Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do we use outside agencies?

e-impensa has a broad range of skills, knowledge and experience within the organisation. If we cannot ‘do it ourselves’ we will certainly know someone who does. Although most of our assignments are carried out ‘in house’. There are occasions where additional professional services may be required. Any ‘outside’ associate would work under the e-impensa brand and would be bound by our terms and conditions. Any ‘outside’ Associate’ taking on an assignment on our behalf would be fully briefed, vetted and contracted to e-impensa.

Are we good at what we do?

Yes we are – we have worked for many small, medium and large companies and organisations on various projects with outstanding results. We ensure that from the first point of contact through to the end of the project that, you as the client are given our upmost attention. At the initial brief we will be able to let you know if we can assist. There are occasions where we may not be able to help for some reason but we will always let you know. Our ‘job’ is to save you money, this is what we are good at and that is why we stick to our principles Professional , Keeping things simple , Straight Forward, Discrete and Confidential.

Specific Expertise .

Clients typically hire people who have the skills and expertise their own staff lacks, so it really pays to have a track record that speaks for itself. e-impensa can offer you this service at a fraction of the cost of other consultant based companies without any reduction on professionalism and service. Although we are small we are big enough to care.

Identify Problems  

Sometimes employees and bosses are too close to a problem inside an organisation to recognise it. This is where e-impensa can come on board and offer an independent and unbiased view.

Supplement a company's internal staff. 

Sometimes business executives discover they can save thousands of pounds a week by hiring consultants when needed rather than hiring full-time employees. They also can save additional money because consultants don't need benefits. So even though a consultant's fees are generally higher than an employee's salary, over the long haul, a consultant tends to be a less expensive option.

Catalyst for change.

 No one likes change, especially in some industry sectors. But when change is needed, e-impensa generally can do things without worrying about the corporate culture, employee morale, or other issues that tend to elicit high emotions and dissention in the ranks.

Objective onlooker. 

Besides seeing problems from a different perspective than internal staff do, e-impensa provides a fresh, objective viewpoint, and then delivers results without being concerned about what workers in the organisation might think about the results and how they were achieved.

Teach. 

At e-impensa, although we do not know everything we do have specific skills which can be taught to employees. These include debt management, supplier reduction, cost management, customer care, leadership and team work. e-impensa are more than willing to come along to your company and to teach employees the benefits of these sectors. We can also provide services which include motivation, how to get the job done and employee engagement.
