Q: Could you provide us with a brief introduction and overview of your role?
My name’s Joe Benevides. I am the Chief Operating Officer of Plus Relocation Services based here in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Q: What challenges did you hope COPC Inc. could help your organization overcome?
We’ve always had great service results, and our client challenged us to get that to be even better and more consistent and really understand in more detail why we’re successful and what parts of our process could stand to be improved. So having identified that and having talked to COPC, we realized that the structure and the methodologies that they could bring to us would certainly help us accomplish that of taking a deeper dive into what makes us successful, what areas we can improve on as far as efficiencies, process enhancements, and how we can better manage the component parts of our process, not just the overall process.
Q: What was one of the most impactful results from your experience with COPC Inc.?
Their number one recommendation, or finding, in the review was that there were many efficiencies to be had in the process. And so, we’ve established a business process improvement initiative inside the organization. As a result, just through the first half of this year, we have already realized, well upon an annualized basis, well over $300,000 worth of savings in time and material through our processes.
