“If we want things to stay as they are, things will have to change.”
Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa
If processes don't operate smoothly and goals cannot be met anymore, some things have to be changed. What needs to be done to run production efficiently again? Is purchasing just ordening or also acting strategically? Sales is often communcating with customers because of existing problems. Wouldn't it be better if they were selling instead of soothing angry customers? Digital transformation is required. Where to start? What to do? This is not an IT-issue, this concerns the whole company and is a strategic decission. It is a on-going change-process and is changing organisational behaviour as well as processes and business-models. inteRIm is specialised on this kind of change-processes.
Different countries, different cultures, different behaviours, different businesses, different legal limits. Nevertheless, also a lot of common items and facts.

Dimminent financial embarrassments, missing new orders and the loss of key accounts, require quick and appropriate action. Often there is an internal lack of knowhow and expertise for handling such specific situations. Nevertheless rapid action within the limits of the law is needed. If it is needed to liquidise a (part of the) company, you should know what needs to be done. Work regulations of concerning branches have to be respected and the time-limits must be met. inteRIm will reconcile and balance the interests of the ordering party as well as the concerns and needs of the existing staff. This requires empathy as well as an objective approach – a balance-act we are use to manage. What to do if the bank is at your doorstep?

We know how to run the business with poor liquidity and which legal limits are concerned. Together with you, we develop a measurement-plan and professionally guide you through this change process.
