowledge and experience to successfully navigate.

Same Value Adds - Only Bigger

The values Avemac Consulting provides for large, enterprise organizations are the same as the services and values provided to startups and small/mid-sized companies, only much bigger in scope, complexity and budget size.

Since enterprises typically have the means to support much heavier organizational structures, specialized departments and diverse teams, the Avemac consultant’s role within large organizations tends to become more focused on specific skills and experiences unique to the organization.

If your business needs focused advice regarding complex technology architectures, new product innovations or operational efficiencies, Avemac Consulting can help your company get to the next level of evolution.
