Key Performance Indicator Analysis: The statistical analysis of KPI’s can be very helpful however an alarmly few companies either keep measurable metrics for performance or the managers who produce the KPI’s go uncheck relative to the validity of the data. On top of this very few KPI’s have context and often miss key metrics that are not being tracked. By being on the floor asking the right questions often the true value adds are not missed.
The old adage “pay yourself first” holds true but only to an extent. Particularly while growing quickly or in capital intensive industries cash flow control is often the crippling aspect of a small to medium size business. We target optimized secured revenue to allow for financing while negotiating extended supplier terms or timely payment discounts to increase margins and cash positions.
We work with a number of programmers and university departments to assist with the design, construction and implementation of the custom digital platforms because every company does things a little different. This includes ERP’s, CRM’s, Configurators, Inventory control system’s, remote automated scheduling, statistical/actuarial systems, accounting systems or accounting integration and real time dashboard management systems. We also ensure “buy in” of your staff and customize the system to meet the staff’s individual requirements. Your systems should adapt to the company and be able to evolve as the company grows.
Why did Steve Jobs always where a black turtle neck with Jeans? Why does Barack Obama wear only blue and grey suits? According to many leading experts it is because conscious thought, and will power as a result, are an exhaustible resource meaning a typical manager, owner and CEO is often exhausted just from daily practices.
At Parametric Homes Consulting, almost every process in any business can we converted into a mathematical algorithm, process/procedure or long term initiative to handle the majority of daily business. Parametric means one of a set of factors that define a system and determine its behavior.
All great businesses are systems with hundreds of variables and factors dynamically affecting decision making daily. If the system is built well and made to suit the niche then this conscious drain on the executive team is diminished giving your most important staff the time and ability to look forward and prepare for growth.
We separate ourselves through our proprietary methodologies and actually following through with the implementation of the strategies.
Bringing in a traditional consulting team to suggest ways in which a company can improve is helpful however the model has two major short comings: Your employees and management.
It is not uncommon for individuals to perceive a consultant as a threat who comes in for short periods of time that the consultants actually spends working with the staff, minimizing the likelihood of buy in to the new practices, and the excessive fees from these firms make the classic methodologies in effective for small to medium sized businesses.
Who does Parametric Homes work for?
We work for you. The second a meeting is set or an email is sent to us with confidential information we respect confidentiality and know it belongs to you. We are happy to sign confidentiality agreements whenever required. We will be held accountable for our performance and deliverables in every way. The primary discussion we have with clients is about making sure their employees and systems are held accountable to them. We practice what we preach.
What will it cost me?
Typically we work on a contract basis but we usually charge out our consultants at $95.00 per hour plus GST. To give you an idea of relative value, having a consultant work on a key contract with you for six hours ensuring the contract represents what you want is essential especially this is because the structure is to ensure the common what if questions are considered. We still recommend a lawyer but having a well thought out structure before going to a lawyer is key when that quality legal counsel typically charges between $400 and $600 per hour. On top of this many accountants and lawyers, an essential tool, are not focused on the profitability of the deal and more so on the legal language aspect.
Do you use subcontractors?
We pride ourselves on deliverables of the highest quality. As a result, we frequently use a network of subcontractors with specialized skills who also have ongoing confidentially agreements with us. They usually bill out between $30 - $100 per hour depending on the individual’s skill set. This includes heavy equipment experts, g code programmers, network system administrators, hardware technicians, the University of Victoria’s Statistics department and many other skill sets.

We add value where you want it. We can recommend other areas where we could add value but we make sure that the client gets exactly what they want by defining a clear scope of work.

No. All our services, servers and staff are on Canadian Soil. This is important because of the Patriot Act and several other similar pieces of legistlation have caused FICOM (the regulatory body for the insurance industry, real estate industry, mortgage industry as well as several other) wants to keep essential financial services confidential and encrypted in Canada.

Most small projects will take less than a month however for clients that desire more of a hands on approach, we also have contracts available to span multiple years.
