what OUR CLIENTS say

"Through Advantage we have increased our turnover by 30% and profit to a greater degree than we could have hoped for. We now know the value of working on the business as well as working in it.”
Josephine Smith
"With Advantage's assistance over a two year period we did a total management restructure. The company now runs much smoother with a major turn-around in production issues showing a positive effect on the bottom line
Peter Medforth
Through the business mentoring system Advantage provided, we developed a management focus filtering through to the up-grading of all systems including accounting. We have been able to focus significantly on internal and external growth.

More testimonials
"We've been working with Advantage for two and a half years now. In that time, with their help, we have seen our turnover doubled, a new division of the company was formed and we have just won the Lewisham Award for Excellence as the Outstanding Caterer of the Year. Working with Advantage Business has given us the confidence to grow the company and develop in a controlled and manageable manner. Our Advisor is like a board member to us, a much valued part of running the business effectively"

Jamie Miller
Mint Kitchen Ltd

"Advantage orchestrated regular documented meetings with agendas which created a situation where issues were brought to the surface, discussed, tasks delegated and results monitored. Without this new structure being strictly enforced there was never enough time or the format to encourage and develop the ideas that already existed within the company. Because of the changes, we are now able to spend more time in planning and developing those areas of the business that better utilise its strengths"

Neville Sturmfels
Sansom Contract Services Ltd

"I was working hard as I always do at that time, but I was totally disorganized and had very little idea of how my business was performing. In a very short period my Advantage coach whom I met on a weekly basis at first, helped me put structure and systems into place to plan my work much better. I am very happy to continue being coached by Advantage Business and recommend their services to any business that wants to expand and grow in a more structured way"

Mark Baker
Garden Maintenance Professional Services Ltd

"Advantage Business was invited to assist me with planning and managing the successful integration of our new branch into a soundly planned regional strategy.  I was surprised how painless the process has been with our adviser John Denize. The growth planning strategy is working in well, and the field staff now work more autonomously. The main focus with growth planning for Total Irrigation is the creation of sound and realistic marketing expectations, implementation of management systems backed by key performance indicators. These help keep me in front of clients rather than the office computer”             

Ian Cooper
Total Irrigation

"With Advantage's help we developed a visual business overview that the whole team was able to buy into, helping to provide focus and keeping us all on track. We have made huge improvements in systems resulting in better synergy and much less stress! Turnover and profits have increased, we are building on priorities with our 'to do' lists and generally our work is more enjoyable. Advantage provides us with an external point of view as well as being a sounding board to bounce ideas off.  Formulating our invaluable strategic business overview is allowing us to compete in the fast lane"                                                                                                      

Graeme Ross
Net-X IT

"Advantage gave us the support to focus the business and compare ourselves to others in the industry while reviewing and expanding our product range, improving our contracts and adding staff.  Providing a sounding board, highlighting the positives and negatives and sorting out the important issues from those which can easily distract from the "big picture", our Business Advisor has been assisting to build a successful, stable and secure company structure”

Alex Valentine
Allco Agencies Ltd

"We started working with Advantage Business late in 2006.  In that time, our Advisor has been instrumental in assisting with systems, accounting and general business advice and helped turn around the company which is now in profit for the first time in twenty years.  With the help of our Business Advisor we have been successful in increasing the business and contacts, with the business now in a much healthier state better equipped possibly to last a few more generations”

Gerald Loesch
Loesch Furniture

"Advantage Business (Tauranga) has been working with Autoworld since November 2006.  Our Business Advisor is really great, an excellent teacher - getting us to do things we knew we had to do and making us follow them up.  Our Advisor has helped tidy up the systems, assisted with problem solving and attracted more business through the "new look" and flyer direct marketing drops.  Apart from the focus and success in marketing, we are now able to plan to go away on a real family holiday for the first time in three years knowing the new systems in place will allow us to have a well deserved break” 

Grant & Philippa Robertson
Autoworld Papamoa

"Two years ago we started working with Advantage Business and we still welcome the support of their business advisors. During these two years we have built a new, much larger factory, introduced a rigorous quality control system, re-branded our company and have proudly integrated 3 of my children successfully in key roles of the business. This year I was able to enjoy 4 weeks overseas holidays and next year I’ll be away for 3 months and confident the customers are well looked after”

              Bob DeLacey
George Grant Engineering Ltd

"After seeking information from several comparable businesses, we sought the expert advice of Advantage Business who we found to be very professional, with expertise in many areas. Advantage has always been available when required and  consistently comes back with a solution to any problems we have discussed with them. Our Association has been able to work through various issues and now has established a sound business core due to our relationship with Advantage. I personally recommend them highly for any prospective client"
