San Francisco Chronicle Reported Software Developer Reduced Costs by Millions with Pinnacle Strategies

(OPENPRESS) The San Francisco Chronicle reported last week that a client of Pinnacle Strategies (www.pinnacle-strategies.com) gained $6 million in cost savings as a result of implementing Pinnacle's Rapid Analysis Bottleneck Improvement Team (RABIT) process. At the same time, the client increased software production throughput by 960%.
Mark Woeppel, President and CEO of Pinnacle Strategies explained, "Our client wasn't as successful as they could be because their efforts were constantly being sidetracked by interruptions, delays, and lack of consistent focus. We were able to turn things around very quickly for this client by injecting some fresh thinking, organizing workflow, and setting the right focus for the team."

The customer, headquartered in Europe, had been recognized for having the world's best systems; however, their software lagged in quality and esteem. Pinnacle's challenge was to help the client elevate its quality so both products were at comparable "best in world" levels.

Pinnacle rapidly delivered the required results by helping the client:
• Master and monitor the workflow using a Visual Project Management System
• Prioritize the team's work using a simple prioritization system
• Establish a single point of contact for field engineers
• Create a FAQ to reduce interruptions

As a result, the client's backlog of software modifications dropped by 80% in just two months; warranty claims plummeted by nearly 58%, cutting warranty costs more than $6 million. As an added bonus, morale improved, too. One Department Supervisor noted, "The efficient daily five to ten minute meeting replaced the totally inefficient two to three hour weekly staff meeting."
