Assess Your Potential: Oval with Magnifying glass and question mark

Good intentions are not enough. Deepen Customer Knowledge        Case Studies:    Corporate/Manufacturing     Nonprofit

Unless you understand your customers, their basic needs as well as what will delight them, you won't know your potential nor be able to achieve excellence. Understanding the Voice of the Customer (VOC) and the customer experience extends far beyond what the customer says. Through a broad array of inquiry and analysis techniques, the Sutton Team understands both the current and emerging operating environment of you and your end customers.

  • We consider drivers like:
    • Existing and potential technologies
    • Trends in the economy, legislation, and regulations
    • Customer motivations and preferences
  • We identify and develop business opportunities to satisfy the customer’s interests.

Develop Products & Services - Oval with image of product funnel

       Case Studies:    Corporate/Manufacturing     Nonprofit

With limited resources and finances, organizations need to pick their battles. It is a waste of time, money, and effort to develop a product/service if a customer will not buy it or it does not support your business goals. The Sutton team specializes in taking a knowledge-driven, value-added approach from concept to launch.

We break our work into short increments to create usable deliverables regularly throughout the development cycle. Through diligent market assessment and business case development, we can help you from inception to successful launch of physical products as well as knowledge-based, service products and processes:

  • Knowledge Products
      For many organizations, the biggest challenge they face is harnessing and disseminating their knowledge. Sutton specializes in helping you assemble your intellectual assets and publish them in a format that maximizes its usefulness and accessibility.
  • Technology Platforms
      Many jump right to a technology before understanding what you really need, wasting valuable money and effort. Avoid the solution trap! To drive successful technology initiatives, we take the time up front to understand your technology strategies and requirements and prioritize your requirements to support sound business value and trade-off decisions.
  • Service Products
      Many lose revenue by not understanding the breadth of opportunities to serve your customers and failing to keep their constituents engaged. We help you understand what your customers value, then expand or enhance their experience to address their priorities.
