Enterprise Transformation Underwritten by Technology
The pace of business transformation is accelerating as technology has become a catalyst for new business models and new ways of providing solutions and services to customers. Corporate executives face a mix of competitive pressures, quickly changing customer expectations and digital disruption and are recognizing that help is needed from experts who are as business savvy as they are technically capable.
Cimphoni’s consultants bring a track record of success in both business and IT leadership roles. They recognize that the integration of business and IT is no longer optional as technology underpins much of what makes business competitive today. Cimphoni has the experience and credibility to serve as a unifying voice between these two groups. Our unique combination of business expertise and technical know-how enables us to consistently deliver truly transformational business outcomes.
Every business brings its own unique set of competencies and capabilities that enable it to compete effectively. Each company has its own context – that is to say its own strengths and weaknesses in the market. Cimphoni recognizes there is no “cookie cutter” approach to transforming businesses using digital technologies. Therefore, Cimphoni seeks to find the most relevant technology and business solutions that will distinguish companies from their competitors and create a compelling value proposition for customers.
Digital transformation today is really about harnessing the value of data. Using data and the insights gained from it to improve business performance, create new products and services, change operating models and stay close to evolving customer trends is the difference between winning and losing in today’s marketplace.

Our Strategic Consulting Delivery Model
M&A Crisis Management and Employee Experience RedesignWhen a large insurance and travel organization acquired 40+ independent agencies and transitioned them to corporate process and systems, something went terribly wrong. A steep revenue decline and terrible employee morale revealed a host of business processes and technology issues in need of an overhaul. Cimphoni stabilized and restored revenue generation across the agencies by creating standardized operational processes and technology footprints for all newly acquired agencies, implementing systems integrations to improve workflows for employees, establishing clear corporate communication protocols and support systems, and stabilizing infrastructure to allow future scalability. To reach this point, we mapped systems and processes across 160+ independent insurance agencies, isolating efficiencies and opportunities for standardization. The results included reducing employee effort and overall process flow by 30%. Tags: critical initiative leadership, digital transformation, employee experience redesign, M&A crisis management
Centralized Telephony Improves Post-Merger Customer Experience
When a large consumer travel association merged, the organization discovered it had five disparate telephony platforms spanning multiple vendors four overlapping dial plans requiring new extensions for every employee and four distinct workforce optimization (WFO) vendors with a variety of operational processes. Cimphoni standardized and centralized telephony, workforce optimization and business processes for the organization’s contact centers and 140+ retail locations in 10 months, well ahead of the 18-24 month predictions. The new unified capabilities drove nearly $1 million in staffing efficiencies, and the unified platform improved the overall customer experience.Tags: customer experience, post-merger integration, strategic consulting
