Provided a Fresh, Objective Perspective
"Birchwood helped us design a new
facility with more capacity than originally envisioned and a more
effective and flexible layout. They provided a fresh, objective
perspective that other companies would benefit from."
CFO & Vice President, Third Party Logistics Provider
Focused the Organization
"We didn’t have anyone on staff who had the time and expertise to do the detailed work of getting our new business line defined and off the ground. Birchwood focused the organization and weeded through all the changes needed to give us the potential to be highly successful with the new business line."
President, Consumer Product Manufacturer
Trained Our Supervisors to Make Further Improvements On Their Own
"Not only did Birchwood help us to improve productivity, but they also trained our supervisors to make further improvements on their own after the Birchwood engagement had concluded. We realized a return on investment on the project within six months after Birchwood helped us improve our processes."
CFO & Senior Vice-President, High-Volume Assembly and Distribution Services Provider

Birchwood brings solid strategic thinking skills and excellent customer service to each endeavor."

Improved Profitability; Better Strategic and Operational Direction
"Over several engagements with one of our specialty practices, Birchwood improved the profitability of the practice by over a quarter of a million dollars, increased patient satisfaction, streamlined the billing process while improving the documentation and coding, successfully integrated new providers into the practice and developed a plan for several new service offerings. In separate engagements, their leadership in developing governance structures in several practices resulted in those practices developing better strategic and operational direction and improved bottom-line results."

Keeping Folks on Task; Would Benefit from Further Interactions
"Birchwood was very helpful. I've been through several of these kinds of planning sessions and the pre-planning and interaction with the group was outstanding. Speaking for the group, Birchwood was excellent at keeping folks on task. Clearly, we have more work to do to make our organization as successful as it could be and to effectively use the plan we created with their help and guidance. In the future, we would benefit from further interactions with Birchwood."
