Many companies have limited access to funding, and with different available projects the choice of prioritizing becomes a critical decision to ensure maximized value creation.
At Ollen, we help you make informed decisions by developing detailed evaluations of proposed options and making recommendations on what projects to undertake and how to optimize the available investment budget. The process provides a detailed comparison of different aspects, including but not limited to strengths, weaknesses, costs, benefits, and risks involved.
Many companies fail to develop effective marketing activities and bring added value from their marketing budget, either because their marketing plan is disconnected from their strategy, or the existing plan is not designed to maximize awareness through the right channels.
At Ollen, we help you maximize your return on marketing (ROM) by designing winning marketing plans that suit your needs and deliver the required impact.
Many companies spend time, resources and money to improve their processes, technology and services but still fail to deliver a satisfying experience to their customers because they are not improving the right touchpoints and/or they don't understand their customer needs, what they value and the journey they go through.

Many companies look promising, but in most cases the reality is different. Many acquirers fall into the trap of buying businesses which turn out to underperform, mainly due to overoptimistic commercial assumptions or black holes in their financial health and performance.
At Ollen, we help you conduct a thorough financial, commercial and operational due diligences to assess the key issues facing the business, its assumptions, and potential deal breakers.
Many Leaders know their companies inside and out. Yet, they rarely know how much their company is worth. If you are unsure about the value of your organization? How much to raise capital and to give in ownership? You conducted a valuation exercise that needs review? Or you want to assess the value of your business units &/or portfolio of companies.
At Ollen, we help you assess the fair value whether you are a startup or an established organization, using different valuation approaches and provide you with an independent opinion. If you already did a valuation exercise, we provide you with an independent review.
Cash is king and positive cash flow is a sign of a healthy organization and is an important factor to sustain a business and reduce financial risk. In good and challenging times, a relentless focus on cash flow and efficiency is a crucial part to the success of an organization. If you are short on cash or about to run out of it, working capital optimization is the cheapest way to free up cash and rebalance your accounts.
At Ollen, we work closely with the finance, IT, supply chain and commercial teams to optimize working capital and create a balance between assets and liabilities, and since not all assets can be disposed or acquired on a regular or short time basis, we focus on optimizing the liquid assets and liabilities within the operational requirements.
