At Ariolix, we have been supporting and helping entrepreneurs since 2009, and it has been quite a trip.
Our goal and our mission centered the company around the quest to find the best way to support entrepreneurs.
In 2009, Ariolix was purely a consulting company, and I looked for ways to help our customers with the best counsel, advice and the best tools we could find (see The problem with incentive, Why do we need outside consultants ?, How to efficiently use QR Codes ?, The first rule of managing your emails)
This period brought mixed results, and today I think I understand why.
As an entrepreneur, you have a vision, an understanding of your market that no consultant could bring you.
That’s why it’s so difficult to bring the right level of help. A consultant needs to have an outsider view of your business and also a very good understanding of your field to bring you the most valuable advice.
Another point that makes the help of a consultant tricky, is the fact that not all advice are practical, feasible in your particular situation, or worse : not in phase with your philosophy or your vision of the business.
This doesn’t mean that consultants can’t help your business; it simply means that sometimes the entrepreneur needs more than advice and counsel. To better support entrepreneurship sometimes we need a more “hands on” approach.
In order to solve these problems, we have redefined our service and we have build a team that is able to put into practice the vision that you have of your business.
Our motto: “from venture to success” is more in line with this philosophy, and we will put the effort and provide the resources to put in place best practices and to deliver the results you need to bring your vision to fruition.
Our services range from operation management (we are actively involved in your day-to-day operations), business support (we provide the expertise or specificity you need) to business growth (we help you develop your sales).
By providing support to the structure of the company we are able to obtain improvements for the entire business.
For example, we started to provide administrative support services to one of our customer in january 2015, by providing support, structure and best practices in the administrative department, and thus allowing the entrepreneur to focus and business development and production. On the first four month of the year the global results on the sales are clear, and the trend is promising for the rest of the year 🙂
The main objective with our different services is to provide the tools, processes and structure to allow your company to grow faster and stronger.
Our business model and services will certainly need some tweak and tuneup in the future, but we strongly believe our offer is more in line with the current needs of the entrepreneurs we meet every day.
So contact us to discuss how we can refine our services to provide your company with the support you need to bring your venture to the next level : success !
