Client Testimonial

We Put Goals Once Thought Un-Attainable in Our Rear View Mirror

“We waited to start until things “calmed down”. If I had known how easy this would be on our organization, and how quickly we would see results, we would have started months ago.

We put goals once thought unattainable in our rear view mirror and made process-driven thinking and improvement the “way of doing business” here. We’ve achieved our highest productivity ever, better identification of customer requirements, increased customer satisfaction, improved team dynamics…and ongoing returns that are multiples of our investment.”

Don Ortiz, former General Manager, Promax Automotive

Organization-wide system produces step-level improvement

“We were already a successful and profitable company. Working hands-on with our people in every area of our operations at every location, 4aBetterBusiness created an organization-wide system that has given us step-level improvements in our ability to reduce our core operating costs and improve productivity. In months we identified and achieved improvements we might not have in years using internal resources.”

– John Anton, former Division Manager, Independence Tube
