Abderry Equine Services

Before we started working together, I was very enthusiastic but not quite sure how to get the company up to the next level of profitability and I certainly had no idea how to get there

Now, we have a new team, a vision, a defined culture, and the tools available to really grow the business. We have had significant improvements in most areas of our business with a revenue increase of 23%. In addition, I am finally using my time more productively, and the team is more focused!

John and Dale Gamble more than double their profits in the construction trade and make more space at home

The attention on both sales and operating systems have produced some significant results for this couple while working with Jerome. Firstly, due to the CRM system with the better monitoring and measuring of the sales pipeline, more leads were followed-up and converted into sales. This gave an increase in revenue of 33% over the previous year. Gross profit was up 28%. 

Secondly, the admin systems and operational management improvements we implemented made a massive difference to the business. These significantly lowered the operational costs so that nett profit rose 241%.

What it means for your business
While most businesses focus on growing their sales, few businesses realise how expensive and inefficient their operations are. In this business, we can see that a focus on sales produced a nice 33% increase in revenue but the time and effort we placed on the operations paid off with a more than doubling of nett profit. For this couple looking forward to their retirement, that is hugely important as the sale value of their business is based on a multiple of the profits. They can now look forward to a much more enjoyable and profitable retirement.

Height Access Technology

A company with strong bones and growth with right team is making traction in all business activities.

Owner Adrian van den Bemd first took on the services of Rise Advisory mid 2010 with the full intention around Sales growth by focusing profit margins by reviewing all quoted work through back costing. This had a purpose to work out the gross profit for new sales team member which become a successful recruitment process with the help of Rise Advisory’s experience. Then the focus become to move into a bigger building for similar cost (and this worked well for changing for product being stored for clients). Recruitment of more production team with the right attitude and skill became apparent and now implementing a workflow system

Todd Farrow, Director - NeoBuild

A few years I was subcontracting labour only with a small team

Together with Jerome we branded the company with our uniqueness and started systemizing and marketing towards our own contracts. We then started to attract team through different sources and focused on growth through gross profit and bottom line while streamlining our job management program. We have now doubled our turnover with a healthy bottom line and continue to increase our pipeline with ideal customers and the right fit for our team. Todd Farrow, Director - NeoBuild

PlumBuilt Plumbing Services

Husband and wife team, with three children, working in the plumbing industry have just recorded their most successful year ever.

Only two years after starting to work with Jerome, their business is completely different.  Working with Jerome has enabled them to radically improve their business and their lifestyle by employing more qualified plumbers allowing the husband to get off the tools so he could manage the business.  This resulted in the 2016 turnover being more than double their previous year taking it over $3 million.
