Consulture Levels Playing Field For Small and Mid-Size Businesses
Press release from the issuing company
DALLAS - August 28, 2002 -- Small and mid-sized organizations now have access to customized technology solutions that previously would have been unaffordable thanks to a new Dallas-based consulting and development firm, Consulture, LLC.
Created by Dallas entrepreneurs Philip Wentworth and Michael Scott, Consulture will partner with small and mid-sized organizations to develop technology solutions designed to address specific needs.
"The digital age has brought about a confusing mix of technologies, applications and services," said Wentworth, President and CEO. "And for companies that don't have the resources to hire large in-house IT staffs, it can often seem like an overwhelming obstacle to overcome. Our goal is to help companies level the technology playing field, no matter their size."
"This arrangement allows us to study a company's core business functions, market and industry, then recommend sensible, low cost technology and business alternatives that will have a real impact on the bottom line," adds Scott, executive vice president and CTO.
For example, Consulture recently teamed with a Dallas printer to create a Web-enabled application that makes it easy for the printer's corporate clients to order branded supplies, marketing materials and other collateral right from their desktop. In addition, the customer will be able to track the status of the print order online. The product, named printCure, will be marketed to other businesses that want to:
* Automate print-buying processes for greater efficiency
* Have 24/7 online access, anywhere in the world
* Eliminate maverick buying from non-approved vendors
* Use a self-service interface custom-branded to their Internet site
* Save time, cut costs and optimize efficiencies
* Gain a competitive edge and almost immediate R.O.I.
Unlike consultancies that only offer recommendations, Consulture has the resources to produce the solutions as well as the support staff to ensure seamless integration into the business practices.
"We take consulting to the next level," says Wentworth. "We know from experience that solutions become problems if they are not utilized, so we make sure that we have a solution that fits the need, and then we work with the client to ensure that it is used. We will spend as much time with each client after the implementation period as we did during the development and construction phase."
"This is a win-win solution in the truest sense of the phrase," said Wentworth. "We enable a business to engage in cost effective, more efficient business processes by developing, constructing and implementing low cost, best of breed technology and business solutions."
