The heart of everything we do is business process improvement.
MFR Consultants provides a team of senior consulting professionals with relevant industry, process and project management experience, to review and assess your current operations. We provide independent and objective assessments of the current environment, compare against industry standards as well as best practices, and offer and help you prioritize specific recommendations to improve operational efficiency and effectiveness.
Using project management methodologies, tools and communication strategies executed by certified Project Management Professionals (PMP) and Certified Associates in Project Management (CAPM), MFR Consultants works closely with clients to understand, assess and solve their challenges in alignment with their business strategy, goals and objectives.
The resulting process documentation can be easily incorporated as business requirements into an RFP, a software package evaluation and selection process, or agile or other software development methodologies.
Designing effective and efficient processes that work for your employees and customers is just the beginning of the business process journey. MFR can help you continuously monitor your processes against your performance goals to identify what is working well, and areas in which there are opportunities for further refinement or automation to further optimize results.
Having clear, concise, accurate and up-to-date documentation for employees and customers can enhance operational success. We know that finding the time and energy to document in the midst of daily responsibilities is difficult if not impossible. Let MFR’s experienced business analyst team develop or update user-friendly documentation that can support auditability, internal cross-training and knowledge transfer, and enhance your customers’ experience.
Procuring a new IT system is a strategic investment. However, often the full potential for cost-savings, efficiency and process optimization is not realized in the process because of lack of alignment of the selected system with organizational needs, goals and priorities. Starting from a business process improvement lens, MFR leads organizations through a rigorous requirements gathering process to establish a framework for evaluating alternatives. We also assist with RFP development, proposal evaluation, and system selection. While we maintain strong working relationships with software vendors and system integrators, MFR is not a software vendor; we offer independence and objectivity across all of our service offerings.
Whether you are implementing a new IT system, merging departments, automating a process, or starting up a new venture, developing a road map for the change including assessing organizational readiness, planning communications, developing training, and responding to ongoing feedback from stakeholders is critical. MFR can help you manage the challenges and seize the opportunities of change.
Whether a quick compliance check-up or on-going monitoring services, our compliance monitoring and support services help governmental and other regulated entities meet their compliance objectives with both discipline and agility.
Front-end pre-award risk assessment and post-award monitoring is critical to effective oversight of grant funding for both grant-making entities and those passing federal or state funds through to sub-recipients. MFR supports all aspects of the grant life-cycle, from pre-award to closeout, to help grantors and prime awardees effectively manage compliance risk and maintain program effectiveness.
We know that audits can be stressful. MFR works to reduce the audit burden by working alongside your team to prepare for upcoming audits, provide support throughout the audit process, and assist with audit finding responses and resolution.
With in-house CPA and CGFM professionals, MFR provides implementation support for new and evolving accounting standards such as revenue recognition and leasing that require detailed analysis and review.
