Success Stories

What has Solstis™ done for Charlevoix Microbrewery?

Charlevoix Microbrewery is a small but fast-growing company. Solstis gave us the business development tools used by multinationals and the confidence to meet the kind of demand that could easily have swamped us. Our staff, which gets bigger every month, have all benefited from the knowledge gained in the program. We all use it to meet the challenges that come with rapid expansion. We have structured and systematized processes for marketing, sales, fulfillment and after-sales service. We have a clear and coherent growth strategy, and can prioritize business development-related activities. In short, we’re riding a wave of growth, not being drowned under it thanks to GSM.

What has Solstis™ done for Novatech?

Novatech enjoyed the strongest sales growth in its history over the past three years and there's no doubt that it's due largely to the world class business development methods gained with Solstis. Continuous improvement is one of our strategic aims, and Solstis not only made this easier, it drove us forward by leaps and bounds. In 2009, Novatech was awarded a special mention in the provincial industrial quality awards. The continued development of the business and the value that we deliver is now at the core of our operations, giving meaning to what we do. All this is thanks to Solstis.

What has Solstis™ done for Labplas?

Solstis™ gave us the methods and tools we needed to rework our business model when the company was in jeopardy. We had lost a client that represented over 25% of our total sales, and the unthinkable was starting to become very possible. The program allowed us to implement a proper sales process, and gave us the tools we needed to identify and attract new clients. This provided us with the steady sales growth we needed. The program gave us a new focus - a new way of going about our business. It's completely redefined our corporate culture. Since we underwent the program in 2006-2007, Labplas has more than recovered: it's grown 35% over the course of the recession and is now working with customers in over 40 countries worldwide.

What has Solstis™ done for Grizzly?

Solstis™ allowed us to restructure our business development efforts in order to get a better return on our investment in marketing and sales. By focusing us on the geographic distribution of our major clients, Solstis™ allowed us to better align our value proposition with the needs of our biggest customers. GSM bundled Solstis into a turnkey solution for us. This gave us the intensive intervention we needed at the outset, but continues to give us ongoing support which includes a brand development program to help us sharpen our market image across all that we do. We appreciate GSM's flexibility and readiness to tailor the program to our particular needs.

What has Solstis™ done for Novatech?

Solstis enabled us to better understand our market and the needs and expectations of prospective clients. It gave us the ability to systematically review the way in which we delivered our products - and service - and gave us the tools to deliver the value our customers were after. Customer mapping also helped us to change the way in which we worked, making us more efficient and better able to serve key customers. Without Solstis, Novatech would not have the dynamism and high customer satisfaction that it has today.

What has Solstis™ done for Savoura?

Solstis™ helped Savoura to improve the way it serves its customers and to better communicate the value it offers key accounts. The process was very enlightening, and allowed Savoura to better grasp what it was that our biggest customers wanted from us as their supplier. Not surprisingly, this helped us to improve the relationships we had with these customers. It also allowed us to align our sales strategy to better meet these need, even if they evolve in the future. With the help of Solstis, we were able to untangle our internal processes and to overhaul our entire approach. The program brought our different teams together and got them working towards a common goal. It also gave us a new energy and optimism for the future. In short, we're very grateful.

What has Solstis™ done for Rageot?

Solstis provides a valuable framework for the medium term by establishing meaningful aims and workable processes across a company. For Rageot, the program provided needed coherence to our various commercial processes. Internal standards were established. Our clients now enjoy a service of uniform and consistent quality, an experience made possible by our new corporate culture which puts quality and the delivery of value at the core of all that we do. A series of meeting with key accounts was very revealing. Some of our most important customers were unaware of some of our services, and we were unaware of the full effect of poor follow-up and delivery delays on our customers. These issues have now been addressed. Thanks to Solstis, we grew 12% during a recession that shuttered many of our competitors.

We're a better company, and more successful for it.
