  1. Still the Best Kept Secret in Kansas City…

    We posted this several years ago and get reminded often from our clients and prospects that it is “spot on” with our message. This means it comes both from our experiences and our client feedback gathered over time – and you can check our work on that!

    Here is THE best kept secret in Kansas City for improving and growing your business. Core Catalysts is a management consulting company that has some of the best-handpicked minds in town.

    We have experiences across multiple industries and multiple disciplines. We are supported by tools and templates that are brought to bear and accelerate solutions that clients need. We are focused on making our clients successful. Making clients successful can take many forms, including:

    • Modernizing a major set of applications that are aged and costly to support – reducing “technology debt” and improving support for the end customers that use these applications at a price point well below other major consulting firms.
    • Process improvement of a back-office process that streamlines the Accounts Payable efforts, Invoicing accuracy, or Inventory Management to name just a few.
    • Program and project management of key business initiatives, like implementing a new core banking system in record time that enables the acquisition of more clients.
    • Providing some stability in leadership gaps on a flexible basis so that the company can recover from key issues in its staffing – objective, aggressive change leadership for significant business growth.
    • Assisting with the fast and accurate acquisitions of multiple business entities and then driving an integration plan that results in overall business value increases.
    • Facilitating the development of strategic plans that have clear executive buy in, actions, responsibilities, and metrics.
    • Assessment and identification of business issues that may not be apparent to the existing leadership teams; a fresh set of skilled eyes that can spot issues with low gross margins, sales effectiveness, branding issues, gaps between strategy and execution plans to name a few.
    • Development of clear action and implementation plans that can be used by the client’s existing team while training them along the way. Put simply, we teach our clients how to fish.

    So why is Core Catalysts the best kept secret? For several reasons: Our advertising and marketing budget is small (we keep our overhead rates low). We are humble mid-westerners not used to bragging to everyone about our successes, and many companies may think they can’t afford us, not knowing that paybacks on our services are typically astronomical. As a sales message, that’s understandably hard to believe – but we have decades’ worth of experience and client testimony to prove it!

    So give us a try, and more importantly, ask our clients to give you a sense of reality and comfort. We have many client success stories, ranging from the $50M clients to the multi-$Bs clients across multiple industries.
