International and Legal
When a client was expanding internationally, they needed appropriate and local legal entities. Patina helped develop and implement a strategy to address the complex legal requirements in each country.
After taking on new funding, our client realized that the new financial requirements would tax their existing finance team. They called on Patina's resources with deep finance experience, including Sarbanes Oxley, to provide advice and hands-on support to augment the current team.
Changing sales strategy led to a shift from a business-to-consumer acquisition model to a business-to-business focus. Patina assisted in building and implementing new sales strategies to address the changing target market.
As one client's products evolved from software and services to include appliance solutions, they realized that new skill sets were required. They leaned on Patina to provide expertise and resources to drive strategy, and also help build and train new teams and leaders.
Following a series of acquisitions, operations and call centers were no longer optimally distributed, organized or maintained. Patina's professionals worked to develop and implement operational efficiencies.
A project to consolidate manufacturing facilities required identification and implementation of a warehouse management system to interface with ERP and financial systems. Patina provided expertise in utilizing state-of-the-art methodologies.
Explosive growth is a great problem to have, and in one client's case, it required build-out of the internal IT organization. Patina's experience helped the client to develop and document a prioritized, synchronized roadmap detailing short-term and long-term goals and initiatives that could be implemented by internal teams.
