homas Group Announces Integrated Gross Margin Management Solution to Help Companies Achieve Profit Goals

Thomas Group, Inc. (NasdaqGM:TGIS), a global operations management consulting firm, announces a unique service offering, called MarginMax™ that provides business leaders with an innovative strategic solution to achieve their profit goals. MarginMax uses an integrated gross margin management methodology, optimizing the four key drivers of gross margin – pricing optimization, product management, sales effectiveness, and operational performance – to improve gross margins 5% to 10% or more.

The MarginMax solution is tightly focused and uses proprietary diagnostic tools and models, as well as an implementation methodology distilled from 30 years of consulting experience. Its rapid implementation approach provides a way to generate significantly improved profits from a business by focusing on the existing value-creating activities of the core business without embarking on a major business transformation that could take years to implement. MarginMax will begin to drive financial results in three months, with substantial and sustainable financial results in six to twelve months.

The MarginMax solution improved a consumer packaging company’s gross margins by 13%, transforming a losing operation into solid profitability. Additional benefits were improved customer service and an aligned management team.

“In the current economy our clients cannot grow out of profit problems, and manufacturing costs have already been cut to the bone,” said John Stasz, Thomas Group, MarginMax Practice Leader. He added, “In today’s economy, integrated gross margin management is essential to driving bottom-line results.”
