April 2009 Newsletter

When the going gets tough, the tough get going!

Get moving, motivated and geared up to MAKE MONEY!!

Out and about in the industry I see a change starting to happen.

Most of the businesses I called into aren’t sitting around pointing the finger at the slow economy & resting on their laurels.

Rather they are out and about winning business, looking at ways they can increase sales and working on new marketing strategies to win business they haven’t normally won.

I see smaller businesses clawing, scratching and biting at the heels of the bigger businesses.

They are putting tools and systems in place so they can produce product quickly and efficiently, allowing them to be competitive on price.

In this newsletter we have success stories on businesses of all sizes and doing different types of work. Planit has worked with hundreds of business in helping them to identify bottlenecks & making changes, helping them to work towards every business owners goal, to make money.

2009 will be a year of “hard yakka”. But maybe Planit can work with you in changing existing processes which will make your business & the processes in it work easier and more efficiently.

We have specialists covering every part of the business so if you need help or are open to someone thinking outside the box, then give us a call.
