"KMC delivered a different consulting experience. Their team became an extension of our sales & marketing organization. Through a series of analyses, interviews and working sessions, KMC helped us develop our own recommendations and create action plans that were implementable and measurable. We could clearly identify the ROI of the project."

A noted kitchen and bath company needed to develop deeper insight into profitability by customer and by product in a highly complex distribution and value chain business to improve responsiveness to customer requirements, and effectiveness of the Sales and Marketing teams.

The KMC team worked with the organization's leadership team to quantify the profitability and potential value of each customer and segment type.
