What is the AWS 3 x 1 approach?

3 areas of complete focus by one team:

  1. We initially assist our clients to create a detailed strategic plan to achieve growth.
  2. We then work with them to increase efficiencies in all cost areas in order    to maximise profitability.
  3. We assist them in gaining new clients and maximise returns from existing ones, this increases revenues into the business.

By undertaking these 3 steps, our ‘Quest’ clients significantly increase both turnover and profitability in their businesses, which in turn has a dramatic effect on the valuation of their business.

Every extra pound of net profit our clients achieve is potentially multiplied by 7 on the valuation of  their business (using EBITDA multiple of 7).
