About Us

Get to know who we are

All too often independent business owners focus on profit rather than creating value for their customers. Make no mistake, Benamoz Entrepreneur Solutionz is all about maintaining your current customer base while growing new opportunities. Stabilizing first allows new business to profitably reflect in your bottom line. After all, why would you want to market your problems?
Our approach is to spend upfront planning time on true problem identification which creates an onsite “roadmap”.
A pre-onsite online employee assessment survey which team members can complete anonymously allows for employee perspective and input while uncovering friction points and where resistance to positive changes may lie.
Thereafter, our carefully selected team lands onsite to engage the owners, the management team and each and every team member while introducing LEAN tools to address chronic problems. Your team becomes part of the solution and not the problem. Success breeds success and sustained gains going forward. Post- onsite follow up and mentoring has a much different look and feel than traditional coaching.  Throughout the process we gain first-hand familiarity with you, your team members, demographics, business layout and your specific issues.
Have your ever been to a conference and returned with energy and excitement only to have it drained from you by a team that looks at you with blank stares?  Our clients have frequently related the onsite process to bringing a conference TO them.  By engaging directly with team members at your workplace, employees will understand your vision and feel the same excitement. This helps expedite transformation and sustained improvements.
