    We are backed by 30 years of successful Consulting experience improving competitiveness for industrial and services Firms.

We are experts and we offer comprehensive services of Consulting, Training and Computer Solutions in the following activities:

  • Competitiveness improvement (productivity, quality and flexibility).
  • Production costs reduction.
  • Increase of the knowledge and skills of our Customers’ staff.
  • Implementation of ItemsaSoft PROCESOS®, our own specific (integrated) production management software (processes, methods and time, required resources and information for use of Engineering and Workshops).
    We improve the competitiveness of our Customers with a substantial cost reduction of their key business processes (production, logistics, maintenance…):
  • Without untimely and expensive investments.
  • Optimizing the use of the available resources at every moment (manpower, machinery and equipment and inventories).
  • Providing a new and higher value to activities (specially, production activities).
    We help our Customers to timely achieve their strategic goals, with the development and effective implementation of a realistic and customized Action Plan.

We previously diagnose the Customer’s objective starting situation, analyzing the efficiency of the industrial equipment and the manpower performance, and assessing the potential of the economies detected, which can be obtained with the effective implementation of an Integral Improvement Project, profitable and suited to the present technological, economic, social and labour situation of the company.  

We design, develop and implement, with optimum results, Integral Improvement Projects:

  • Suited to the specific needs of each Customer.
  • Profitable (the results of their implementation, as well as their cost –which is usually recovered in less than 6 months- are previously known by the Customer).
  • Without deterioration of the good working climate.
    Our work methodologies and techniques have a reliable quality and are updated and suitable for any kind of company.

We offer our Customers a personalized and excellent service.
We are expert in managing the change of mentality, attitudes and behaviour in the organization and development of work, as well as in optimizing resources, adding value and achieving the budgeted objectives.

We are committed to the results, so that the foreseen targets (specific and assessed)  are reached or exceeded and, depending on the kind of project, we offer the customer a payment method based on a reduced fixed cost and a variable amount, linked to the achievement of the goals.

We always work closely alongside our Customers until they reach the agreed results.

We obtain short-term and tangible results, continuously keeping and improving them, without any need for being constantly present at the Customer’s facilities. For this reason, we promote the desired change from the inside, so that the Customer’s personnel can always feel and be able to maintain the improvements achieved and the whole organization –from top to bottom- feel committed to a dynamics of excellence and continuous improvement.
Most of our Customers are precisely our Customers because they already know us and repeat, or because one of them has recommended us.
